NFL Combine: Players Eagles saw, should draft (Mike Gesicki, Shaquem Griffin)

2 Winners and 2 losers from Day 3 of the NFL combine

NFL scouting combine schedule 2018: Defensive backs workouts close out the combine

Bryan is a rising prospect, and his combine may have pushed him into the first round, but his draft stock has always been built around his talent and athleticism, with limited production (just five-and-a-half sacks in his three years at Florida) providing the question marks.

Hyperbole? Maybe. But when the Los Angeles Rams traded for Marcus Peters, they weren't trading for a guy who simply fills a need, they got a game changer who does just that-changes the game. The Browns could even take him with the first overall pick.

On NFL Total Access, host Dan Hellie sat down with Terrell Davis and DeMarcus Ware to talk about which athletes helped themselves the most in the combine this year, and Davis was a huge fan. They're the top two players on my big board, as well as prototypes for their respective positions.


Other surprise picks in this mock include Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph (No. 16 overall, Baltimore Ravens), Georgia offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn (No. 18 overall, Seattle Seahawks), UCF cornerback Mike Hughes (No. 22 overall, Buffalo Bills), Iowa offensive lineman James Daniels (No. 25 overall, Tennessee Titans) and USC defensive lineman Rasheem Green (No. 26 overall, Atlanta Falcons).

Chubb had a good combine performance as well. Though his day would end prematurely with an ankle injury (causing him to miss the positional drills), he managed to run a blazing 40-time of 4.32 (tied for the best time across all groups at the 2018 combine).

Rosen can be a good National Football League quarterback, he just needs to get teammates to buy into him. Now, there seems to be more controversy in speculation. With such a solid showing at the Combine, Pro Days across the country will be important for the draft's top prospects to set themselves apart. Darnold will be selected early in the draft, but as with all the quarterbacks, it depends how much the Giants like him.


The smart thing for the Browns to do is take the incredible Barkley at one. After a strong combine performance, he is considered the favorite to be the first pick by many.

He may take time to develop, but he has incredible arm strength.

"If the ball's in the air, I consider it mine", Gesicki said, per NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo. The Browns have subscribed to that in the past, realized they suck at drafting quarterbacks, then traded out of the opportunity to draft Carson Wentz, and a year ago they drafted DeShone Kizer in the second round.


"The fall down the draft board for Orlando Brown will not be a small one", says Lance Zierlein.
