1.) Isaiah Simmons, LB, Clemson – A good friend of ours Joseph Potts trains Isaiah Simmons and his brother in Kansas and we have known about Isaiah for years. Isaiah today killed his pro day running a 4.39 forty yard dash as a linebacker. He had a great overall day but that forty was huge for him.

2.) Willie Gay Jr, LB, Mississippi State – If Isaiah Simmons was not at this Combine, people would be talking about Willie Gay Jr. Gay Jr. ran a 4.46 forty, led all linebackers with a 136 inch broad jump and a 39.5 inch vertical. Gay Jr. is one of the most freakish players at the Combine and he earned money today.

3.) Khalil Davis, DT, Nebraska – Both Khalil and his brother Carlos had a huge day at the Combine, but I have to give it up to the two of them. Khalil blazed a 4.75 forty yard dash at 308 pounds. There are some super talented players this year on the defensive and offensive line. Davis may not be the tallest player but man does he have athleticism.

4.) Alex Highsmith, LB, Charlotte – I have been a fan of his after watching him jump off the tape, but today he showed his athleticism. He was a top performer in the broad jump, the vertical and the forty yard dash. People do not want to talk about it but Highsmith maybe drafted higher than expected. He had a great workout.

5.) Derrek Tuszka, DL, North Dakota State – Not only is the small schooler productive, he is a freak. The 6040, 250 pound pass rusher finished with a 4.79 forty, a 6.87 3 cone drill which smoked every other defensive lineman and a solid performance in drills. Derrek made some money today, and I love to be able to write that for a small school player.
