NFL Combine Rumors by Tony Pauline



This is the 2015 NFL Combine Stock Report for the linebackers. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

Stephone Anthony, ILB, Clemson
Stephone Anthony had a solid showing at the Senior Bowl, and he continued his positive momentum at the NFL Combine. He ran a 4.56 40 with a 1.57 10-yard split despite weighing in at 6-3, 243 pounds. He also had a quality 3-cone time (7.07), posted a 37-inch vertical, and showed enough athleticism in the field drills for teams to consider him to be a three-down linebacker. Tony Pauline noted in the NFL Combine Rumors page that the Packers have taken a liking to Anthony.

Paul Dawson, LB, TCU
The TCU players ran poorly at the Combine. Paul Dawson was the worst offender, plodding a 4.93 40 with a slow 1.69 10-yard split. He also barely showed any athleticism in the jumps, notching a 28-inch vertical and a 9-1 broad leap. Dawson looked stiff in the drills as well.



Alvin Dupree, DE/OLB, Kentucky
Alvin Dupree was expected to blow up the Combine, and while a couple of other edge rushers like Vic Beasley were more impressive, he did not disappoint. Dupree weighed in at 6-4, 269, but still managed to run an explosive 40, clocking in at 4.56 with a 1.60 10-yard split. He also posted a 42-inch vertical and a 10-6 broad jump. Dupree could break into the top 10, but he could also fall just because there are so many blue-chip pass-rushers in this class.

Eric Kendricks, ILB, UCLA
This is a weak class for inside linebackers. Eric Kendricks was seen as the only sure-fire first-round pick heading into the NFL Combine, and that’s still the case. Kendricks helped himself in Indianapolis. He erased any questions about his speed with a 4.61 in the 40 (1.64 split) and also posted a 10-4 broad jump and a 38-inch vertical. He was solid in the drills overall, and he has a shot at sneaking into the top 20.



Hau’Oli Kikaha, DE/OLB, Washington
Hau’Oli Kikaha struggled in Indianapolis, to put it kindly. He didn’t bother to run the 40 because of his weight gain. He then tried to participate in the field drills, but he was extremely stiff. Kikaha looked like a late-round prospect, at best.

Denzel Perryman, ILB, Miami
Denzel Perryman was seen as a fringe first-round prospect heading into the NFL Combine. He could have sneaked into the opening frame with a strong showing in Indianapolis, but he didn’t have one. Perryman posted a 4.78 40 with a 1.68 10-yard split, and his jumping numbers (32-inch vertical, 9-5 broad) weren’t very good. His drill work wasn’t pretty either. Perryman will likely be chosen in the second round.

Tony Washington, DE/OLB, Oregon
Tony Washington, a potential fourth-round prospect prior to the NFL Combine, didn’t look very good. His athleticism was lacking, as he ran a 4.99 40 with a 1.75 10-yard split. He also had a 32.5-inch vertical and a 9-2 broad jump, both of which were among the worst figures of players at his position.
