National Football League scouting combine schedule 2018: Defensive backs workouts close out the combine

Ohio State defensive back Denzel Ward runs the 40 Yard Dash at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine on Monday

While Darnold is still the heavy favorite to be selected as the first overall pick by the Browns, the team is also in need of help at running back. According to Peter King of Monday Morning Quarterback, New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton has voiced that he believes the 21-year-old is the best running back prospect that he has seen in quite some time. Talking to scouts after the Senior Bowl, most projections for the UCF linebacker were fourth or fifth round, but a spot in the top 100 picks is now possible.

"Penn State's Saquon Barkley is the draft's best player and gives the Browns an instant-impact offensive weapon who will fit perfectly behind an already solid offensive line". "The 6-foot-5, 247-pound tight end ran the 40 in 4.54 and had a vertical of 41.5 inches and a 10'9" broad jump.

Denzel Ward ran a 4.32-second 40-yard dash, Josh Jackson eased concerns about his speed with a 4.49 and Jaire Alexander had a great workout. Each of the top QBs in this class come with their own unique question marks, so taking a shot on Mayfield, who could change the culture in Cleveland from Day 1 if given the opportunity, isn't a bad idea.

Although the 2018 NFL Draft class lacks a Julio Jones or A.J. Green type of wideout, St.

With the top selection, the Browns have their pick of this year's quarterbacks. Yes, he was expected to run fast, but hype creates pressure on top prospects to perform up to expectations.

Tulane defensive end Ade Aruna, who played basketball at Central Park Christian in Birmingham before taking up football at an in prep school, had the best broad jump among the defensive linemen at 128 inches. His stock is on the rise after an impressive Combine where he measured in at 6-feet tall and clocked a time of 4.42 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

The on-field portion of the National Football League combine wraps up Monday, but the defensive linemen have already had their opportunity to compete in a variety of drills.

Following the same model, the Browns' current collection of draft assets represents the third-most draft capital dating back to 1970, with only the 1991 Dallas Cowboys and 1982 New England Patriots having possessed more.
