Ohio State DE Nick Bosa is fully recovered from a core muscle injury and surgery that kept him out most of the year, according to his father, and will perform in every drill.
“He’s 100%, has been for, I’d say, about eight weeks, as far as really getting over any tiny discomfort,” John Bosa said via Albert Breer. “He’s been training full go for close to eight weeks. And he’s ready to do it all at the combine.”
If Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray runs the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, his former coach Lincoln Riley expects it to be fast.
“Right when he transferred in from A&M and he was not in very good shape, probably the worst shape I’ve ever seen him in, we got him low 4.3s here,” Riley said via Albert Breer. “And that was, like I said, the worst shape I’ve seen him in.”
- Albert Breer also talked to scouts who said they expect Kentucky DE Josh Allen to perform well in drills at the Combine.
- Michigan DL Rashan Gary is reportedly expected to run a 40-yard dash in the 4.5s while weighing 280 pounds.
- Florida State DE Brian Burns has also reportedly put on weight and is expected to weigh in the mid-to-high 240s after playing this past season at 236 pounds.
- UMass WR Andy Isabella is expected to run fast as well. He beat Browns CB Denzel Ward in the 100 meters in the Ohio high school state track championship meet four years ago. Ward ran a 4.32 40 at the Combine last year.
- Ohio State CB Kendall Sheffield is expected to run as fast as Ward, per Breer’s sources.
- Ole Miss WR D.K. Metcalf is another possible workout warrior, as an executive told Breer Metcalf could weigh in at 235 pounds and run a sub-4.4 40. Missouri WR Emmanuel Hall is also expected to time well.
