2015 NFL Combine Results: Defensive Backs

New, comments

I've published the results from today's defensive backs workouts as well as discussed some of the standouts. Cornerback is a strong need for our New Orleans Saints.

Cornerback is a definite need for the Saints and will have to be filled either in free agency or in the draft. Below you can view the complete results from the DBs at the Scouting Combine.

While the 40 time is not really as important for DEs, DTs, and LBers, it is a important ranking for DBs as well as the WRs they will have to cover. Today' s fastest time came from my number 1 ranked cornerback, Trae Waynes of Michigan State. Trae had a 38" vertical, another important ranking for DBs, as well as posting 19 reps on the bench press. While the bench press might not be considered as important for a DB or WR, it is good to be strong at either position.

Other top CB rankings are:

Marcus Peters, 4.53 40 speed, 37.5 vertical, and 17 reps on the bench press.

Ronal Darby, also very fast with a 4.38 40 speed, and impressive 41.5 vertical, and an underwhelming  12 reps on the bench press.

Jalen Collins posted a 4.48 40 speed, a 36 vertical, but no bench press numbers. He also had a lot of drops during the workouts.

P.J Williams had slower 4.57 40 speed, an impressive 40" vertical, and a not so impressive 12 reps on the bench press.

Several DBs posted 40+ verticals, as well as a few 4.3+ speeds. Several DBs posted 20/20+ reps on the bench as well, with the leader being, Josh Shaw who did an impressive 26 reps.
