2011 NFL Draft Combine Stock Report

Jonathan Baldwin, WR, Pittsburgh Draft Stock Up
Jonathan Baldwin ran a great 40 (4.45) considering his massive frame (6-4, 228). He also posted a 42-inch vertical and a 10-foot-9 broad jump. Concerns remain about Baldwin's attitude, but there's no questioning his physical ability.

Vincent Brown, WR, San Diego State Draft Stock Down
"Vincent... Brown... is a... terrible... playa..." Brown ran a very disappointing 4.66 40 at the Combine on Sunday.

Delone Carter, RB, Syracuse Draft Stock Up
Delone Carter ran a 4.53 40 and notched a 37-inch vertical at the Combine. Not bad for a 5-9, 222-pound back. Carter, who has the same build as Maurice Jones-Drew, has a shot of being a Day 2 pick.

John Clay, RB, Wisconsin Draft Stock Down
John Clay slimmed down to 230 pounds, but didn't look any faster. Clay ran a 4.77 40 and didn't cut very quickly in the drills. He could be an undrafted free agent.

Mario Fannin, RB, Auburn Draft Stock Up
Mario Fannin was the third-string running back at Auburn, but opened up some eyes at the Combine. He ran a 4.37 40 and notched a 37.5-inch vertical at 5-10, 231 pounds. Fannin is not a good runner, but he has proven that he can excel at catching the ball out of the backfield. He could become a solid third-down back in the NFL.

Edmund Gates, WR, Abilene Christian Draft Stock Up
Edmund Gates had a very impressive Combine, running a 4.35 40 at 6-0, 192 and notching a 10-foot-11 broad jump.

Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama Draft Stock Up
Mark Ingram's 40 time wasn't impressive (4.58), but he had the best 10-yard split of all the running backs, which is far more important. It would be shocking if Ingram made it past the Dolphins at No. 15.

Jerrod Johnson, QB, Texas A&M Draft Stock Down
Jerrod Johnson was one of the worst quarterbacks at the Combine. He really struggled with his accuracy, and his 40 time (4.75) was a disappointment.

Julio Jones, WR, Alabama Draft Stock Up
Julio Jones blew up the Combine. Prior to Jones' 40, Mike Mayock predicted that the 6-3, 220-pound Alabama wideout would run a low 4.5. Jones responded with a 4.39. He later notched a 38.5-inch vertical and an 11-foot-3 broad jump. Jones now has Twitter nation speculating that there's a new No. 1 receiver. It's still A.J. Green, but Jones narrowed the gap. There's no way he makes it to the Rams at No. 14.

Greg Little, WR, North Carolina Draft Stock Down
Sports Illustrated has reported that Greg Little has been "less than honest" during the Combine interviews - "and that's putting it nicely." SI speculates that Little could go undrafted, but I'm not buying that. He's too talented. Some team that doesn't care about character concerns (Bengals) will take him in the later rounds.

Jake Locker, QB, Washington Draft Stock Up
Finally, a stock up for Jake Locker. Locker performed well during the drills at the Combine and drew praise from most draft analysts. He's still a likely Round 2 selection, but he probably won't fall into Round 3.

Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas Draft Stock Up
Ryan Mallett looked spectacular in the passing drills, which shouldn't be a surprise. As I tweeted (@walterfootball), "No one should be surprised Ryan Mallett looked great today. He's like a hot chick w/ STDs. Looks great, but better to stay away."

Cam Newton, QB, Auburn Draft Stock Down
Cam Newton was wildly inaccurate during the Combine drills. He went 11-of-21, and nearly all of his misses, including several 10-yard outs, were high. Newton had a great broad jump (10-6), but that's a meaningless stat. Save for Josh Johnson, all of the quarterbacks who have recorded a long broad jump at the Combine in the past decade are either out of the league or rotting on a depth chart.

On a side note, I'm really looking forward to Newton's broadcasting career. Echoing Emmitt Smith's stint on ESPN, Newton told the NFL Network crew that he "wants to be consistency." Somewhere in this world, a striped leopard is shaking its head.

Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State Draft Stock Up
Stephen Paea shattered the Combine bench press record Sunday, posting 49 reps of 225 pounds. Before you dismiss this as a meaningless stat, Mike Mayock opined that this would translate to the football field. If it weren't for a knee injury, Paea would be a near first-round lock.

Christian Ponder, QB, Florida State Draft Stock Up
Christian Ponder was the consensus top quarterback at the Combine. He displayed great accuracy and adequate arm strength. He's currently the favorite to be the third quarterback off the board this April, though Jake Locker and Colin Kaepernick are close.

Joshua Portis, QB, California-PA Draft Stock Up
I thought Joshua Portis was really impressive at the Combine. The big-armed cousin of Clinton Portis, Joshua was one of the more accurate passers on the field. Unfortunately, he has character issues, so he's nothing more than a late-round prospect.

Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland Draft Stock Up
Torrey Smith's microscopic 8 5/8-inch hands are a concern, but he showed us Sunday why he's a legitimate first-round prospect. The 6-1, 204-pound Smith ran a 4.37. He also notched a 41-inch vertical and a 10-foot-6 broad jump.

Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech Draft Stock Up
Ryan Williams had a 40-inch vertical, but that wasn't his highlight at the Combine. Williams made a jaw-dropping cut during one of the drills that prompted Mike Mayock to exclaim, "That's why he's my No. 2 running back!"

Titus Young, WR, Boise State Draft Stock Down
Titus Young has been called a "poor man's DeSean Jackson." Jackson ran a 4.31 at the 2008 NFL Combine. Young managed just a 4.43 on Sunday. He's still a very good prospect, but his chances of going in the first round have pretty much diminished.

Let's not forget this is still the combine. A great or sub-par 40 time should not lift up or bring down anyone an entire round. If the kid can play, he can play. If he's got problems, money won't fix them, it'll usually exarcerbate such issues.

Jerry Rice & Michael Irvin ran 4.6 to 4.7 40 times and I don't remember hearing any analyst commenting on their 40 times during any game they played. I think the combine stats are over-analyzed.

Ryan Mallett has a cannon arm and a brash attitude. Somewhere in his lair, Undead Al is beaming, "Ryan Mallett... is a... great playah. He's got the... talent... and the... Raidah spirit."

Young, though, looked great with his route running and Torrey Smith was awful.

Today's combine recap,

As Hankerson's about to catch the ball, (camera pan) Analysts: Oh look Newton tying his shoes, (guh splooge). WRs are now running their 40s. (camera pan) Ananlysts: Oh look Newton is listening to music (guh splooge.

I wish I see the combine in full without hearing about the hard-ons these guys have

one more thing, AZHusker, ingram had the best 10 yard split of any RB, which is way more important for backs than the actual forty, since you see way more 10 yard runs than 40 yard runs in the NFL. but Helu's stock is definitely rising, i'll give you that

and wizdumb, Vereen looked awful in every drill except the bench press. And Dion Lewis is moving up if anything. He was incredible in the weave drill and the cut drill where a coach holds a bag and acts as a tackler, then the back must cut in the right direction. He was by far the most impressive in both those drills, which are far more important than 40 times and bench presses

My bad walt, i didnt realize. It's just crazy what a huge discrepancy there is in these times and the ones the NFL puts out. I mean Titus Young's time was 4.59 according to, which is a huge difference from 4.43. and Baldwin was a 4.5 not a 4.45 on their site. I think Hankerson is a first round lock after running in the 4.4's today

Roy Helu weighed more than Ingram and ran a 4.43 40 and you rave about Ingram??? Helu's stock went way up while Ingram reportedly lost weight and ran a high 4.5

I'm hoping Shane Veeren jumps up draft boards and Dion Lewis, or Quizz Rodgers fall to the Bucs in the middle rounds. Their combine numbers are not good, but they looked like the best runners by far to me.
