The whirlwind week in Indianapolis known as the NFL Scouting Combine has wrapped up. Now all 32 teams are gearing up for Pro Days around the country and their final rounds of Draft day preparation. Before we move on to the next part of the NFL offseason, take a look back at the week that was in Indy.
Bucky Brooks of NFL.com listed SMU defensive lineman Margus Hunt as the Combine’s biggest winner. “Hunt put himself squarely on the radar of scouts after turning in sensational marks in the 40-yard dash (4.60 seconds), vertical jump (34.5 inches), broad jump (10-foot-1) and bench press (38 reps),” Brooks wrote. “He also displayed outstanding movement skills, agility and body control in positional drills, leading some scouts to believe he can develop into an immediate-impact player as a five-technique (a defensive end in a 3-4).”
