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

  • There were a ton of eyes on the 40 time for Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o. He had an official time of 4.82 with a 10-yard split of 1.62. Te'o's 40 was disappointing and not as fast as he needed it to be. Te'o did OK in the field drills, but demonstrated tightness. He got better with each rep and seemed to relax. When thrown the ball, Te'o had some nice hands on display.

    Te'o is a better football player than he would show in combine tests. The most important part of the Combine for him was interviewing well with teams, and all the reports have been very positive on his interviews. Te'o looks reasonably secure in the 20-40 range.

  • LSU's Kevin Minter also disappointed in the 40 with an official time of 4.81 seconds and 1.67 seconds in the first 10 yards. The 6-foot, 246-pounder was slower than expected in the 40 and stiffer than expected in the field work. The Combine really isn't suited for the physical and instinctive Minter, so teams probably won't hold it against him significantly.



  • Georgia inside linebacker Alex Ogletree is the top prospect at his position, and many expected the athletic defender to test well at the Combine. However, he didn't dominate as he ran the 40 in 4.7 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.60. Ogletree looked better in the bag drills. He was fluid and fast in the field work. Ogletree moved like a big safety, and that isn't surprising considering he used to play that positions. He, too, is a better football player than the Combine indicates.

  • Ogletree's teammate Cornelius Washington turned out to be one of the most impressive linebackers. The 6-foot-4, 265-pounder ran a surprising 40-yard dash of 4.78 seconds officially with 1.66 seconds in the first 10 yards. Washington did pretty well in the field work too, but he needs to improve his ability to keep his eyes up and not watching his feet.

    The previous day, Washington led all of the linebackers with 36 reps on the bench press. His tremendous Combine performance could cause some teams to do more digging on him and reevaluate where he belongs on the draft board.



  • Another linebacker who really helped himself at the Combine was Florida's Jonathan Bostic. He had an impressive 40-yard time of 4.61 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.58 seconds. Bostic did well on the bench press (22 reps) and looked good in the field drills. It was a nice day for Bostic to help himself stand out among the linebackers and help him earn a mid-round grade.

  • Southern Mississippi linebacker Jamie Collins had a phenomenal workout. He ran the 40 in 4.64 seconds with an impressive 10-yard split of 1.56 seconds. Collins then jumped out of the gym on the broad jump (139) and vertical jump (41.5). Both of those numbers led the linebackers. Collins (6-3, 250) also excelled in the field work and clearly has a lot of upside. He had a lot of production in college, so his Combine performance could help him to get teams to reevaluate his ranking and move him higher prior to draft day.



  • Connecticut's Sio Moore has been rising up draft boards since the end of bowl season. He played well at the East-West Shrine and the Senior Bowl, and followed those showings up with an excellent Combine performance. Moore packed on weight and is now up to 6-foot-1, 245-pounds. He put up a fast 40 at 4.65 seconds and stood out with 29 reps on the bench press. The other tests went well, and he looked good in the field work. Moore is a versatile player who should really interest 3-4 teams on the second day of the 2013 NFL Draft.

    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
