2011 NFL Draft Combine Stock Report

John Clay, RB, Wisconsin Draft Stock Up
John Clay, who was reported to be in the 250s at one point, weighed in at 230 Friday. This is a good sign for Clay, but he's still not a lock to be drafted. He needs to show that he can catch the football on Sunday.

Noel Devine, RB, West Virginia Draft Stock Up
Noel Devine weighed 160 pounds at the Senior Bowl. Citing some sort of injury that made him lose weight, Devine promised to be at 178 pounds at the Combine. He's 179.

Dion Lewis, RB, Pittsburgh Draft Stock Down
Dion Lewis was listed at 5-8, 195 during the season. I was hoping he'd eclipse the 200-pound barrier at the Combine. Instead, he's 5-7, 193.

Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas Draft Stock Down
Arkansas fans have accused me for hating Ryan Mallett for no explicable reason - see the 2011 NFL Draft Mailbag for more - but here's a Friday tweet from the Houston Chronicle's John McClain:

"A long-time personnel expert I trust told me last night that every time he looks at Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett he sees Ryan Leaf! Ouch!!!"

I personally see JaMarcus Russell. Tomato Tomahto.

Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State Draft Stock Down
Derek Sherrod managed 23 reps of 225 pounds at the Combine. That's not an awful number considering his arm length, but a lighter Gabe Carimi posted 29 reps despite the fact that his arm length is nearly the same as Sherrod's. I wrote yesterday that I was concerned about Sherrod's sudden weight gain. Let's see how he looks in the drills and 40-yard dash tomorrow.

Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland Draft Stock Down
Torrey Smith will probably run a great 40 on Sunday, but you can't help but be concerned about his hand size. Eight and 5/8 inches? Microscopic hands like those usually mean a huge drop rate. Look at Brandon LaFell (8 3/4 hands) as a prime example. Smith has been criticized for catching the ball with his body too often, and now we see why he tends to haul in passes that way.

Nate Solder, OT, Colorado Draft Stock Down
Twenty-one reps of 225? That's it? Nate Solder's arms aren't that long - they were measured at 35 inches at the Senior Bowl and 34.5 inches at the Combine. Tyron Smith, meanwhile, benched 225 pounds a whopping 29 times despite the fact that his arm length is 36 3/8 inches. Smith is also 12 pounds lighter than Solder. It's pretty clear that Smith has overtaken Solder as the No. 1 offensive tackle in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Shane Vereen, RB, California Draft Stock Up
Shane Vereen said he wants to show everyone he can be an every-down runner. So far, so good. Vereen weighed in at 5-10, 210 at the Combine. He was listed in the 200-205 range this past season.

Can anyone tell me where I can find all NFL combine data from the last decade? Does this site supply that data?

I think it's hilarious that Mallett's draft stock goes down because "a long time trusted personnel told me that everytime he sees Mallett he sees Ryan Leaf."

So it's not because of his combine performance or anything? It's because he looks like Ryan Leaf? Forgive me if I question your ability to actually analyze NFL prospects

Love the comments about how people don't understand how a player who is expected to be really fast doesn't improve their stock by being really fast.

Lineman Running 40: 03-01-2011 11:56 pm (total posts: 1)
40     37

On "Beast Mode's" 67 yarder there were 3 lineman downfield to help block when he made it into the endzone. So it does happen. It is a meaningless time (the 10 yard mark is better for measuring explosiveness though)

Why do they even make linemen do the 40? When is the last time you saw a lineman run 40 yards? It is the most unimportant stat in the combine.

So, from the combine, we have these jumps (IMO)

Dareus over Fairley (Still two top tens.)

Hankerson over Baldwin, Young, and Smith

Harris over Smith (Still solid first rounders.)

Smith and Solder over Costanzo (If there was any doubt.)

Ponder over every QB not named Locker, Newton, and Gabbert.

Gabbert over Newton.

Walter, I'm not saying 40 times aren't important, just that I don't think they have as much of a singular impact on a prospect's stock as you seemed to be implying in your reports.

why on earth wouldn't you include van dyke? He was the fastest at the combine?

Was Fairley considered the #1 Overall pick before his National Championship where he threw around O-Lineman that were much smaller than him? No. Was Marcell Dareus a Top 5 Prospect last year? Yes. Did he show consistency? Yes. Why isn't he rated higher? You tell me.

No Chimdi Chekwa? I expected a stock up. 6-0 and a 4.33 40. I think he might be a sleeper
