NFL Combine Rumors by Tony Pauline



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


2014 NFL Combine: Stock Report - Offensive Linemen

Joel Bitonio, OT/G, Nevada
Joel Bitonio had one of the better 10-yard splits for all of the offensive linemen, posting a 1.68. He then performed well in the field drills. Also, Bitonio's arms measured in at 33 7/8 inches, so there's a chance he could play tackle in the NFL. I think he'll end up being a guard at the next level, but this type of positional flexibility definitely helps him.

Cameron Fleming, OT, Stanford
Cameron Fleming didn't time well, but that was no surprise. No one cares if a 325-pound lineman runs slowly. The important thing is that Fleming drew a ton of buzz in Indianapolis. Tony Pauline wrote the following on the NFL Combine Rumors page: "As posted on Twitter earlier, scouts have mentioned Stanford tackle Cameron Fleming as the offensive lineman people are sleeping on. He's been mentioned as a potential top 45 choice the past few days. Most scouts have Fleming staying put at the right tackle spot he lined up at with the Cardinal."



Seantrel Henderson, OT, Miami
There was no doubt Seantrel Henderson was going to thrive at the Combine. At 6-7, 331, Henderson ran an official 5.04 40 with a 1.71 split. He also looked great in the field drills. However, all of this was expected. The most important part of Henderson's Combine was the interviews. Henderson had never lived up to expectations in Miami, so he had to convince front offices to take a chance on him. It's unknown how that went.

Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama
Cyrus Kouandjio was mediocre in the 40 and during the drills. And then, the news broke: Kouandjio failed multiple physicals at the Combine because of a faulty knee. The Alabama left tackle was considered a late first-round pick before his trip to Indianapolis. Now, he'll be lucky to be chosen on Day 2.

Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
Taylor Lewan had a mildly disappointing 2013 campaign, so he needed to rebound with a strong showing in Indianapolis. He did just that, beginning with an official 40 time of 4.87 and a great 1.64 10-yard split. He looked very athletic in the field drills, cementing his status as a top-20 pick.



Jake Matthews, WR, Texas A&M
Jake Matthews didn't have a bad Combine, but he lost ground to Greg Robinson and is now the No. 2 tackle in the 2014 NFL Draft. Matthews' arms were a disappointing 33 3/8 inches, prompting a few to absurdly suggest that he would have to play guard. He then posted just 24 reps of 225 compared to Robinson's 32. Matthews also wasn't as good in the 40 as Robinson. Matthews is still a top-11 selection, so this isn't a major stock down; he's just not going to be chosen before Robinson.

Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia
Morgan Moses was seen as a fringe first-rounder entering the Combine, but he didn't really help himself. He had an ugly 1.94 10-yard split despite weighing 314 pounds and then proceeded to look very ordinary in the drills. The only thing that helped Moses in Indianapolis was Cyrus Kouandjio's failed physical.

Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee
Antonio Richardson didn't stand out positively or negatively at the Combine, but he gets a stock down because of what Charles Davis said during the live broadcast. Davis suggested that Richardson may have to sit out his rookie season because of a knee injury. If this is true, Richardson could easily plummet into Day 3.



Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
How great was Greg Robinson's performance at the Combine? He drew some comparisons to Hall of Fame tackle Larry Allen. Robinson started the weekend by having his arms measuring in much longer than Jake Matthews. He then posted 32 reps on the bench, which is an impressive figure considering his 35-inch arms. Robinson capped it off with a ridiculous 4.92 official 40 at 332 pounds. He also looked great in the field work. At this point, it would be a major upset if Robinson weren't the first tackle off the board.

Xavier Su'a-Filo, G, UCLA
Xavier Su'a-Filo was the best pure guard at the Combine. He surprised many by running a 4.90 unofficially. That number eventually became 5.04 officially, but his solid 1.75 10-yard split stood. Su'a-Filo also thrived in the field work, looking very athletic. He helped his cause to be the first guard chosen in May.



Brandon Thomas, OT/G, Clemson
There was a belief that Brandon Thomas would have to play guard at the next level, but his arm length (34 3/4 inches) and athleticism could allow him to stay at tackle. Thomas ran an official 5.09, which is solid considering he's 6-3, 317. His 10-yard split was a quality 1.78. Thomas wasn't exceptional in the drills, but he was good enough to cement his status as a second-day selection.

David Yankey, G, Stanford
David Yankey entered Indianapolis slightly ahead of Xavier Su'a-Filo to be the first guard chosen, but he definitely lost ground. Yankey definitely didn't look nearly as athletic as Su'a-Filo in the drills. His times were also worse (5.48 40; 1.81 10-yard split).
