What many people also forget is that in 1999, former Atlanta Falcons seventh-round pick Rondel Menendez shared the record with Johnson, but he suffered a knee injury in a preseason game and was never the same.
A couple of those players quickly vaulted into the conversation about who had the best overall experience at one of the NFL's most important pre-draft events.
With defensive backs wrapping up the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine from Lucas Oil Field in Indy on Monday morning, let's take a look at 10 players who have improved their draft stock over the past week. At 6-foot-6, 257 pounds, his 4.57 40-yard dash was the fifth-fastest among tight ends. "His 35.5" vertical was fourth among linebackers. Some analysts now think he's a first-round pick. Minnesota cornerback Jalen Myrick was the only other player to run faster than 4.3, clocking in at 4.28 seconds. Ross finished with a 4.22, but pulled up in the last five or so yards with a hamstring injury.
Foster, the SEC Defensive Player of the Year and Butkus Award victor as the nation's top linebacker, was the first true linebacker selected in each of CBSSports.com's mock drafts and the No. 7 overall prospect on NFLDraftScout.com's board. It we would be remiss if we did not start this update without going straight to one, Mr. John Ross III.
India set series benchmarks on tough batting day
Rahul is the first batsman to manage 200 runs or more in the present series - his tally being 215 (ave.53.75) in four innings. India at 242 for 7 and all top order batsmen left, had little hope to further bulge the overall lead.
Ross posted an official time of 4.22 seconds in the 40 on Saturday, breaking the previous record of 4.24 set by West Virginia running back Chris Johnson in 2008. Garrett, of course, shined at the 40 and may have convinced the Browns to select him first overall. Most (if not all) of his interviews were canceled after the altercation, preventing teams from getting a more in-depth interview from a guy they may spend a first-round pick on. Coming out of the combine, though, everyone is talking about Conley, who ran a 4.4. If his medicals check out, he could land in the top 15.
The NFL Combine did not go very well for Alabama's Reuben Foster. "Before, I just figured, I am faster than this guy, I can just outrun this guy all the time". "He has a lot of questions to answer". Jones was pinned as an underneath threat, but his 4.45-second 40-yard dash could aid his case as a player who can attack a defense at multiple levels. It also doesn't hurt that his head coach at Clemson, Dabo Swinney, gave him a glowing endorsement (and warning to National Football League teams) to cleeveland.com after the championship game: "If they pass on Deshaun Watson, they're passing on Michael Jordan". Ross was first-team all-conference and one of 10 semifinalist for the Biletnikoff, which goes to the nation's top receiver.
"I feel like I'm the best guy in the draft", Peppers said.
Everybody expected the athletic show Myles Garrett put on but another great day came from the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year that not many outside the Little Apple know about. "He looked like Wolverine".
