USC OT Matt Kalil Leads Day 3 of the Combine with an Impressive Workout

OL & TE Workouts

Today on day 3 of the NFL Combine the OL and TE, USC OT Matt Kalil ran an unoffiicial impressive 4.99 40 time and looked great in the oline drills and put up 30 225lbs bench press reps. Kalil is poised to go in the top 3 of this draft, and will recieve an elite grade from me once my final grades are completed.

After Kalil, Stanford OG David DeCastro and Iowa OT Riley Reiff are the next top Offensive linemen. DeCastro ran a 5.43 40 which is just average, but excelled in position drills and also benched 34 reps. Reiff put up 23 reps which is just average, and looked solid in the drills and ran a 5.23 40. DeCastro looked like the elite OG prospect we all thought he was, and Reiff to me looked only average and sloppy.

Big OT prospects Mike Adams from Ohio State and Cordy Glenn from Georgia both had solid workouts today and look like 1st round picks. Glenn ran an impressive 5.15 40 at 345lbs, and looked okay on the field in some drills. Adams ran a 5.40 4o which isn’t too good, but looked better on the field in position drills and might be a top 20 pick while Glenn will be more in the 20-32 area.

Top Center prospect Peter Konz did not run, but put up 33 bench press reps and should see his stock somewhere in the 1st round once April comes around. Michael Brewster  from Ohio State ran a very solid 5.35 40 for a Center, but looked sloppy in drills and is a mid round prospect now. Late 1st round prospect Jonathan Martin  from Stanford did not participate in the bench press or drills because he was sick, and might be the 5th best OT behind Kalil, Reiff, Adams and Glenn. The fastest 40 time for a Offensive linemen came from Adam Gettis from Iowa, who will likely end up as a 6th round pick.

My top rated TE prospect Coby Fleener did not run at the combine because of an ankle injury, but benched 27 reps which tied with Clemson TE Dwayne Allen with the 2nd most for a TE. Allen only ran a 4.89 40 which is very disappointing, and might be a 3rd round prospect if he can’t run better at his pro day. Orson Charles from Georgia didn’t particpate today in the 40 and struggled in some drills as well, but put up the most bench press reps out of any TE with 35 and should have a lot of teams attention at his Pro Day in March.

Ladarius Green from Louisiana-Laffayette ran the 2nd best 4o time with a 4.53 40, and looks like a potential Aaron Hernandez type of pass catcher in the NFL. James Hanna from Oklahoma ran the fastest 40 with a 4.49 40, and might have helped his stock enough to get drafted. Michael Egnew from Missouri has looked very solid running a 4.62 40 and looking good in the drills, he will make a team very happy if he gets drafted in the 4th or 5th round.
