Chicago Bears: Intriguing Round 2 options in 2018 NFL Draft (Pt. 2)

Chicago Bears: Intriguing Round 2 options in 2018 NFL Draft (Pt. 2)

The New York Giants have the second pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, where they can chose one of the top quarterbacks or, possibly, Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, who lit up the NFL Combine last week.

He didn't disappoint when it came to his 40-yard dash.

Beyond that dominant duo is a quintet of players who showed out and vastly improved their draft stock. McVay told reporters on Thursday that the Rams would be meeting with Donald's representation at the Combine. I thought at the Senior Bowl, it looked like he could compete at that level but I didn't think he excelled.

Johnson played 47 career games for the Wildcats.

Coming up: With the combine now done, the next official order of business on the NFL calendar is the start of the league March 14 at 4 p.m.

As of Saturday, D.J. Chark was the fastest player at the NFL Scouting Combine.

In the 15-minute interviews that take place throughout the week, McVay said the first thing addressed is football. It doesn't take away from this speed, which plays well on film and makes him a viable deep threat, but the wide receiver class still has questions at the top as there are no clear-cut No. 1 options.

Strong and physical in the slot, Dawson is the type of player fans of Quandre Diggs will want to watch. Do the math to see how important this weekend is to a majority of players in attendance. Detroit has free agency to sort out before the draft.

For anyone to properly understand the real importance of the NFL Combine, let's use an example.

It turned out three players tied at the top.

Two of the defensive backs that could be headed the Rams way include Colorado's Isaiah Oliver and Iowa's Joshua Jackson. Quandre Diggs can play nickel or strong safety now due to his physicality, but he ran just a 4.56-second 40 in 2013. Payne also ripped off 27 reps on the bench, and moved very well in position drills. He also showed off some athletic traits that teams will like with a 40 time of 4.75 seconds and a vertical of 33.5, which led all quarterbacks. With only one pick through the first two days in their pocket, the Eagles are fortunate not to need a ton of help.

Four quarterbacks are projected to go high in the draft; Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, and Mayfield. McDermott (4.90) tied for 11th among offensive linemen in the bench press (26 reps). Gesicki made himself known as a top prospect and should now be one of the first tight ends off the board.

By far the biggest story to come out of the Combine was the performance from Central Florida linebacker Shaquem Griffin. He was third among all offensive linemen with a 4.95 second 40-yard dash, and second among tackles in the vertical leap, three cone drill, and 20-yard shuttle.

Even more impressive, he did it all with just one hand.
