Mike Gesicki puts on athletic show at NFL Scouting Combine

As the 2018 NFL Draft nears, however, there are a number of Scouting Combine standouts who deserve to be mentioned and discussed.

Perhaps the most notable member of this group was Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward, who finished in 4.32 seconds despite a tweaked ankle that prevented him from participating in individual drills, per Kimberley Jones of

When people ask me why I watch the draft or follow the combine I have no answer.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller offered up the first seven-round mock draft of March following the workouts in Indianapolis, and he has the tailback going No. 1 overall to the Cleveland Browns. They're the top two players on my big board, as well as prototypes for their respective positions.

There was plenty to ponder as National Football League personnel and prospects departed Indianapolis following a 2018 Scouting Combine with lots of high points, as dozens of players exceeded expectations.

His 4.76-second 40-time, 7.24-second three-cone drill, 31 ½ inch vertical jump and 9-foot broad jump were all among the lowest out of all of the edge rushers at the Combine.

This would be a monumental blunder by the Browns, a team that consistently passes on early quarterbacks and consistently loses most (or all) of their games, yet consistently fails to realize the correlation.

Allen probably has the strongest arm of any quarterback coming into the draft since Jamarcus Russell.

He posted the fastest time of all safeties, continuing an impressive combine for Penn State players. And as far as the favorites are concerned, here are 10 players who stood out the most that Los Angeles should strongly monitor moving forward.

Lauletta showed off his athleticism and threw well during the workout portion of the Combine.

There was also a chance to see Rich Eisen complete his annual 40-yard dash. And unfortunately for the former Sooner, he turned in a historically poor performance, finishing last in the 40-yard dash (5.85), vertical (19.5 inches), broad jump (6-feet-10), short shuttle (5.38) and bench press (14). Payne also ripped off 27 reps on the bench, and moved very well in position drills.

James had a broad jump of 11 feet while hitting 40 inches on the vertical.
