Bears had meeting with Ohio State CB Denzel Ward at NFL Combine

Currently, the Giants have the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and some think they are sitting in a really good spot with that pick given all of the options available to them.

When people ask me why I watch the draft or follow the combine I have no answer.

Edmunds' tape and workouts solidify him as a top player in this draft class. Team needs will determine how the draft plays out, but any team that passes on Edmunds could be missing out on a potential difference maker. On top of that, there's the 40 time of Shaquem Griffin, the weird world of Orlando Brown and whatever forces players to leave Miami early and then bomb the combine. Tim Tebow only wanted to play quarterback, too.

The annual Scouting Combine is often regarded as the first true mark of the NFL offseason - a chance for representatives from each of the league's 32 clubs to get an up-close look at some of the top draft prospects.

20-yard shuttle run: Defensive back Tony Brown (Alabama), 4.11 seconds; wide receiver Robert Foster (Alabama), 4.20; defensive back Siran Neal (Eufaula, Jacksonville State), 4.28.

Beyond that dominant duo is a quintet of players who showed out and vastly improved their draft stock.

The day also included NFL Network's Rich Eisen running the 40-yard dash (in a suit and tie) and raising funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Once again, the 2018 NFL Draft starts with the Cleveland Browns on the clock. His 40-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump are off the charts for a man 215 pounds. Chubb may have risen to a high second round pick after his Combine performance. At 6-2 and 252 pounds with 33-inch arms, Landry ran a 4.64 40-yard dash with a 1.58 10-yard split, 6.88 three-cone and 36-inch vertical. Ward likely cemented his status as a top-15 pick, but the Lions could have a shot at Jackson in the first or second round, and Nickerson can likely be had with a value pick late due to his slight frame. 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.

Tied for the fastest 40-time at the NFL Combine, Nickerson's 4.32 40-time reminded NFL scouts that he has the burst to match his vertical physicality and ball skills on film.
