3 takeaways for Broncos from 2018 National Football League combine

08 March 2018

Notre Dame offensive lineman Quenton Nelson in action during the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium on March 2, 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Combine showcased a handful of players whose performances backed up the hype. He did exactly that.

If Sashi Brown were still in charge of the Browns, he might have turned the card in for the No. 1 pick right then and there. Both of those teams would love to draft a top quarterback. His lifting bests at Penn State are that of legend - the Combine drills don't perfectly exemplify the weight room dominance National Football League teams have seen first-hand in their offseason visits to the campus.

Shaquem Griffin, LB, Central Florida: Barkley made the biggest initial buzz, but Griffin won the weekend.

China to raise defense budget by 8.1% in 2018
The 6.5 percent goal is consistent with President Xi Jinping's promise to deliver a "moderately prosperous" society by 2020. Though China doesn't wish to be seen as a Russian ally, there is a renewed sense of big-power competition, Yue said.

Why he's a good fit for the Falcons: An athletic defensive tackle, who has upside and could certainly improve under the tutelage of Quinn and defensive line coach Bryant Young. His 5.85-second 40-yard dash was the fifth-slowest at the combine since 2003, and the four players behind him went undrafted. His 26 reps in the bench press also were a strong showing considering his 82-inch wingspan. However, the Browns may prefer to take a running back first, and the quarterback later, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. He really helped his draft stock. "Now you don't have to go overpay at the position, or draft and roll the dice".

Chubb had a good combine performance as well. Barkley could be a generational player, but a running back doesn't win games alone. He checks all the boxes physically and has no off-field issues. In the 2016 draft, the Cowboys took Ezekiel Elliott with the 4 overall pick. He ran the 40 in 4.58 seconds with a 10-yard split of 1.6 seconds. At 207 pounds, a respectable weight, the junior safety ran a 4.40 40-yard dash, a mark that only five safeties drafted in the last decade who weighed more than him have bested. Those numbers equal out to him being a tall, fast and an explosive jumper.

Measuring 6-foot-5 and 253 pounds, Edmunds torched the 40 in 4.54 seconds and looked extremely smooth in drills.

Ex-Trump Aide Would Rather Be Arrested Than Comply With Mueller Subpoena
That seems to directly contradict the exchange Nunberg had with CNN's Jake Tapper earlier Monday that set off the initial scrum. He then said he would reject a sweeping demand from Mueller for communications between him and top Trump advisers.

Two of the defensive backs that could be headed the Rams way include Colorado's Isaiah Oliver and Iowa's Joshua Jackson. An average quarterback is more valuable than an elite running back in 2018, and the Browns have passed on drafting that player in the last two drafts.

Lauletta showed off his athleticism and threw well during the workout portion of the Combine.

Bench press: Guard Braden Smith (Auburn), 35 repetitions; defensive lineman Da'Shawn Hand (Alabama), 28; defensive lineman Da'Ron Payne (Shades Valley, Alabama), 27. Is he a Round 1 pick coming out of it?

Draft projection: Round 6 or Round 7. Even his short shuttle, which generally exemplifies quickness, was among the top 10 at the position despite his status as one of the biggest backs in attendance. His 40-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump are off the charts for a man 215 pounds.
