NFL Combine 2020 tracker: Measurements, results of the best individual performances from Indianapolis


This week, 337 players from 101 schools are descending upon Indianapolis for the 2020 NFL Combine. Each of these players will look to improve their draft stock while possibly finding their future NFL team in the process.

On Thursday, 20 tight ends, 17 quarterbacks and 55 receivers will take part in on-field drills. On Friday, a dozen special teams players, 30 running backs and 52 offensive linemen will participate in on-field drills. The 36 linebackers and 26 defensive linemen taking part in the combine will get their change at on-field work on Saturday. On Sunday, the final day of the draft, the 61 defensive backs partaking in the Combine will get their on-field work.

Throughout the week, we will be providing full updates of the top individual performances, by position, from the combine. Here’s a look at the positions, measurements and results we will be tracking throughout the week (so check back often for updates).

CBS Sports draft analyst Josh Edwards tabbed Aiyuk as a big winner here, as the small but speedy receiver put up an impressive wingspan. Aiyuk is looking to improve his draft stock after a groin injury held him out of the Senior Bowl.

Kmet, who has drawn comparisons to Rob Gronkowski, strengthened those comparisons with his solid combine measurements. Breeland, who looks a little small on film, also helped his draft stock after tipping the scales at over 250 pounds.

70 5/8″

The big winner here, according to CBS Sports draft analyst Josh Edwards, was Akers, who is looking to prove that he can be a three-down back at the next level. Another thing of note with regard to the running backs is Dobbins’ admitting that he is still not 100% after playing through a high ankle sprain during the Buckeyes’ Fiesta Bowl loss to Clemson.

Wirfs and Thomas, two of the highest rated linemen in the draft, did nothing to hurt their status after getting measured at the combine. One lineman that specifically raised his draft stock was Biadasz, who, according to CBS Sports’ draft analyst Chris Trapasso, has “one of the most physically impressive at over 6-3 and 314 pounds with a wingspan just under 80 inches.”

Trapasso stated that Davidson’s impressive measurements should help his odds at successfully moving from a DE to a DT at the next level. Trapasso also noted that Epenesa’s measurements were better than Chase Young’s and similar to the measurements Myles Garrett put up in 2017.
