This is the 2013 NFL Combine Field Workout Recap for the defensive linemen. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  • Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd used the workouts to illustrate why he is rated at the top of the 2013 NFL Draft. Floyd had a great performance at the Combine. He ran the 40 in a stunning 4.87 seconds, unofficially, with a 10-yard split of 1.68 seconds. Floyd was also phenomenal in the field drills with quick feet and good movement skills. It was obvious that the 6-fo0t-3, 297-pounder has amazing athleticism for an interior defensive lineman. The Combine helped confirm Floyd's high first-round grade.

  • There is no doubt that Oregon outside linebacker Dion Jordan is dripping with athleticism. He put on a clinic at the Combine with a blazing unofficial 40 time of 4.53 seconds (4.60 officially) and a 10-yard split of 1.57 seconds. While the times were excellent, Jordan was even better in the field work. He was extremely fluid with super fast feet as he flew through the bags. Jordan looked awesome dropping into coverage as a linebacker. He did that well in college, so it wasn't a surprise that he looked like a natural in these drills. Jordan (6-6, 248) needs to gain weight, but he clearly is a perfect fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker.



  • BYU defensive end/outside linebacker Ezekiel Ansah showed off his supreme athleticism. The 6-foot-5, 271-pounder ran a sparkling 40 time of 4.62 seconds unofficially with a 10-yard split of 1.56. Ansah then did well in the field drills and gave more proof that he can handle outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. Ansah is an athletic freak and he did his part to maintain his early first-round status.

  • SMU defensive end Margus Hunt is another defensive freak. The 6-foot-8, 277-pounder put his track background on display in the workouts. He had an official 40 time of 4.60 with a 10-yard split of 1.62. That was tied for the third-fastest time. In the bag drills, Hunt showed that he is a natural bender and moved extremely well. He has very quick feet and was smooth moving between the pads.

    Hunt tied for the lead with all the defensive linemen with 38 reps on the bench press the day before. He truly is a rare specimen for size, speed and strength. Hunt's big Combine performance isn't a surprise, but he definitely helped himself.

  • Auburn's Corey Lemonier helped his draft stock with his Combine performance. He ran the 40-yard dash with an official time of 4.60 and 1.57 in the first 10 yards. In the field drills, Lemonier gave teams evidence that he can handle the transition to 3-4 outside linebacker. He was quick - a little tight in the hips - but fast in the field work. Lemonier (6-3, 255) has added some needed bulk and that was on display with a quality bench press total of 27 reps. He did his part to confirm a second-day grade.



  • Connecticut outside linebacker/defensive end Trevardo Williams is definitely a workout warrior, but he also has a lot production in his collegiate career. The 6-foot-1, 241-pounder blazed an official 40 time of 4.57 seconds with a mark of 1.61 in the 10-yard split. Williams was the fastest of all the defensive linemen. He also was very impressive in the bench press with 30 reps. That is a huge total for a sub-250 defender. Williams helped differentiate himself at the Combine.

  • Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore had a disappointing Combine. He ran a slow 40 time at 4.87 seconds unofficially (4.95 officially) with 1.69 in the 10-yard split. Moore made a second attempt at the 40, but pulled up with a leg injury. Worse than the 40, the 6-foot-5, 250-pounder managed only 12 reps on the bench press; the lowest total of any defensive lineman. Moore had good numbers in the broad jump (122) and vertical jump (35.5). The strength is the biggest red flag and it could cause teams to reevaluate him.

  • It wasn't surprising that LSU outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo looked good at the Combine. Everybody knows that he is extremely athletic. Mingo had one of the fastest 40 times at 4.58 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.55 seconds. He was explosive in the field drills, too. Mingo did extremely well dropping into coverage and was very fluid in and out of his breaks. The 6-foot-4, 241-pounder is a player who thrives in space and clearly isn't big enough to play defensive end in the pros. Mingo used the Combine to show that his athletic ability is legitimate.



  • One highly regarded defensive end who had a mildly disappointing performance was Florida State's Bjoern Werner. His official 40 time was 4.83 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.66 seconds. Werner did better in the defensive line field drills as he showed good feet and burst. Werner (6-3, 266) was asked to participate in the 3-4 outside linebacker drills as well, and he looked stiff to flip his hips and redirect. Werner's outing at the Combine demonstrated that he isn't a great fit as a 3-4 edge linebacker and would need development if he's drafted into that scheme.

  • Ohio State defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins ran the 40 at a time of 5.31 seconds officially with a slow 10-yard split of 1.80. It wasn't a good time for Hankins, but not terrible for a heavy tackle. The 6-foot-3, 320-pounder was stiff moving through the field drills, but he had more quickness than one would think. The 2013 NFL Draft features a loaded defensive tackle class, and Hankins didn't do enough at the Combine to narrow the gap with the higher-ranked players like Floyd.

  • A few other defensive linemen are worth mentioning. Missouri's Sheldon Richardson (5.02), North Carolina's Sylvester Williams (5.03) and UCLA's Datone Jones (4.80) all had solid Combine performances. They had decent times, but didn't blow anyone away. None of the trio hurt or helped themselves significantly.

    1) Freestyle, no shot stick!!!2) All-Star Weekend3) Michael Jordan (among other player enndesrmeots)4) My Player type of game mode (Legendary)5) Accessories (Shoes, tatts, headbands, etc )6) Extremely Better Player & Coach Models (more realistic)7) Highlights (from the current game & other games at halftime/end of game) After game interviews9 &10) Easy on the steals!!! Don't make gameplay default all 50 s across the board i.e., close shots, midrange shots, 3pt shots, steals, blocks, etc. The gameplay should embodie the REALISM of the NBA.

    Well, I hope to cut only the fat away, not the muscle and bone. I cut about 8 to 10% from the rough drtafs of SOUL OF SORCERY and SOUL OF TYRANTs, and I don't think they suffered for it.

    Thought Richardson was more of a 4-3 DT. Eagles dumped Patterson because he didn't fit so now we're going to pick up a 6-3, 294 lb end with 4 sacks. Eagles took Cox last year who Richardson is like. Richardson isn't big enough to be the NT we're looking for either.

    We need a big NT, cbs, dbs, sam, rush LB and that 3-4 DE is not hard to fill and shouldn't be a priority at all. We can get someone like Richardson elsewhere.

    I had to stop looking at the mock after seeing Richardson at 4.

    Stop reacting like a fan walter to every transaction. Eagles are undergoing a ton of changes.

    Fisher, Jordan, Ansah, Milliner, Star are the guys for the Eagles. Not Richardson, not Floyd either with his trex arms.

    They picked a couple of examples. I watched every game this year, mostly watching him play as there wasn't a lot to be excited about with Mizzou. He holds his own against the run and has a nasty streak. I also might add that there is not a single player in this draft that has a motor like he does.

    Well considering that everyone was salivating over Keke Mingo yet you have his stock dropping. Are you on drugs? The kid was a freak at the combine, with natural fluid hip movement in coverage.

    Did you not watch the clips Mayock and Sapp were going over of Richardson getting washed away in run support? Not exactly someone you want draft in a 3-4 defense.

    I disagree. He would be better as a NT and the Chiefs used a first rounder on one of those last year. There are better 5-tech DE's in this draft and there certainly are guys as good later on in the draft. Besides, if KC takes another D-lineman in the first, there will be riots. Glenn Dorsey, Tyson Jackson, Poe all in the last few drafts.

    They said it could have been from dehydration. Supposedly he lost 10 lbs in 3 days because of a busy schedule. If he checks out OK in the coming weeks he is still who I would take if I was Reid. Can't be blocked by one guy.

    Should go first overall. Has the numbers, has the highest motor of anyone in the draft this year. He's going to be an All-Pro and the Chiefs need a proper 5-Tech DE.

    Walt, no mention of Star's heart condition hear. I definitely think the top 5 just took a big hit. Moore with 12 reps, Star with the heart condition, the KC Cheifs apparently trading for Alex Smith. Add in Jones' medical red flags, and this draft just went all to hell.

    Margus Hunt with 38 reps at 6'8, 277 lbs is straight beast.
