NFL Prospects Dazzle at Scouting Combine
This is no rough draft. Prospective pros showed off their skills yesterday during the final day of the league’s annual showcase. Mississippi State’s Montez Sweat outshone the competition with the fastest 40-yard dash for a defensive lineman — 4.41 seconds — since 2006. And after going viral over his impressive physique and 1.9 percent body fat, Ole Miss wide receiver D.K. Metcalf didn’t disappoint with his 4.33-second sprint.
Who’ll be the first pick? Analysts increasingly expect the Arizona Cardinals to kick off the draft next month by choosing Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray.
