Over 200 players came to the Scout.com Combine at Citrus College. Players tested in the 40 yard dash, shuttle, l-cone, vertical jump, and standing broad jump. There was also a full hour and a half of one on ones, but for now, here is a look at the testing results from the Scout.com Combine.
There was a slight breeze during the day, but that didn't stop the fact that there were some unreal performances including Everson Griffen of Arizona.
At 6-3.5 and 264 pounds, Griffen ran a 4.46 forty with the wind at his back. How strong was the wind, not strong enough, he posted a 4.60 running into the wind. Split the difference and call it a 4.53, and one is still talking about Vernon Davis/Ben Watson type of athletic ability at a combine.
Determined to prove that he was more than just a combine freak, Griffen laid waste to the competition during the one on one portions of the Scout.com Combine.
Griffen, who UCLA is recruiting aggressively and have a very good shot at getting, was named the combine MVP.
On the same level of impressive was the performance by UCLA-committed quarterback Chris Forcier. The quarterback, who measured at 6-3 and weighed 178, clocked a blazing 4.44 forty, while jumping 10 feet in the broad jump, and running the day's best in both the 20-yard shuttle (3.97) and the L-cone drill (6.89), while also jumping 33 inches in the vertical jump.
To put it in perspective, there have been very, very few quarterbacks who have ever run a sub-4.5 40-yard dash in any spring camp or combine. And you could certainly count the quarterbacks on one hand who have also clocked sub 4-second 20-yard shuttles and sub 7-second L-cone drill. These are wide receiver-type numbers, not those usually associated with quarterbacks. Many observers asserted that it was the most impressive athletic performance by any quarterback ever in a camp or combine.
Griffen and Forcier were not the only impressive performers on Sunday, though; take a look at
