2013 NFL Combine: Field Workout Recap - Wide Receivers

  • Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrellle Patterson showed why his dynamic physical skill set has him as the No. 1-rated receiver in the 2013 NFL Draft. The 6-foot-2, 216-pound Patterson proved he is a physical freak and matchup nightmare with a 4.37 unofficial time in the 40-yard dash. His official time came in at a sterling 4.42 seconds. Patterson had some dropped passes in the field work; those were a problem for him last season. During the gauntlet drill, he showed the potential to make nice hands catches, but the early-entry wideout needs a lot of work. Patterson dropped a perfectly thrown bomb deep downfield. The Combine proved that his athletic skill set is off the charts, but he is still very raw and will need some patience to improve his all around receiving ability.

  • West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin was expected to be fast, but he exceeded expectations with a 40-yard dash unofficial time of 4.25 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.45. The official time came in at 4.34 seconds and tied him for second. Austin was very good in the field drills, too. He ran good routes and displayed nice hands. Austin confirmed for NFL scouts that he has elite speed and looks poised to remain a source of splash plays in the NFL.



  • Texas wide receiver Marquise Goodwin was the only player faster than Austin. Goodwin didn't get a lot of passes thrown his way in college, but he stood out with a good performance at the Senior Bowl. The 5-foot-9, 183-pounder kept the momentum going with an impressive Combine. He ran the 40-yard dash with an official time of 4.25 seconds and a 10-yard split of 1.43 seconds. The official time was 4.27 seconds.

    Goodwin's 40 time was expected to be great. He is an Olympic track athlete and had a goal of breaking Chris Johnson's Combine record. Goodwin had some struggles in tracking and catching passes in the on-field drills. That dampers the enthusiasm from his 40 time, so Goodwin may not get a huge boost from the Combine.

  • Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (6-1, 214) had a solid Combine performance. He ran the 40-yard dash with an unofficial time of 4.50 seconds with an underwhelming 10-yard split of 1.59 seconds. In the field drills, however, Hopkins was one of the most impressive receivers with great route-running and hands. Those were the traits that made him extremely productive in 2012. He did his part in Indianapolis to confirm his grade as a top-60 selection.

  • Like Hopkins, West Virginia wide receiver Stedman Bailey ran a decent 40-yard dash but thrived in the field drills. He was massively productive for the Mountaineers because of great hands, route-running and quickness. At the Combine, Bailey was very fluid running downfield and did a perfect job of catching passes with his hands. He unofficially ran the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.58 seconds. Bailey's quality Combine should lock him into a selection within the top-100 picks.



  • Tennessee wide receiver Justin Hunter helped himself with a good time in the 40-yard dash. He was a fast and explosive receiver before a 2011 knee injury that caused season-ending surgery. Hunter was productive in 2012 and gradually seemed to be getting his speed back. He ran the 40 in 4.41 seconds at the Combine, with a nice 10-yard split of 1.54 seconds. It was the fifth-fastest 10-yard split of the receivers in his group. Considering the 6-foot-4, 196-pounder is much bigger than a lot of those receivers, it was a good showing.

    Hunter had some struggles in the field drills with his route-running. Coaches will see that issue as more correctable, so his better-than-expected 40 time could help him on draft day.

  • One of the surprising players to stand out at receiver was Texas A&M's Ryan Swope. The 6-foot, 205-pounder ran the 40-yard dash with an official time of 4.34 seconds. That tied with Tavon Austin for the second-fastest time. Swope ran good routes in the field drills and displayed that quickness and speed. He had a couple of dropped passes, but he can rectify that in the NFL. It was a superb Combine that helped Swope to stand out.

  • TCU wide receiver Josh Boyce had one of the most surprising Combine 40 times among the wide receivers with an official mark of 4.38 seconds. His 10-yard split was 1.56 seconds. Boyce (5-11, 206) didn't play that fast at TCU, so his 40 time could cause teams to go back and reevaluate him. His performance in the field work showed that he needs to improve his route-running and hands. Boyce had a bad dropped pass on perfectly thrown ball downfield. He still looks like a mid-to-late third-day pick.



  • While a lot of receivers didn't stand out in the field work, USC's Robert Woods was an exception. He showed off nice hands, especially in the gauntlet. Woods ran better than expected in the 40-yard dash with an unofficial time of 4.44 seconds. It was especially important for him to run well considering the ankle injury he was dealing with throughout the 2012 season. Woods (6-0, 201) needed a good Combine to help ensure that he is a second-round pick.

  • Baylor wide receiver Terrance Williams needed a good Combine after a quiet Senior Bowl, and he came through with a good overall performance. Williams (6-2, 208) ran better than expected with an unofficial time of 4.46 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He also had a good 10-yard split of 1.52 seconds. Williams performed well in the field work too. He led the nation in receiving yards in 2012 and made big plays downfield, so he showed that he plays at 4.4 speed. The Combine should help Williams.

  • Oregon State wide receiver Markus Wheaton ran well with a 40 time of 4.45 seconds officially. It was a top-10 time, but he had a few drops in the gauntlet drill, including an ugly one on an out route. Wheaton (5-11, 189) has a bad habit of letting the ball get into his body and that leads to the drops. He is likely to go on the second day.

    Not sure why Rodney Smith is getting no love. 6'4" 225lbs, ran 4.5, measured the biggest hands for WR at the combine, and posted a decent vertical and solid scores in athletic tests.

    Best lineman in the draft. Will have the best career. Mizzou lineman that go in the first round are awesome. Justin Smith, Aldon Smith are already stars and Ziggy Hood is a strong player as well. Sheldon will be a better all round player than all 3 of them.

    How can Patterson's stock be going up when he's dropping balls that hit him in the hands, while letting others get into his body, all while running inconsistant routes as well as in and out of breaks? It doesn't matter how fast you are or how great you jump if you can't run the route correctly or catch the ball when it gets to you. I like him, but this talk of him going in the top half of round one seems unlikely. Teams are staying away from athletic WR freaks with very little experience in the early going of round one - see Stephen Hill last year.

    Everyone who is giving justin Hunter a stock up grade apparently did not watch him run routes or catch the ball. He looked sloppy as hell at both.

    Xosder--From what I saw today, Wilson looked pretty fluid and was a hands catcher. Didn't see many passes get into his body.
    Overall, I think he did well in the field drills, but the interview sessions are going to be where he needs to impress.

    Was hoping for some coverage of marquees wilson. Once considered a potential 1st rounder, he had a disaterous 2012. His numbers seem better than expected, was wondering about field drills.
