We will be live blogging Sunday’s offensive skill players performing on the field
Quarterbacks Group 4
MarQueis Gray clocked the top time on the first go around at 4.69. Gray is considered a TE by NFL teams and that’s a solid time for TE at 6032 240 pounds
Colby Cameron outdoes Gray’s 40 time on the second trip with a 4.66. Cameron is an underrated athlete that will have to show improved arm strength, he was deadly accurate at La Tech.
Wide Receivers Group 4
Group 5 will be on the track next. Tavon Austin is up first. 4.25 for Austin. Blazed it. Just helped himself out while teammate Stedman Bailey ran a pedestrian 4.57.
Check out our Combine Headquarters for all the latest times and weigh-in info
Virginia Tech duo Marcus Davis (4.40) and Corey Fuller (4.38) is impressive. Didn’t think either would go that fast.
Goodwin is up. Torches the track at 4.25, ties with Tavon.
DeAndre Hopkins is battling for the number two receiver off the board. A couple of false starts. Runs 4.50…good time for him.
Nice time for Tavarres King (4.43)
Tavon Round 2 – 4.31. What a disappointment.
Stedman Bailey improves to 4.5 flat. I’m with Mayock on this kid. Good, smart receiver.
Josh Boyce of TCU is one to watch. Short but not small and proving he has the wheels. Two hand times of 4.38.
Goodwin back on the track. Focused…looks like a sprinter because he is. 4.29. Two sub-4.3 40’s.
4.41 for Justin Hunter on 2nd attempt. As expected, fast.

Quarterbacks and receivers on the field
Collin Klein looked robotic on first throw. It was painful to watch.
Landry Jones misses badly on what should be automatic.
Ball pops off Tyler Bray’s hand. Gets on the receiver quick.
This is basically warm up throws for the quarterbacks and should be gimmes.
Poor throw by Mike Glennon as the receiver had to stop to come back to the ball. Bray, as expected, is showcasing arm talent. Glennon underthrows another ball.
Stedman Bailey tracks one down and shows why I’m so high on this guy. Soon, I’ll be ready to make a bold statement about Bailey and his NFL future.
It’s gauntlet time for the receivers. One of my favorite drills despite lacking function.
Alec Lemon looked smooth catching the ball. Not surprising that’s his game. Possession guy.
Tavon and Stedman solid gauntlet.
Corey Fuller not helped by quarterbacks but couldn’t stay on the line. Three drops.
DeAndre Hopkins displays concentration and hands. Reasons he’ll be a top 25 receiver.
Stedman Bailey showing those hands. Clean catcher of the ball and a guy that a QB will trust on money downs in the NFL.
Better gauntlet from Josh Boyce on 2nd go around but fights the ball too much. Nice speed but hands are a worry.
Chris Harper is intriguing. Size and looks comfortable catching the ball. Former QB that will continue to get better with good coaching at the next level.
Glennon heating up as the day goes. Thought he struggled early but looks solid as he warmed up. Top quarterback in this group.
QB and WR Group 5
9’11” on the broad for Terrance Williams. 9’6″ for Robert Woods and 10’2″ for Marquess Wilson.
Da’Rick Rogers exploded in the vertical. Don’t know the number but it’s over 40″
If you’re checking us out today, I have a gift for you…Play the Draft is the hottest fantasy game for NFL Draft fans. Mel Kiper has tweeted about the game and is currently playing. I play the game and it’s addicting. Today, we have access to the game in our NFL’s Future Nation league for free. Just click the link, sign up, and play the draft. The winner of my league will receive a 2013 subscription to NFL All-22. That’s huge if you don’t know about it, it’s coaches tape of NFL games, so you get to see how the coaches see the games.
QB group 5 will step to the line in the 40 yard dash in three minutes.
How many more sub 4.3’s will we see?
Nike’s 40 yard dash optimized cleat. Get you a pair.
Geno, Nassib, Wilson are up in the 40. Geno looked explosive in the broad jump, we’ll see what he runs…4.71 is my guess.
Official 40 times for group 4 will be in after group 5 completes their 40’s. Word is that official time on Marquise Goodwin may break Chris Johnson’s record.
Manuel 4.62, Nassib 4.84, 4.66 for Matt Scott. Manuel’s time at that size is impressive. Here goes Geno.
WOW 4.56 for Geno is really impressive number.
Tyler Wilson won’t make a living running but is solid in the pocket with movement skills. 4.96
4.60 for Geno Smith on the 2nd attempt.
WR Group 5 is up
Cordarrelle Patterson is a straight up freak. 4.37
Quinton Patton is an interesting guy. Intrigued by what his straight line speed is.
4.46 for Patton is really solid.
4.34 for Denard Robinson is a good time, as expected. Thought he didn’t get out well.
Ace Sanders better be able to move at 5070. 4.53 won’t help him.
Justin Hunter just leaped 11’4″ in broad jump.
Wowed by that time for Kenny Stills 4.34.
Markus Wheaton is my guy 4.34 is as expected. 1.52 10 yard split is incredible.
Those last three 40’s from Terrance Williams, Marquess Wilson, and Robert Woods will all help their draft stock. Phenomenal 10 yard splits.
Patterson’s second attempt was a poor start. 4.40 is still a freakish number at that size.
Impressive times for Rodney Smith. He’s a big target that lacked elite production. 4.44 is really solid.
4.28 for KennyStills. Wow…I thought his first run was good.
Ryan Swope just went sub-4.4 with a 4.38.
Marquess Wilson’s added weight looks good on him and should help him on draft day.
The times are all up for all receivers and quarterbacks…Once we get official numbers they will change but here’s the hand times with 10 yard splits. http://nflsfuture.com/nfl-scouting-combine-headquarters/
Geno to Robert Woods. Woods is showing today that he may be healthy and ready to get into the backend of round one. Keenan Allen you listening. Watch your back.
Markus Wheaton tracks the ball as well as anyone in the draft. Saw it in that drill.
Updated WR 40 times with official times for the entire group. http://nflsfuture.com/nfl-scouting-combine-headquarters/ Ryan Swope the big winner of the official times. Tavon’s time down to 4.34.
Robert Woods helping himself today. Looks the part of a natural hands catcher.
