Eight Texas A&M Aggies participated in the NFL Scouting Combine over the past few days, including four juniors who left school a year early to pursue their dream of playing in the pros. The annual spandexathon concluded today, so let’s take a look at the results for each player (rankings within their position group in parentheses).
- Erik McCoy ran the fasted 40 among offensive linemen at 4.89 seconds, which is also faster than many prominent quarterbacks. He may have ran his way into a late first/early second round draft stock.
- Otaro Alaka led all linebackers in the broad jump at 131 inches. This was also second among all players who weren’t a receiver or DB (three inches behind TCU edge rusher Ben Banogu).
- There’s been buzz around teams drafting Jace Sternberger in the second or third round. With top 10 performances in five of his seven events, he did nothing to dissuade teams from that evaluation.
- I know Trayveon Williams is small, but I refuse to believe he is two inches shorter than Kyler Murray.
- To nobody’s surprise, Daylon Mack excelled at the bench press (fifth among defensive linemen) but not at the vertical and broad jumps (23rd in each).
