We will review the top NFL Combine performances -- by position -- over the next few days. Reese's Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage, who spent 20 years in the NFL as a coach, scout and executive -- including as the GM of the Cleveland Browns for four years -- was in Indianapolis for all four days of the on-field workouts.
Greg Robinson OT Auburn
At 6’5”, 332 pounds runs 4.92 in the 40-yard dash. He was a lot of man moving really fast. He was the star of the day on Saturday.
Jake Matthews OT Texas A&M
He lived up to all they hype, checked off all the boxes. He’s going to go in the top five or six of this draft.
Taylor Lewan OT Michigan
Another senior offensive lineman who was a bit of a surprise in terms of how well he tested, running the fasted time of the offensive linemen (4.87 in 40). He had a terrific workout.
Weston Richburg OC Colorado State
Just slowly and steadily moves through the process towards the NFL Draft. I think he’s probably a third-rounder at this point.
Joel Bitonio OT/OG Nevada
Ran in the 4.9’s in the 40, worked out extremely well. He’s another player – because of his versatility – who has a chance to go in the second or third round of this draft.
A.C. Leonard TE Tennessee State
He ran the fastest time among the tight ends (4.50 in the 40), very athletic. He started his career at Florida. We’ll see how he answers the questions about off-the-field issues, but he looked like a really good player.
Eric Ebron TE North Carolina
Was limited in what he did in Indianapolis in the workouts, but he’s a standout, going to go high in the draft.
C.J. Fiedorowicz TE Iowa
Solid in Mobile at the Reese’s Senior Bowl and continued to shine ran in the 4.7s, tested very well in the shuttles and the jumps, caught the ball well. Probably a third or fourth round pick.
Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
Has been really consistent since the season ended, both at the Senior Bowl and Combine. He dropped two passes at the end of his career at the Gator Bowl and I don’t think he has dropped one since then. He’s looked very good at the Combine and in Mobile. He’s a player, you know exactly what you’re going to get. Probably forecasted as a second or third tight end on a team, but certainly a contributor as a rookie in 2014.
