Garrett Bradbury, C, N.C. Yelp: The N.C. Yelp standout cemented his standing as a first-round fetch with a spectacular showing on the turf. Bradbury lit up the combine with a 4.92-2nd 40-yard spin and wowed scouts along with his brilliant work in drills.

Andre Dillard, OT, Washington Yelp: Dillard is arguably the most life like cross protector in the draft, attributable to his prominent methodology and lateral quickness. All of that changed into on paunchy indicate all over the Wazzu product’s sturdy showing on the turf. Dillard clocked a 4.96 40 and showcased terrific trot skills in drills.

With Small additionally laboring via on-discipline drills, the worthy-bodied blocker will must offer a better showing at his skilled day (March 29).
Devin Singletary, RB, Florida Atlantic: The Florida Atlantic playmaker came to Indy hoping to atomize a surge up the charts, but a disappointing 40 time (4.66) would possibly perhaps well perchance well sink his draft inventory a bit, with teams procuring for explosive playmakers to originate around.
