Quarterbacks take center stage at 2018 NFL Scouting Combine


Although there is plenty of action left in the 2018 NFL Combine, the running backs chosen to participate in the events in Indianapolis will get an early start on their weekend as they concluded all off-field and on-field activities Friday afternoon. While most teams already have a grade on a majority of these players, the combine is a way to put more eyes on yourself.

With interior linemen and running back being team needs for the Bills organization, there should have been many Bills fans watching. While running the 40-yard dash, Jones appeared to come up lame - later having a confirmed hamstring injury.

Things only got worse Friday for the son of former Browns and Ravens right tackle Orlando Brown. First of all, Barkley bench-pressed 29 reps of 225 pounds.

It is time for the quarterbacks to let their skills do the talking.

The poor performances did not stop there, he ran a ploddingly slow 5.86 secs in the 40-yard dash, per NFL.com. We don't know how meetings went, but Brown did get yelled at by coaches during on-field workouts for 'loafing'. According to NFL.com research, there have only been 4 players since 2003 to post slower times.

On Thursday, Barkley, who measured 6-feet, 233 pounds, did 29 reps on the bench press (fellow running back Nick Chubb also recorded 29), which was better than all but five of the 36 offensive linemen who took part in bench this year. Mike Mayock described his 40-yard dash performance perfectly, calling it, "a historically bad time", as reported by Sporting News. As we saw here, Saquon Barkley did and #Orlando Brown did not.
