National Football League scouting combine: Saquon Barkley is a superstar in workout drills

'Baker Mayfield is not Johnny Manziel' – Joel Klatt | The Herd

Well, if you want a victor from the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, you technically could list the San Francisco 49ers, who won their high-profile coin toss over the Oakland Raiders on Friday.

Another day. Another impressive showing from Penn State running back Saquon Barkley at the NFL Combine.

He followed it up Friday with even more wonderful numbers: a 41-inch vertical jump, and 4.41- and 4.42-second times (unofficial) in the 40-yard dash. So after a strong performance at the NFL Combine, here are seven teams that should strongly consider trading up for Barkley in the upcoming draft to help improve their backfield. Chubb was listed as seventh-best but with the show he put on at the Combine, his stock may rise as well. Brown only managed 14 reps on the 225-pound bench press.

Barrett was one of the fastest quarterbacks in his group during the 40-yard dash.

Players will run the 40-yard dash, participate in the broad and vertical jumps, shuttle runs, the three-cone drill and position-specific drills during today's workouts.

Before the prospects take the field, they undergo physical and mental tests.

"When are you ever going to watch Orlando Brown run 40 yards down the field?" quarterback Baker Mayfield asked Friday. Michel graded out on ESPN as the second-best running back prospect behind Saquon Barkley. His teammate, another highly touted offensive lineman Mike McGlinchey, also opted out of the drill, but that was known prior to Friday.

For perspective, Johnson had the same 41-inch vert.
