NFL Combine: QB/RB/WR

Busy morning
Quarterbacks:
- Matt Ryan ran a 4.88
- Brian Brohm ran a 4.75
- Chad Henne ran a 4.90
- Joe Flacco ran a 4.78
- Tashard Choice ran a 4.54

Wide Receivers:
- Mario Manningham: Bench pressed 16 times which is solid for a receiver his size, 32 inches vertical, ran pretty poor 40-yds dashes at 4.56 and 4.62. Not good for a player seen as a speed receiver
- Malcolm Kelly: Did not ran, did not bench press. What is he doing at the combine? Just taking up a spot someone else could have used I guess.
- DeSean Jackson: Ran a 4.31 40-yds dash.
- Dexter Jackson ran is the fastest WR at the combine at 4.27
- Early Doucet did not ran
- Andre Caldwell ran a 4.31
- Limas Sweed solidified his spot as the #1 receiver in the draft. At 6'3 and 215 lbs, he ran a 4.46. He compares well to fellow Longhorn Roy Williams. Somewhat bigger but just as fast.

Running backs:
- Rashard Mendenhall: Bench pressed 26 times, and ran an amazing 4.43 which is jaw dropping given his size. Again that guy is a beast.
- The other beast, Jonathan Stewart put up an impressive 40-time as well with a 4.44 while bench pressing 28 times. Not a surprise given his huge guns.
- Mike Hart ran a 4.67, bench pressed 23 times. Not great but as expected, he is a pure football player, not a guy with great measurables. He will be a great pickup at the end of the first day or on the second day of the draft.
- Darren McFadden showed his explosiveness with a 10'8 broad jump which is one inch more than Adrian Peterson did last year. He also ran a jaw dropping 4.27 and had a 33 inch vertical
- Fellow Arkansas product Felix Jones ran a 4.44
- Longhorn Jaamaal Charles ran a 4.36
