5 Combine Names to Know
Could be household names in a few days
As our coverage of the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine starts today, I wanted to give you a list of guys I am very high on and am excited to see work out this weekend in Indianapolis. These are NOT the best dudes there, but they are guys I want to see compete and improve their stock.
Nasir Adderley S Deleware
Nasir Adderley will be the name we’re all talking about when this weekend is all over with, I’m calling it now! I’m also putting my stamp of approval on Adderley as the best safety in this class. He reminds me a little bit of Tyrann Mathieu when he was at LSU. He has cornerback type instincts and ball skills and has started at corner but he’s also an incredible safety. I really love his instincts and ball skills, he’s a top 15 talent in my opinion.
Nick Brossette RB LSU
Brossette’s running style mirrors his character, patient. He sat behind guys like Leonard Fournette and Derrius Guice and waited for his turn, but once he got it, he took off! In 2018 Brossette rushed for over 1,000 yards and 14 rushing touchdowns. I think Brossette could be a dark horse in this running back class. He’s been looked over before, but I wouldn’t want to be the team that made that mistake. He’s a tough kid, I like him to make a name for himself in Indy.
Devin Singletary RB FAU
You would be hard pressed to find a more productive running back in this class than Devin Singletary. In three years at FAU he amassed 4,287 rushing yards and 66 rushing touchdowns. I want to see what his hands look like, if he can become a valuable asset in the passing game then all beats are off when it comes to his potential. Singletary might be the best RB in this class and the combine may clarify his status in the pecking order.
Anthony Johnson WR Buffalo
My day one WR1 and it’s not going to change. He was prolific, productive, and dominant in his time at Buffalo and I look for him to make a similar impact in the NFL. I’m excited to see what his vertical comes out to be, how fast he runs the 40, and I want to see that gauntlet drill. If he can put up a respectable 40 time and catch all the balls in the gauntlet, then he should come out of Indy a winner.
Terill Hanks LB New Mexico St.
Hanks is a four player with a good amount of production. The worrisome stat is that he finished with more assists than solo tackles. I’m more intrigued by how he will look in gym shorts. I think he will outperform maybe where he should get selected but I do see him making a name for himself on special teams. I like him as a raw prospect but I wish after four years he would be more of a finished product. I just think he will flash as an athlete and might make a name for hims
