How did D.K. Metcalf do at the NFL Combine?

How did D.K. Metcalf do at the NFL Combine?

The NFL Scouting Combine reportedly got personal with a draft prospect on Sunday. Following his historic 40-yard dash time, he could be a lock for the Top 10 of April's selection process.

"In terms of drills that relate to the receiver position, Metcalf put together a 40.5 inch vertical leap (which is better than Odell Beckham Jr's combine number), a 11'2" broad jump (which is more than DeSean Jackson's 10′ combine mark) and an insane 4.33 second time in the 40 yard dash.

Ole Miss receiver D.K. Metcalf shattered the high expectations set for him by his viral gym photo, sending his 6-foot-3, 228-pound frame hurtling 40 yards down the sidelines at Lucas Oil Stadium in 4.33 seconds (unofficially).

Sweat met with the Dolphins earlier this week at the combine, where he briefly met new coach Brian Flores and spoke mainly to defensive line coach Marion Hobby.

Woods claimed the title of fastest man at the combine with a 4.29 40-yard dash, and that alone earns a spot on this list.

That speed, paired with Sweat's size, is just unreal for a defensive lineman.

In what shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who followed him Mississippi State, Sweat entered the combine as one of the top edge rushers from this year's draft class, and was expected to put on quite a show in Indianapolis, assuming all went according to plan.

All three of the players mentioned above would add an even greater spark to a Broncos edge group that features Von Miller and Bradley Chubb. In that case, the Alabama defensive lineman is likely competing with Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa and Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen to be the No. 1 pick. For a comparison, 6'3 Julio Jones ran the 40 in 4.39 seconds, and Jones is considered one of the most gifted athletes in the National Football League today.

Both White and Bush had a tremendous day as each could be potential targets by the Broncos come draft night next month.
