This is the 2014 NFL Combine Stock Report for the linebackers. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.


2014 NFL Combine: Stock Report - Linebackers

Jonathan Brown, LB, Illinois
Jonathan Brown posted some of the worst numbers of all the linebackers at the Combine. Not counting Yawin Smallwood, who injured himself during his run, Brown was the only linebacker to go 40 yards slower than five seconds (5.03). His 10-yard split (1.79), 3-cone (7.77) and jumps were all awful.

Khalil Mack, DE/OLB, Buffalo
I'd like to mention Khalil Mack, who had a pretty steady Combine. He did well in the drills and managed to post a couple of awesome numbers (40-inch vertical, 10-8 broad jump), but he didn't blow anyone away with his times. His 40 (4.65), 10-yard split (1.56) and 3-cone (7.08) were all solid, but unspectacular. I wondered what would happen if Mack managed to beat Jadeveon Clowney's slightly disappointing numbers, but that never happened. Still, Mack is pretty much locked in as a top-eight selection.



Trent Murphy, DE/OLB, Stanford
Trent Murphy may seem like an odd choice for a stock up, given that he ran a 4.86 40, but he posted one of the top 3-cone times at the event with a 6.78. Several teams, including the Patriots, put a ton of stock into the 3-cone drill, so that could help Murphy get drafted earlier than initially projected.

Kevin Pierre-Louis, LB, Boston College
Kevin Pierre-Louis made a name for himself at the Combine. He registered some awesome results, including his 40 (4.51), 10-yard split (1.53), 3-cone (6.92), vertical (39 inches) and broad jump (10-8). He also posted 28 reps of 225 pounds. All of those numbers wouldn't have meant much to any non-undead owners by themselves, but Pierre-Louis also thrived in the drills, as his 40 speed seemed to translate into what he was doing on the field.

Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State
Ryan Shazier didn't run the 40 because he tweaked his hamstring, but some of his others numbers are worth noting. He had a ridiculous 42-inch vertical and a broad jump of 10-10. He also registered a solid 6.91 3-cone time. Shazier was projected to run a 4.4, so it's a shame he couldn't participate in the 40.



Telvin Smith, OLB, Florida State
Telvin Smith had a great 10-yard split (1.53) and a solid 40 time at 4.52, though it's not as great as it initially appears to be because he weighs 218 pounds. However, the important thing is that Smith excelled in the drills. He was moving around like a safety.

Jordan Tripp, LB, Montana
Jordan Tripp made the most of his opportunity to compete with the big boys. He registered a quality 40 time (4.67) as well as a great 10-yard split of 1.58. His vertical (37.5), broad jump (10-0) and 3-cone (6.89) were all outstanding. He also looked like he belonged when doing the field drills. Tripp has a shot to be a third-round pick.
