Stock up, Stock down following the NFL Combine (w/ Video & Analysis)


Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma

Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. Orlando Brown’s 40-yard dash was good for the 5th-slowest time by any player at the Combine since 2003. To put his bench press performance into perspective: Will Hernandez is the current leader with 37 reps, and the combine record is 49 reps. And to add the cherry on top, Brown’s vertical and broad jump were both dead last within the OL group. Yikes. Safe to say Brown has an important Pro Day coming up.

Ronald Jones II, RB, USC

Ronald Jones II has tons of talent, but also some question marks. A solid combine performance could have really helped Jones solidify his status as a top back in this class. While not fully competing in the drills will not kill Jones, it was not ideal for him to sit out while other RBs shined. Hopefully Jones is healthy by the time of his Pro Day; he should be able to make up for lost time there. For now, his stock goes down.

Tim Settle, DT, Virginia

I was part of the Tim Settle hype, not going to lie. I had him ranked as tied for 5th best Interior Defensive Lineman. This will be changing; I think he is still a good player, but he is not a fluid athlete and his clumsiness is worrisome. Settle’s stock is down, but with what he put on tape he could still hear his named called during Day 2 of the NFL Draft.

This is really unfortunate for Billy Price. Price is regarded by many as a 1st round talent, but his newly partially torn pectoral is not helping his draft stock; he is set to miss around 4 months. The good news is Price should be ready for the season, but this injury could force him to drop out of the First Round. Price missed the opportunity to showcase his skills on field against other top OL prospects, and this is unfortunate. We all hope he has a speedy recovery.
