INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Alabama wide receiver Henry Ruggs III ran a blazing 40-yard day in 4.27 seconds. The speedster had hoped to break John Ross's record of 4.22 seconds set at the 2017 NFL scouting combine. Ruggs' time was still the fastest Thursday night when the NFL's annual gathering of top college prospects was showcased in prime time for the first time. On-field drills and the 40-yard dash were moved from the mornings and afternoons into the evening as the NFL sought to get more eyeballs on the 330 or so prospects working out for teams preparing for the draft.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Derrick Brown and Raekwon Davis are supposed to be two of this year's best defensive tackle prospects. Both possess massive size. Both have the upside NFL scouts crave. Both come from successful college programs and both went back to school last season to improve their draft stock. Brown's decision appears to be paying dividends at this spring's NFL draft nears. But Davis needs this week's annual NFL scouting combine and Alabama's pro day to rebuild his value to league scouts.
