Day 3 Combine Recap – Denver Broncos

Official Denver Broncos Reporter

By Julie Dixon @ABroncoNole

March 3, 2017. Today, the running backs and offensive line ran, and did, agility drills. TheĀ Denver Broncos need a strong RB, so posting everyone’s times.

Brian Hill 4.54

Aaron Jones 4.56

Alvin Kamara 4.56

Chris Carson 4.58

Jamaal Williams 4.59

Wayne Gallman 4.60

Kareem Hunt 4.62

Donnel Pumphrey 4.48

Dalvin Cook 4.49

Jeremy McNichols 4.49

Marlon Mack 4.50

Leonard Fournette 4.51

Boom Williams 4.51

Elijah McGuire 4.53

T.J. Logan 4.37

Joe Williams 4.41

Tarik Cohen 4.42

De’Angelo Henderson 4.48

Christian McCaffrey 4.48

The next two positions we will target in the draft are tight end and OL.

Denver either have scheduled or already met with the following tight ends:

Drake Eric Saubert

Clemson Jordan Leggett

VT Bucky Hodges

Miami David Njoku

Clemson OJ Howard

Mississippi Evan Engram

South Alabama Gerald Everett

And can’t confirm, Jake Butt.

Added to that list is wide receivers:

North Carolina Ryan Switzer

Washington Fred Ross

As reported yesterday, these OL were interviewed by Denver:

Forrest Lamp, Cam Robinson, Taylor Moton, Bolles, Julie’n Davenport, Dan Feeney, Zach Banner, and Isaac Asiata

I didn’t list run times for OL because it’s kind of silly to care how high a center can jump or how fast a 300lb right tackle can run a 40. What the agility test did show is the positions some of these players have the skills for. Taylor Moton proved he has the movement to be a RT. That will raise his draft stock. When the combine is over, I’ll do a full recap of the players I like and all their vitals.

Some notes: RB D’Onta Freeman has a stress fracture in his foot and didn’t run. Christian McCaffrey showed off his physical prowess reminiscent of his father, Eddie Mac. He’s going to be a special slot receiver. Combined with his slight and weaker upper body strength (as evidenced by 10 reps on the bench) and struggles running between the tackles, he won’t be a number one back, but will be a change of pace guy teams can use in addition to his slot receptions. He’s an exciting guy.

Alabama’s linebacker Rueben Foster was sent home from the combine for a heated argument with a hospital worker employed by one of the teams at the combine. This may be to his advantage since dropping down the board means better teams are there. Like Denver, who has shown in the past that problem children aren’t an issue.

There is only so much time in the day, so look for more WRs to be interviewed tomorrow. Also, these players will have Pro Days. This gives teams another chance to interview them, if they didn’t get a chance this week. Don’t assume, if a player you want doesn’t make the interview list, he’s not being assessed. Just like an interview doesn’t mean they draft that player.
