Will Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa still be the second best quarterback in this draft even if he does not workout at the 2020 NFL Combine?

Quarterbacks Combine Recap: Neither Joe Burrow or Tua Tagovaloa threw at the 2020 NFL Combine. This was the first time in a while where the top two quarterbacks opted not to throw at the NFL Combine. Joe Burrow threw to LSU teammate Stephen Sullivan in the Gaunlet Drill.


Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert and Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm did everything in their power to validate why I have first round grades on them. Both quarterbacks look like first round picks even though both are a notch below Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovaloa. Fromm is not a Pro Bowler, but will be a good starter. He overthrew a pass at the NFL Combine so I do not believe his lack of arm strength is an issue. He underthrew another pass late in the combine after dominating in drills where he showcased his short and medium accuracy.


Jacob Eason has a great arm. His deep ball accuracy was inconsistent at the combine even though he has the arm to make the deep throws. Fromm interviewed well while Eason interviewed poorly. There may be some maturity issues with Eason since most of the Senior Bowl quarterbacks interviewed well. Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa also interviewed exceptionally well despite not throwing.


Kevin Davidson out of Princeton intrigued me. I had my eye on him at the Shrine Game. Princeton's quarterback brought homework at the 2020 NFL Combine. Deep ball accuracy was a huge issue with Davidson.


Jordan Love showed he had the short accuracy, medium accuracy, and deep accuracy. Love completed some deep balls at the end of the 2020 NFL Combine. I said on an earlier podcast that if Love could correct his deep ball accuracy he could enter the first round conversation with Justin Herbert and Jake Fromm.


Jordan Love showcased delivery on his throws, his quick release, and interviews have been so good that a team may overlook that. Also he interviewed well in Mobile when we recorded his press conference.


My dark horse quarterback is Jake Luton out of Oregon State. He interviewed with New England. I feel like his deep ball accuracy is better on tape and at the 2020 NFL Combine than Jordan Love.


Wide Receiver Combine Results



Jerry Jeudy headlines a very strong and very deep wide receiver group. Jeudy is the only receiver I would spend a top 5 pick on.

Wide Receivers Combine Recap: The group 1 receivers had up and down performances. Guys who struggled in Mobile did well with their 40 times at the 2020 NFL Combine. Same could be said with guys who did good in Mobile struggling with their 40 times. It's a deep receiver class, but Pro Days will really matter now more than ever.


Tee Higgins and K.J. Hamler did not workout at the 2020 NFL Combine. These quarterbacks will workout at their Pro Days.


Justin Jefferson the LSU receiver I had a first round grade on and Notre Dame wide receiver Chase Claypool were the group 1 winners at wide receiver.


Antonio Gandy-Golden struggled with his 40-time. He caught everything else in drills so he should have a chance to do well.


Jerry Jeudy and CeeDee Lamb dominated in the second group. Both wide receivers look like blue chip talents.


Lots of receivers in group 2 did well in terms of running 40 times. Laviska Shenault Jr. should still be a first round pick.


Denzel Mims and James Proche built on their momentum in Mobile. Both receivers should still be day 2 picks.


Henry Ruggs III ran a 4.27 40-time. He did not break John Ross's 40-time.


This is the deepest receiver class that I have seen in quite some time. Every team should draft a receiver in rounds 1-7. That is how deep this class is at wide receiver.


Tight End Combine Results




Cole Kmet headlines this tight end class. Notre Dame's tight end is a special tight end and maybe the only tight end with a shot at cracking the first round.

Tight Ends Combine Recap: Heading into the 2020 NFL Combine, my top four tight ends were Cole Kmet out of Notre Dame, Albert Okwuebunam out of Missouri, Brycen Hopkins out of Purdue, and John Mackey Award Winner Harrison Bryant out of Florida Atlantic. Those four tight ends were flawless at the 2020 NFL Combine.


Cole Kmet was my top ranked tight end. He still is just based on his tape alone and what he did at the 2020 NFL Combine today. Albert Okwuebunam ran a 4.49 40-time at the 2020 NFL Combine posting the third fastest time for a tight end.


You cannot fault a team for taking Cole Kmet or Albert Okwuebunam in the first round. Both tight ends were that good. Hopkins and Bryant built on their momentum from the 2020 Senior Bowl as both senior tight ends have been consistent since day 2 of the 2020 Senior Bowl practices.


Stanford tight end Colby Parkinson really made a name for himself. Parkinson dominated in every drill except the goal line tight end drill which was a brand new drill they added. They also added a drill where you have to leverage a slide by blocking.


Other guys like Hunter Bryant and Josiah Degura showed why they could be good tight ends for depth on day 3 of the 2020 NFL Draft. Thaddeus Moss did not work out at the 2020 NFL Combine due to a bone injury and the son of Randy Moss will also need bone surgery which will take 6-8 weeks.


This tight end group is a good group. Personally, I think it may be a better group than the 2019 tight end group that many hyped up.
