NFL Combine Rumors by Tony Pauline



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

Mike Davis, RB, South Carolina
Mike Davis needed a strong Combine after having a troubled 2014 campaign. Instead, the downward spiral continued. Davis’ 40 time wasn’t any good (4.61), and he followed that up by looking stiff and sluggish in the field drills. Davis, once a projected first-rounder, might have to hope just to make it into the second day at this point.

Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia
Todd Gurley wasn’t going to work out at the Combine because he’s recently removed from his knee injury. However, his trip to Indianapolis was still extremely important for him because of the medical check. According to reports, Gurley is ahead of his recovery schedule, and multiple teams are all happy with his progress. Gurley would be a top-10 selection if he were healthy – probably slotted No. 6 overall to the Jets – but he may still go in the top half of the opening round.



David Johnson, RB, Northern Iowa
David Johnson had an excellent Senior Bowl, and he continued his positive momentum in Indianapolis with a strong showing at the Combine. Johnson ran a 4.50 in the 40-yard dash, and while that doesn’t exactly seem very impressive, it must be considered that he did so at 6-1, 224. Also, his 10-yard split (1.57) was the second-fastest behind Jeremy Langford at his position. Johnson then performed well in the field drills, particularly in terms of catching the football. He could sneak into Round 2.

Josh Robinson, RB, Mississippi State
Josh Robinson had one of the slowest 40 times of any running back, clocking in at 4.70 with a 1.66 split. His jumping numbers were poor as well, and he didn’t make up for it in the drills. He’ll likely be relegated to the third day of the draft.

T.J. Yeldon, RB, Alabama
Four running backs were seen as having a shot at the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft last summer. The quartet was Todd Gurley, Melvin Gordon, Mike Davis and T.J. Yeldon. While Gurley and Gordon have maintained their status, Davis and Yeldon have both slipped. Like Davis, Yeldon ran a poor 40; he was timed for a 4.61 with a 1.63 split. He was also stiff in the drills, and if all that wasn’t bad enough, his hands (9 inches) were among the smallest of the players at his position.
