Combine Results for Possible Detroit Lions Draft Picks

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

As you know, the NFL Combine took place from Friday until Tuesday. Below I listed the results of the players who have been mentioned as the possible first round draft pick of the Lions.

First, a brief introduction to the drills:
40-Yard Dash – Players sprint 40 yards. (Speed)
Bench Press – Players bench 225 pounds as many times as they can. (Strength)
Vertical Jump – The Player’s vertical reach is measured. He then jumps off flat feet as high as he can. The difference between his reach and the height of the flag he touched is his vertical jump. (Lower Body Explosion)
Broad Jump – Players start out and explode and jump as far as they can. (Lower Body Strength)
Three-cone Drill – Three cones are set in a L-shape. He starts and runs to the first cone that is 5 yards away and comes back to starting point. He then runs around the second cone and weaves around the last cone (high point of the L). Next, he goes around the second cone again and back to the starting line. (Ability to change direction at high speeds)

Let’s get to the prospects:

Nate Solder (Colorado)
40-Yard Dash – 5.05
Bench Press – 21
Vertical Jump – 32.0″
Three-cone Drill – 7.44

    A lot of People Seem to have a Problem with Akeem Ayers.
    And I Dont Get it? Yes he is a little on the Slow side, However, besides that the Rook seems to have all the Qualities that we Need for an OLBer.
    Granted, I am Not sure about Ayers Either when I stop to think about the Best Talent there at the 13th Pick.
    and I like taking the Most Talented Player at Whatever Position,Seeing how it has worked out for us Allready.
    I have to say that I would Love to get Von Miller However I believe that he will be “Long Gone” By the Time that we Make our Pick.
    And I like Justin Houston Also and am not sure if I like him even more than Ayers.
    Aldon Smith out of Missouri Had My eyebrowse Raising just a bit also. I know that he had surgery not long ago However a Lot of guy’s have injuries, It is just if he is Injury Prone or not? Otherwise, He looks like a beast.
    and he did’nt have the Fastest 40 time either.

    LOL, You can’t use the Name of States on this site? Or did I spell it with a Small Case letter with the first letter in the word? (: LOL that is Funny.
    Anyway’s I like ALL of the CB’s you ave Listed, I’m a Little worried about Jimmy Smith and weather or not he is what they are saying he is or not?
    I like Aaron Williams too. However he is a little Light at 195 lbs. Like to see him at 200 or 205.
    This Cb class is Deep and I am wondering if the LIONS will pass on a Corner with the 13th Pick if they can’t get Patrick Peterson, Prince Amukamara,Jimmy Smith? Or Brandon Harris.
