The last time it happened was 1995, when Penn State's Ki-Jana Carter was the first player selected. "When I wake up in the morning and brush my teeth, I look at myself in the mirror, I'm not going see anybody else in the mirror". I was also impressed with the athleticism some of the developmental offensive linemen exhibited. He told the NFL Network that he wanted to run the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds and reach 42 inches in the vertical jump.
His vertical jump was just 19 1/2 inches - nobody has ever gotten drafted with such a bad vertical jump - and his 6-foot-10 broad jump was off-the-charts bad, as well.
-Central Florida linebacker Shaquem Griffin amazed just about everybody surrounding the bench press on Saturday, pushing up 20 reps of 225 pounds with help from a prosthetic strapped to his left arm.
Barkley ran the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds Friday, the second-best time among all running backs at the combine.
It's rare that this type of player comes out in the draft and even rarer that the Giants are in a position to draft the best player.
60-yard shuttle: Gesicki had the fastest time among the nine tight ends who tackled the long shuttle, finishing in 11.33 seconds - 0.1 seconds faster than Conklin. He won every prestigious honor and award possible for a defensive player while managing to pass former No. 1 pick Mario Williams as the school's all-time sack leader.

Here's our stock watch of the wide receiver class based on their workouts at the Combine.
Though the Broncos hold the No. 5 pick in the draft, they still interviewed Barkley.
The most impressive performance of the combine so far has been Penn State running back #Saquon Barkley.
