2016 NFL Draft: Monday's NFL Combine open thread

New, comments

Today we wrap up the Combine with drills for the cornerbacks and safeties. We're talking about it in here!

The 2016 NFL Combine continues today, starting at 9:00 AM with a new set of on-field workouts. You can view it live on the NFL Network or at the NFL's Combine hub, starting with the 40 yard dash. Today is the last day of the event, featuring cornerbacks and safeties.

Will anyone break Keith Marshall's current forty yard dash mark of 4.31? The Georgia running back leads the pack this year, but defensive backs often have the long speed to lead the forty. Prime suspects include Jalen Ramsey, who is also a track star when he's not playing football.

Who are the players who are going to blow up the workouts and rise into the first round? While the top players through much of the process have been Mackensie Alexander and Vernon Hargreaves, their measurables don't match up favorably with the NFL's templates. If anyone may replace them in April, Miami's Artie Burns, and Baylor's Xavien Howard have both been named as potential risers in the process.

Will we see the safety group sorted out? Ramsey aside, there is a collection of players at the Combine that needs some questions answered. Is Jeremy Cash fast enough and comfortable at safety? Is Jayron Kearse all size, or can he bring athleticism and effort to his game? Who emerges as the top talent after Ramsey - Darian Thompson, Keanu Neal, Vonn Bell, or someone else?

Here are the measurements that were taken from those players earlier this week, courtesy of Joe Marino at Draft Breakdown.
