This is the 2013 NFL Combine Stock Report for the linebackers. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.


2013 NFL Combine: Stock Report - Linebackers

Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State
Arthur Brown packed on 10 pounds on top of his listed weight at Kansas State, checking in at 6-0, 241. Brown should be able to play every position in the 4-3 in addition to inside linebacker in the 3-4. That versatility will be huge for his draft stock. He could be picked at the end of the first round.

Jon Bostic, ILB, Florida
Jon Bostic had a great performance on Monday. He ran an unofficial 4.50 40 with an impressive 1.58 10-yard split. He also looked good in the field drills, which should help him get picked on the second day of the 2013 NFL Draft.

Jamie Collins, DE/OLB, Souhern Miss
Jamie Collins nearly broke the vertex. Seriously. He leapt up and touched the near top of it, causing the thing to shake and nearly collapse. Collins registered a 41.5-inch vertical with an 11-7 broad jump, a 4.59 40 and a 1.56 10-yard split. He's a freak athlete who really helped himself in Indianapolis.



Zaviar Gooden, OLB, Missouri
Zaviar Gooden had one of the most impressive bench performances by any linebacker. Gooden recorded 27 reps of 225 despite weighing almost exactly that amount (234).

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Gooden had the fastest unofficial time of all the linebackers, securing a 4.47 official 40 with a 1.53 10-yard split. He also notched a 10-11 broad jump.

Jelani Jenkins, OLB, Florida
Jelani Jenkins is another linebacker who added some unexpected weight to his frame. Listed in the 230s at Florida, Jenkins showed up to the Combine at 6-0, 243.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Jenkins' strong showing continued. He managed 27 reps of 225 during Sunday's bench press.

Jarvis Jones, DE/OLB, Georgia
Terrible news for Jarvis Jones - the medical exams did not go so well. He received red flags from many teams, and Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported that at least 10 teams took him off their draft boards. Pauline also predicted a Da'Quan Bowers-like fall for Jones. I had Jones going at No. 17 to the Steelers in my most recent 2013 NFL Mock Draft, but I may now knock him down even further.



Sio Moore, DE/OLB, Connecticut
Another linebacker who had some positive weight gain. Sio Moore was listed at 6-2, 229 at Connecticut. He checked in at 6-1, 245. The lost inch doesn't matter; the 16 added pounds are huge because it allows Moore to be projected to most 3-4 teams as a rush linebacker.

FEB. 24 UPDATE: Moore did well on the bench. Only one linebacker (Cornelius Washington) recorded more reps. Moore put up 225 pounds 29 times.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Moore was one of the most impressive linebackers in the field drills. He also notched a 4.62 unofficial 40, a 38-inch vertical and a 10-5 broad jump. Mike Mayock said that he has Moore as a second-round prospect.

Sean Porter, OLB, Texas A&M
Here's a linebacker who didn't put on the necessary bulk. Sean Porter actually dropped a pound, weighing in at 6-1, 229. Porter projects as a 4-3 weakside linebacker only, which is not good news for his draft stock because he doesn't seem particularly suited for that position.

Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame
The consensus was that Manti Te'o handled himself well in front of a packed press conference. I would agree with that. He gave all of the right answers and seemed genuine. However, it's the press conference itself that happens to be the issue. NFL personnel hate distractions and media circuses, and that's exactly what they're going to get with Te'o. Some teams will purposely avoid Te'o in the first round because of this.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Mike Mayock said Te'o had to run a 4.75 or better to maintain his draft status as a 20-32 prospect. Te'o went 4.82. He also looked a little stiff in the drills. There's now a legitimate chance he'll fall into the second round.



Chase Thomas, DE/OLB, Stanford
Chase Thomas has been a prospect who's been falling throughout the draft process. He was unable to use the Combine to halt his collapsing stock. He ran a 4.91 40 and didn't look very good overall. He's a third-day prospect at this point.

Cornelius Washington, DE/OLB, Georgia
Cornelius Washington blew every linebacker away Sunday in the bench press. He posted 36 reps. The next-closest linebacker was Sio Moore with 29 reps.

FEB. 25 UPDATE: Washington continued to dominate the Combine on Monday. He ran an unofficial 4.50 40 and also registered a 39-inch vertical and 10-8 broad jump. Washington had very little production at Georgia, so this performance was very important for his draft stock.

Teo did post great times in the shuttle and 3 cone though. Don't know why people are ignoring that. His 10 yard split was pretty good too.

After the 40 yard dash Manti Te'o reportedly told one team scout that the reason he ran so slow was quote "Wait you guys seriously didn't see my girlfriend? I was giving her a piggy back ride the whole 40! You mean you really didn't see her?!?!?!"

40 Times:
4.82: James Laurinaitis
Stephen Tulloch:4.81
Brandon Spikes: 5.0
4.86: Rey Maualuga
E. J. Henderson: 4.80
Jon Beason: 4.72
Brian Cushing: 4.74
Curtis Lofton: 4.79
Bowman: 4.7
London Fletcher: 4:85
D'Qwell Jackson:4.73

All these guys didn't impress in the 40 times, and yet many went in the 1st/2nd round. 40 times doesn't mean as much with middle linebackers, but it always is nice to have!

Willis: 4.51
Urlacher: 4.57
DeMeco Ryan: 4.65
Lawrence Timmons: 4.62
Karlos Dansby: 4.56
A. J. Hawk: 4.59
David Harris: 4.59



Urlac: 4.57

Teos stock dropped because of how bad he played vs Alabama. The fact that hes an idiot does not help either.

I was going to disagree w/your analysis of Te'o but you're right. Constant media attention for anything other than his play on the field can be seen as a major distraction. On the ther hand it might be better for him to go in the 2nd or 3rd round.

Thinking that Teo's stock decreased is retarded
