Everything Ravens Fans Need to Know From 2018 NFL Scouting Combine

Saquon Barkley's potential can't be quantified by NFL Combine results Saquon Barkley's potential can't be quantified by NFL Combine results

While his teammate Sony Michel looked more explosive in game action, Chubb proved to be the better testing athlete, beating Michel in the 40-yard-dash (4.52 sec), bench press (29 reps) and in the jumps (38.5-inch vertical jump and 10 ¾-inch broad jump).

Not only are there legitimate arguments to make about each of the Draft's top quarterbacks - Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen, and Josh Rosen - but a phenomenal Combine performance from running back Saquon Barkley has also pushed him back into top-two consideration. Sports Illustrated's Peter King now projects the linebacker will go in the late third or early fourth round of the draft - believing that Griffin could have an immediate impact on special teams regardless of where he ends up. In addition, he posted a solid 4.43 in the 40-yard dash, boosting his resume for man-to-man coverage. The Penn State star would become the first running back taken at No. 1 overall since Ki-Jana Carter was taken with the top pick in the 1995 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals.

There was also a chance to see Rich Eisen complete his annual 40-yard dash. The 6-foot-5 pass catcher shined during the on-field drills, running the 40-yard dash in 4.54 seconds and leaping 41.5 inches in the vertical.

"New general manager John Dorsey needs to completely overhaul a roster that won one game in the last two years, and the best way to do that is by selecting the best player overall at each selection", Miller writes in explaining the pick. And as far as the favorites are concerned, here are 10 players who stood out the most that Los Angeles should strongly monitor moving forward. With measurements, drills being timed and everything done under close scrutiny, the National Football League combine can mean quite a bit for some prospects.

James had a broad jump of 11 feet while hitting 40 inches on the vertical.

Broad jump: 135 inches by wide receiver Julio Jones (Foley, Alabama) in 2011. Eisen came in at 5.97 seconds, the second time in the 13 times he's run the 40 at the combine that he came in under 6 seconds. However, NFL teams are concerned about his "fit" at the next level and his athletic testing numbers won't help ease concerns. And McFadden managed only 4.67 on Monday, confirming the concerns many evaluators had about his straight-line speed.
