2018 NFL Combine: Day 3 Recap




Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Posted on: 3/4/2018.



Bradley Chubb didn't get a max grade like Myles Garrett. Most would agree he's the closest thing to a consolation prize and the hands down number one pass rusher in this draft.


Defensive Linemen Combine Results



Alabama has Daron Payne as their top defensive tackle. Last year they had the top defensive tackle in Jonathan Allen too.

Defensive Linemen Combine Recap: Bradley Chubb is in a league of his own as far as pass rushers off the edge go. I don't see Bradley Chubb getting past he Indianapolis colts at 3 now because they switched to a 4-3 defense. Chubb is expected to do more reps on the bench press than Myles Garrett.


Right now Da'Ron Payne is my top ranked defensive tackle. One guy expected to make a huge splash at the 2018 NFL Combine is Stanford defensive tackle Harrison Phillips. I think he could do so well that he actually pushes Payne for the top spot.


Bradley Chubb was the best defensive end today. He validated his status as the top 4-3 defensive end. I don't see him getting past Indianapolis. Chubb showcased elite rip and swim moves. Chubb dropped a pass in the coverage drill. He's great off the edge though. Chubb showcased the rip and swim moves. He's also showed the block shedding of a defensive tackle.


The other defensive end who may sneak into the first round outside of Bradley Chubb is Harold Landry. Landry can play 4-3 defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker on either side. I have a second round grade on him, but he did a great job running and dropping back into coverage. There is a huge drop off between Chubb and Landry. There is a big drop off between Landry and the next best defensive end too. My one concern with Landry is that he didn't correct his issues with rip and swim moves. There is a dmeand for 4-3 defensive ends so Landry may get pushed up because many had Landry ahead of Chubb heading into the preseason.


Josh Sweat is now my number three 4-3 defensive end behind Chubb and Landry. Some have a second round on Sweat. With Duke Ejiofor being injured and Justin Lawler not getting a combine invite still round out my top 5 4-3 defensive ends. The rest of thesee defensive ends look like backups.


Sam Hubbard struggled in coverage. I don't see Hubbard becoming a future starter.


Da'Ron Payne is still my top ranked defensive tackle. His big play ability in the 2018 College Football Playoff as well as his tape has me believing he's the top 4-3 defensive tackle in this draft.


Harrison Phillips did real good in the on the field drills. He's not as fast as Payne or Vea, but his technique is a lot more sound. I have him as my second best defensive tackle now.


Vita Vea got injured in the 40-yard dash and did not participate in the on the field drills. B.J. Hill out of North Carolina State is now my number four defensive tackle. He looked good in on the field drills and did enough to move ahead of Taven Bryan after what I saw today.


Maurice Hurst suffered a heart condition and got sent home. I think Hurst falls to the second round due to the competition and demand at the defensive tackle position this year.


It's a stronger defensive tackle class compared to the defensive end class when you look at the 4-3 defensive linemen in this draft. Not much changed from this combine with my defensive lineman.


Linebacker Combine Results



Roquan Smith is my top ranked linebacker in this draft. I think Denver may take him as early as fifth overall.

Linebackers Combine Recap: Roquan Smith and Tremaine Edmunds are the two linebackers that headline this class. There were 29 linebackers in 2017. The 2018 NFL Combine features 50 total linebackers with a lot more options with edge rushers that project to outside linebacker roles in the NFL as well.


Roquan Smith and Tremaine Edmunds solidified themselves as the top two middle linebackers in the draft. Rashaan Evans didn't compete in the 40 yard dash or bench press, but he dominated in the individual linebacker drills.


Leighton Vander Esch had a superb 2018 NFL Combine. He didn't just test well in the bench press and combine. He worked out and looked good in coverage while pass rushing off the edge. He's only a one year starter. He does not have first round tape. The thing is he keeps building momentum.


Pass rushers like Marcus Davenport, Arden Key, Uchenna Nwosu, Lorenzo Carter, and Shaquem Griffin had huge days. These guys are very good edge rushers in a 3-4 scheme. The guys who were sack artists like Hercules Mata'afa, Jeff Holland, and Ogbonnina Okornkwo were good in linebacker drills, but tested poorly in the 40-yard dash.


Marcus Davenport was dominant in coverage today. He had a big day and I'm potentially looking at going as early as 14 to Green Bay.


Malik Jefferson was inconsistent today. His instincts are still an issue and tht's not something smart teams will overlook. Josey Jewell is now Malik's biggest competition for Malik cause he could jump Malik and push him down to the third round.
