Default Early combine thoughts

NFL from the sidelines

Early combine thoughts

Mike Pouncey isn't identical to his brother in every way. Mike's 40 time was about .05 less than what Maurkice ran last year.

Outside of that, they're pretty darn close.

© None of the Pitt guys have done much to help themselves at the combine.

Not only did Dion Lewis measure in at just 5-7, he also ran a 4.57 40, which is too slow for such a small back.

Lewis can play and 40 times aren't everything, but he's likely to slip into the third day of the draft.

Fullback Henry Hynoski can play as well, but the 5.06 was the slowest time of any RB/FB. Yes, Hynoski isn't going to make his money running with the ball, but he's got to be able to get to the hole.

Wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin and offensive tackle Jason Pinkston also didn't run particularly well.

Baldwin was OK with a 4.50, but he needed to break 4.50 considering how lazy he looked on the field last season. The only way he was going to sneak into the first round was by putting up a 4.45 and killing his personal interviews.

Those are reportedly also not going particularly well.

Pinkston, meanwhile, didn't exactly show off his skills with a 5.47 40 and has looked average in drills.

© Defensive tackle Stephen Paea shattered the combine bench press record with 49, showing that not only can he play, he's ridiculously strong as well.

(Baldwin was OK with a 4.50)

I think 4.50 for his size is pretty decent! But I don't think we should draft him anyways so...

Jonathan Baldwin, Pittsburgh – It’s going to be hard to keep Baldwin out of the first round after his week in Indy. After this week, he should be sitting comfortably atop the second tier of receivers. His 4.50 40 is a nice time for a player his size and his 42” vertical will help him maintain a comparison or two to Fitzgerald—though Fitzgerald he is not. He did round his cuts a bit as bigger receivers do, but I want to see his 3-cone and shuttle times before I decide that his potential for improvement in this area is limited.
