Ladd McConkey, Georgia

Ladd McConkey had a great Senior Bowl week in Mobile, Alabama and continued to impress at the NFL Combine. The Georgia receiver ran a sub 4.4 40-yard dash and looked fantastic during the on-field drills portion. McConkey is now in play to be taken in round one of the NFL Draft and that boosts his value in dynasty. Needless to say, the NFL Combine Results were great for McConkey.

Adonai Mitchell, Texas

Everyone in Lucas Oil Stadium was impressed with Adonai Mitchell‘s testing numbers including the people who covered him at Texas.

Running a 4.34 40-yard dash at 6-2 and 205-pounds is going to get everyone pumped. Mitchell is looking like a lock for round one with his 97th-percentile Speed Score and 96th-percentile Burst Score. 

Xavier Worthy, Texas

The football world knew that Xavier Worthy was fast, and now everyone knows that he is the fastest. Worthy ran a 4.21 40 yard dash, breaking the record that was formerly held by John Ross. Given his production in college and the confirmed elite speed, Worthy projects to be a round one pick. 

Brenden Rice, USC

It has been a steady climb for the son of NFL legend Jerry Rice. Brenden Rice improved throughout his college career, impressed at the Senior Bowl, and put together a strong showing at the NFL Combine. He ran a 4.50 40-yard dash and measured in at 6-2 and 208-pounds. Rice also displayed a craftiness during the route drills that will translate at the NFL level given his size and speed. 


Troy Franklin, Oregon

Failing to reach expectations throughout the NFL Draft process is a major red flag for fantasy football. Troy Franklin came in shorter than expected, weighed in lighter than expected, ran slower than expected, and looked really bad in the on-field drills portion.

Questions continue to rise about how Franklin can win at the next level. Not great, Bob.

Tez Walker, UNC

“Never double count” is the number one rule for evaluating prospects. Tez Walker being fast isn’t enough for him to maintain his spot in the rookie WR hierarchy. Despite posting 88th-percentile scores across the board, Walker continued to display major holes in this game. He doesn’t appear to have good route running skills to be a difference maker at the next level. 


Brian Thomas, LSU

Much like Tez Walker, Brian Thomas didn’t prove a ton at the NFL Combine. Thomas being a big and fast player was known long before he showed up in Indianapolis. Unfortunately, he was only slightly more impressive of a route runner than Franklin and Walker which is not good.

Is it a bad thing to run a 4.33 40-yard dash and post a 99th-percentile Speed Score? Absolutely not, but he was landing spot dependent heading into the combine, and he is landing spot dependent leaving the combine. 

Keon Coleman, Florida State

Former Florida State wide receiver, Keon Coleman was the most mysterious prospect before the combine and that remains to be the fact now. Coleman is undoubtedly a beast, measuring in at 6-3 and 213-pounds. He disappointed with a 4.61 40-yard dash, but impressed with one of the fastest MPH recordings while running the gauntlet which was something that Puka Nacua did last year.
