Combine winners - Olsen, Hill, Shaw, Houston

The 2007 NFL combine is in the books and there are some clear winners during the week long event.

Ryan Kalil - Kalil shined during the drills and showed great agility for his size. He'll be the first center chosen and possibly a first round pick.

Greg Olsen - Blew away the tight end competition with a 4.5 40-yard dash and performed extremely well in the drills. He's the top TE now and a first round pick.

Drew Stanton - He made strong throws during drills and posted the fastest reported 40 time for QBs with a 4.73. The Michigan State standout may have helped his case to be the third quarterback off the board.

Adrian Peterson - He measured in at 6’2” and 218 pounds, and then posted a 10’7” broad jump, a 38.5’ vertical jump, and 4.40 40-time.

Calvin Johnson - After weighing in at 6'5" and 239 pounds, Johnson wowed with a 4.35 40-yard dash. He's the best player in the draft and maybe the best receiving prospect ever.

Brian Leonard - The 6'2" - 226 lbs fullback, who wants to play halfback, showed speed, power, and athleticism. He ran a 4.49 40-time and put up 28 reps of the 225 bench. He'll be an impact player no matter what position he plays at the next level.

Jason Hill - Put up a 4.32 40-time, the second best time of anyone at the combine. Not bad for guy who's main weakness was supposed to be his speed. The WR group is deep, but Hill should be a second rounder at worst.

Gaines Adams - Excelled during drills - three-cone (7.17), vertical jump (35”), shuttle (4.36), broad jump (9’11”), and 40-yard dash (4.64) were all among the top at his position. He's a top 10 pick.

Tim Shaw - Was more impressive then former teammate Paul Posluszny. Showed great speed (4.51 40-time) and strength (26 reps) .

Adam Carriker - His stock was already hot after a big Senior Bowl week. Now it is even hotter after an impressive performance at the combine. His shuttle time of 4.18 at almost 300 pounds is nothing short of amazing. The 49ers at pick 11 are showing a lot of interest.

Zak DeOssie - Ivy League invite from Brown helped his stock in a big way. He weighed in at 6’4”, 250 pounds and ran a 4.53 40 to go with 26 reps.

Chris Houston - Ran a DB best 4.32 40-yard dash, a 4.12 20-yard shuttle, and a 10’2” broad jump. Add in his 27 reps at 225 on Monday, and Houston helped himself in a big way during the combine.

Laron Landry - Already a high first round pick, he ran a 4.35 40-time to nail down a probable top ten spot in the draft.
