Figure might be best to separate the combine from the draft thread.

NFL.com 2014 NFL Scouting Combine

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/9397/jace-amaro

Quote:
Texas Tech TE Jace Amaro measured 6-foot-5 3/8 and 265 pounds at Thursday's NFL Combine weigh-in.
It's perhaps notable that Rob Gronkowski is currently listed at 6-foot-6, 265, just a hair taller than Amaro. Very much in the first-round discussion, Amaro posted a ridiculous 106-1,352-12.8-7 receiving line as a junior before leaving early for the pros


http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/9355/marcus-martin

Quote:
USC C Marcus Martin measured 6-foot-3 3/8 and 320 pounds at Thursday's NFL Combine weigh-in.
He has 34-inch arms, giving Martin the ability to play either guard position in addition to pivot. Martin is considered the favorite to be the first college center selected in May's draft, and position versatility can only help his stock.


http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/9319/troy-niklas

Quote:
Notre Dame TE Troy Niklas measured 6-foot-6 1/2 and 270 pounds at Thursday's Combine weigh-in.
Per NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah, there is "buzz building" on Niklas as NFL teams have been able to study him more. Niklas was a bit of a surprise early entrant into the draft, but is regarded as one of this year's few "complete" tight ends, whereas the likes of Eric Ebron are "move" prospects


Going to be watching these three guys very closely. Niklas might be a solid target in the second round. 270lbs is a monster at te. He would allow Wright to be used in the slot.

Guys i am looking at

Xavier Su'a-Filo
Can Be a 1st Rounder with a solid Combine

Brandon Coleman
Sleeper pick in the 4th, if we miss out on Watkins Coleman could be a good Slot

What?? Are you talking about Brandon Coleman from Rutgers? The 6'6" 230lb slot, who runs a 4.7...

Robert Herron is a good guy to look at with our 4th rounder. I'm not sure if he will drop that far. But if he does, I really like his ability to play the slot for us.

Honestly, I would rather us target a WR in FA. Unless the plan is to go with Watkins.

I was thinking of Paul Richardson not Coleman, Richardson as a Early 2nd guy but Coleman could put VJax in the Slot and Williams to #1

6'4" 245lbs 4.4-40... should be fun to watch.

I like him as well. Snag him and add one of the top g's in the second round with Martin and Williams coming back. Use Wright in the slot.

I wouldn't trade too far back though. Jets, Phins, Cards, Packers, Cheifs 19-23. Move too far back and one of those teams might jump up.

Giants at 11 or take him at 7. Fine with me.

Garrapolo in round 2. Jackson jeffcoat round 4. Ah I'm reveling my mock.

Brought this cats name up when Lovie was hired but didn't seem to get a warm welcome.

B/R NFL Draft Expert Matt Miller has been hearing that Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley is the hot name so far in Indy.

To be honest the combine is fun to watch , but I still don't feel like the performance at the combine should make or break any prospect. I feel the interviews are important yes. And some of the strength tests for lineman. But I'm more of a tape guy. This just measures how fast you can run out of a track stance without pads. Throwing a football to wrs you've never connected with against air and no DBS. How high you can jump. Etc.

Good measure of athleticism but I never was a fan of "moving prospects up" based on combine performances.

Mosley will be a monster, but I think Foster played well enough to stay. I would like for us to allocate our 1st rounder towards a player we can use more who would have a bigger impact. Basically, the difference between Foster and Mosley might not be that much, whereas if we get a guy like Watkins his impact would be huge.

Was just gonna post this but you beat me to it.

I think concerns for Manziel and Bridgewater's size can calmb down now. Manziel is taller and heavier than Wilson and the same as Brees, though he may not look it. He is basically 6'0" with massive hands and a 207 college weight. As Chip Kelly said, if the QB is short look at his hands because that is the most important factor. I don't think Manziel can add too much more weight to his frame but I could definitely see him playing at 210 if not closer to 215 and that would be fine with me.

Bridgewater is heavier than most people would of thought at 214 college weight but I doubt be can put on much more weight. He has a small frame and still has some durability concerns but I think he could play at 220 and stay healthy.

I would love to get either one of these guys and think they could do big things for us. Hopefully we can get a good trade up and get one. I think Tedford could do wonders with either one of these QBs cuz they both work so hard and are so dedicated to football and have so much talent. That's what makes a player great. Plus if you want a better offense, upgrade the position that touches the ball every play.

A few more numbers of guys that have had their names mentioned around here:

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/9296/mike-evans

Quote:
Texas A&M WR Mike Evans measured 6-foot-4 3/4 and 231 pounds at Friday's NFL Combine weigh-in.

He's a fourth of an inch shorter than his college listing, but six pounds heavier. Drawing Vincent Jackson comparisons, Evans is expected to surprise when he runs his forty, perhaps clocking in the high 4.4s or low 4.5s. Still only 20 years old, Evans is virtual lock to be a top-15 selection in May's draft.


http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/9321/kelvin-benjamin

Quote:
Florida State WR Kelvin Benjamin measured 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine weigh-in.

He's actually six pounds heavier than his college listing. Benjamin's forty time will go a long way toward determining his draft slot in May. He averaged 18.7 yards per catch and scored 15 touchdowns as a 2013 redshirt sophomore.


240lbs wow. He really attacks the ball in the air as well. Same weight as Ebron but an inch taller. Wonder how well he would do in a Jimmy Graham type role.

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/9297/allen-robinson

Quote:
Penn State WR Allen Robinson measured 6-foot-2 5/8 and 220 pounds at Friday's Combine weigh-in.

His college listing was 6-foot-3, 210. As Rotoworld guest writer Jonathan Bales recently noted in his "WR Size & Red-Zone Efficiency" piece, weight can be a strong indicator as to touchdown scoring for receivers. So the plus size is a feather in the cap of Robinson.


6'3" 220... man these are some huge receivers Shocked

http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/9388/sammy-watkins

Quote:
Clemson WR Sammy Watkins measured 6-foot 3/4 and 211 pounds at Friday's NFL Combine weigh-in.

He was listed at 6-foot-1, 205 at Clemson.
