Meet the WR who ‘helped himself more than anyone in the country’ with big NFL Combine, Senior Bo Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey wl

LSU’s D.J. Chark just keeps on impressing

INDIANAPOLIS — It’s been a heck of a 2018 for D.J. Chark.

The former LSU wide receiver rode the momentum he created with a stellar Senior Bowl into a breakout performance Saturday at the 2018 NFL Combine.

Chark clocked the fastest 40-yard dash of anyone through the first two days of on-field drills with an official time of 4.34 seconds. The 6-foot-3, 199-pounder showed off his athleticism in plenty of other ways, too, as he registered the best vertical leap among wide receivers (40 inches) and the fourth-best broad jump.

Chark also looked smooth during his position drills, something that’s become a trend since he arrived at the Se Mitchell and Ness Dan Fouts Los Angeles Chargers Vintage 1984 Throwback Football Jersey Cheap nior Bowl as a relatively  Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap unheralded prospect.

“In the postseason, when you look at what he did at the Senior Bowl and carrying that over to the combine, I think he’s helped himself more than any player in the country,” NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah said during the network’s broadcast of the annual scouting event. “You see the explosiveness, not just with him running, but you saw him jump. He tore that up as well.

“He put a lot of money in his pockets in Mobile and he put a little more money in his pockets today.”

Though he played for a big-name program, Chark was completely off the map until his junior season, when he emerged as a deep threat in LSU’s run-first offense. His senior year was by far his best, as he racked up 40 catches for 874 yards and three touchdowns. Five of his six career touchdown catches went for 35 yards or longer.

That kind of big-play production came out in a big way at the Senior Bowl, where he won Co-MVP after catching five passes for 160 yards and a touchdown. He also looked impressive as a core special teams player.

“I’ve played with a dominant mentality and they see that on film. I let them know that I’m willing to do special teams, things like that because Men’s 1985 Chicago Bears 34 Walter Payton Mitchell and Ness Authentic Throwback Navy Blue Jersey  it’s part of football and I want to make an impact on the team,” Chark said Friday. “I don’t want to go and just sit on the bench so if I have to get on the field I’m willing to do that. let them know that I’m a competitor and they’re going to get a guy that’s going to come and compete with everybody day in and day out.”

The Browns are looking to add competition to a wide receiver room that struggled from start to finish in 2017. Without namin Mitchell and Ness Dan Fouts Los Angeles Chargers Vintage 1984 Throwback Football Jersey Cheap g any names, general manager John Dorsey said Thursday he liked the depth of this year’s wide receiver class, particularly when it comes to the players he thinks could be available Day 2 and early Day 3.

A performance like Saturday’s could help Chark rise the ranks.

“There’s nothing catching me off guard,” Chark said. “I’m enjoying it. I love sitting in front of these receiver coaches and head coaches and offensive coordin Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap ators and talking football and getting a chance to tell them my story and finding a way to connect with these teams, it’s a great experience.”

NFL Insider John Clayt Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey on excited about Browns’ direction under John Dorsey, Hue Jackson

Cleveland expected to be active in free agency

INDIANAPOLIS — The  Men’s 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey scouting combine is the official kickoff of draft season in the NFL, but it is also the one place that brings everyone in the league together and signifies the true start of the NFL ye Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap ar. Every draft expert is in town, as are all of the top NFL Insiders.

We were lucky enough to have the Professor John Clayton join Cleveland Browns Daily this week to share his extreme optimism for the direction of the John Dorsey-Hue Jackson led organization.

Asked about the new-look front office, Clayton said, “I like it. I think it gets back to the basics of scouting … particularly with John Dorsey, a good solid football guy. I think they are lucky to get Eliot Wolf and (Alonzo) Highsmith. They come over from Green Bay … they have histories together. I think it’s a good pairing and I think it is gonna be a good group.”

Clayton was also excited about the fact the Browns have retained Jackson: “I think that he’s a good coach and it was an unfair situation he was in … plus one of the bonuses of keeping Hue, is you get to keep Gregg Williams and Gregg Williams is such a good coach.”

As for the focus of the Browns’ offseason improvement plan, Clayton said it starts with “working on the back end of the defense, the secondary.” He added that with $111 million in cap room, the Brow Men’s 1985 Chicago Bears 34 Walter Payton Mitchell and Ness Authentic Throwback Navy Blue Jersey ns will be active in free agency and “you figure they will go for a cornerback and so it’s a matter of which cornerback they go for. Will it be M Men’s 1994 Miami Dolphins 13 Dan Marino 75th Anniversary Aqua Authentic Throwback Jersey alcolm Butler, is it going to be … Trumaine Johnson because he is going to come in at $14 million and you’re not going to outbid them.”

Johnson could hit the market after being franchised the last two seasons by the Los Angeles Rams, who just acquired Marcus Peters in a trade with the Chiefs. Johnson is regarded by many as the top free agent cornerback available and played for Williams for multiple seasons with the Rams.

Clayton also expects the Browns to go after a free safety either in free agency, the draft or via trade because, “John Dorsey knows the value of a great free safety. He was there with Eric Berry (in Kansas City).”

Clayton said he does not expect Rams free safety Lamarcus Joyner to be available in free agency, but noted other prominent players around the league could become available in the coming weeks. In the draft, the consensus top defensive back, Minkah Fitzpatrick, is able to play both free safety and cornerback, making him incredibly attractive to the Browns.

Clayton said the combination of Dorsey and Jackson will be a successful one for the Browns. The Browns will clearly be on the right path if, “obviously settling the quarterback position, trying to upgrade the WR position, upgrading the spots on the defense, because again, the biggest thing is that if Gregg Williams can get this defense between 15th and 18th, that’s gonna be huge. If they can do that and get to five or six wins, I think that’s a huge jump.”

Edge rusher Bradley Chubb states his case to be N Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey o. 1 pick

Chubb: ‘I try to take Khalil Mac Men’s 1985 Chicago Bears 34 Walter Payton Mitchell and Ness Authentic Throwback Navy Blue Jersey k and Von Miller and put them into one person’

INDIANAPOLIS — Bradley Chubb, the N.C. State pass rusher who’s considered one of the best prospects here at the NFL Combine, didn’t shy away from that belief during his news conference with reporters Saturday afternoon.

“I try to take Khalil Mack a Mens 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey nd Von Miller and put them into one person,” Chubb said. “I feel like I do both of them pretty well. There’s a lot of room for improvement, of course.”

That, of course, is a heck of a statement that raised more than a few eyebrows during the session. Thus far, though, Chubb has walked the talk in Indianapolis as he makes his case to be a top-five pick in a few months. And while Chubb (6-foot-4, 270 pounds) shined Sunday morning in on-field workouts — he clocked a 4.66-second 40-yard dash and looked the part in defensive line drills — that well of confidence comes from knowing his body of work speaks for itself.

“I feel like I put it on tape for f Men’s 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey our years. Good film. I feel like I’m the best player. I’m not going to say one person’s better than me,” he said.

“There are a lot of great players. (Penn State running back) Saquon Barkley put up ridiculous numbers yesterday. (Wyoming quarterback) Josh Allen, (UCLA quarterback) Josh Rosen. All the quarterbacks you’re hearing about, lot of great players. I just feel like I’m up there at the top.”

Indeed, Chubb is among several top-shelf prospects the Browns could select with the first or fourth overall pick, potentially giving Cleveland’s young defense another talented edge rusher alongside Myles Garrett, the No. 1 pick last year.

Much like Garrett, Chubb was productive in college, amassing 25 sacks and 55 tackles for loss in three seasons at N.C. State, and should only bolster his draft stock at the combine. “I just want to show my athleticism out here,” he said. “That’s the main goal … Just show how everything on tape is actually who I am.”

In his top 50 prospects list, NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah ranked Chubb at No. 4, writing he “has ideal size, strength and instincts” and praised a “motor that never stops.”

“Chubb has a natural feel as a pass rusher,” Jeremiah continued, “and should be a double-digit sack artist very early in his career.”

Though steadfast in his belief he’s the draft’s best player, Chubb made clear his ultimate goal is Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap  simply to be drafted. Where or when doesn’t matter.

“It’s a life-long dream of mine. For me to be standing at this podium, getting these pictures taken, seeing on Instagram the past five years of my life,” he said with a wide smile. “I’m just like ‘I want to be right there.’ Just to be right here and just being even in consideration to getting drafted is a blessing. Whatever team takes me I’ll just be happy.”

5 things Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey we learned about the NFL Combine’s top QBs

Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Baker Mayfield, Lamar Jackson, Josh Rosen competing to be best QB in this year’s class

INDIANAPOLIS — Five things we learned about the five quarterbacks — Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson — many believe will be the first five selected in the 2018 NFL Draft.

1. While his fellow quarterbacks stated their case to be the best player in this year’s draft class, Darnold declined to make that assertion. On Friday, the 20-year-old from USC addressed his turnovers and embraced the idea of playing for the Browns, who own the first and fourth overall picks.

Darnold was also the only member of those five signal-callers who chose not to throw during Saturday morning’s on-field workouts, something that disappointed NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock.

“I said this on the air, I was a little disappointed Darnold didn’t throw,” said Mayock, who ranked Darnold as his top quarterback prospect last week. “I think he’d get a chance to show off a little bit and this is all about competition and I wonder in his heart of hearts if he missed competing today because the other guys went out and ripped it pretty good.”

2. Meanwhile, Darnold’s friend and competitor, Allen, stole the spotlight during the first portion of on-field workouts, showing off his uncanny arm talent — so much so that it drew oohs, ahhs and gasps from those gathered inside Lucas Oil Stadium.

While there remain concerns regarding Allen’s accuracy — he completed 56 percent of his passes in two years as a starter — and consistency, he seemed to only bolster his draft stock Saturday.

“I thought Josh Allen put on a show, and I knew he would,” said Mayock, who added Allen has the strongest arm he’s seen since JaMarcus Russell. “All I’m talking about is arm talent. I’m talking about the ability to play in the NFL. Forget about what JaMarcus didn’t do with his career, his arm talent is off the charts, and I thought he showed off a little bit today.”

There was once a time when Allen was a little-regarded, two-star recruit out of high school. More recently, he was an unheralded quarterback at a California community college before transferring to Wyoming in 2015. Those days were officially obliterated Saturday morning.

“A few years ago I was in junior college, so I’m taking this all in and it’s a really surreal moment,” he said, “just kind of see everything that I’ve dre Men’s 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey amt of as a kid is kind of falling into place and if you knew who I was three years ago, I don’t think you would say this is possible, so it’s been really cool.”

3. One quarterback more accustomed to the spotlight (at least the last few years) is Mayfield, the 2017 Heisman Trophy winner. That dynamic came through in Friday’s news conference with reporters and then again during workouts. “I think he embraces the limelight. Some guys get kind of worried about it, I think he comes out there and says, ‘Hell, if 32 teams are here, let’s rip it. Let’s have some fun,’” Mayock said.

“And he did, I thought he had some fun. A Men’s 1994 Miami Dolphins 13 Dan Marino 75th Anniversary Aqua Authentic Throwback Jersey nd as the day went on and he got into his com Mens 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey fort level, intermediate and deep routes, several people said to me — including (former Texans quarterback and NFL Network analyst) David Carr down on the field. He was like, ‘Mike, his arm is better than I expected.’ And I thought the same thing coming off my first exposure to him watching tape back in the fall.”

Mayfield, a two-time walk-on who’s earned high marks for his accuracy, competitiveness and toughness, is regarded as one of the most polarizing players in this year’s draft class because of his less-than-prototypical size, on-field antics and abrasive personality. 

4. The multi-talented Jackson showed a lot of poise in his Friday news conference, laughing off questions about a report that teams had asked him to work out as a receiver at the combine. The electrifying Louisville quarterback and 2016 Heisman winner wasn’t about to back down. “Whoever likes me at quarterback, that’s where I’m going,” he said with a wide smile. “That’s strictly my position.”

Jackson can walk the talk, too, using both his arms and legs to dominate college football the past two seasons. He did, however, show inconsistent accuracy (he completed 59 percent of his throws at Louisville) during on-field workouts. Mayock noticed that but made clear he believes a team will commit to the dynamic playmaker and build around  Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap his talents.

“I think he’s the most fascinating athlete in this draft and I think a team’s going to bite on him and commit to him philosophically. And you’ve got to understand what you’re getting,” he said.

“You saw it out there today — erratic, inconsistent, but again, perhaps the best athlete in this draft and I think the way the NFL’s going, teams are going to start to commit. You saw what happened with Deshaun Watson. I think Bill O’Brien did an outstanding job of catering to Deshaun and making him comfortable last year and I think somebody’s going to do that with Lamar because he’s Michael Vick and he has as good of legs as any quarterback in the history of the game. He’s going to win games with his legs.”

5. Rosen, who was described by Mayock as the best pure passer in years, did nothing to dispel that notion during throwing drills. “I thought Josh Rosen was as good as advertised, he’s as natural a thrower as I’ve seen since Sam Bradford,” Mayock said. “My concern with him is the durability but for today, as the day went on, I thought he got better and better, accurate at all three levels.”

The UCLA star quarterback also shrugged off a report he wouldn’t want to play in Cleveland and addressed questions about his passion for the game and personality.

“I love football with all of my heart and soul. If I didn’t, I just don’t think I would’ve been able to make it through the grind of college,” he said.

“Football is an unbelievable team sport, and that’s what’s so cool about it is that I’m not playing exclusively for my own passions, I’m playing for all of my teammates. So it’s cool when you can throw a touchdown at the Rose Bowl and turn to the sideline and see 120 of your best friends jump in joy. You can see administration and fans that you know personally because you’re in class with them and you can see your coaches. You’re playing for them.”​

Louisville Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey star Lamar Jackson hopes to prove doubters wrong

‘Whoever likes me at quarterback, that’s where I’m going. That’s strictly my position’

INDIANAPOLIS —Lamar Jackson would like everyone to know that he intends on playing quarterback in the NFL and, frankly, doesn’t appreciate those who think he’d be better suited as a wide receiver.

“Whoever likes me at quarterback, that’s where I’m going,” he said Friday with a wide smile. “That’s strictly my position.”

Jackson, the electrifying Louisville quarterback and 2016 Heisman Trophy winner, showed poise as he laughed off a report that teams wanted to see him work out at another position here at the league’s annual scouting combine. By the end of his news conference, he had many of those in attendance laughing along with him in what was a legitimately genuine, thoughtful and funny session with reporters.

“I’ve faced adversity throughout my whole life. Just coming up with youth football and going to high school,” said Jackson, a former four-star, dual-threat qua Mens 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey rterback out of South Florida. “They said you can’t do this and that. Got to college, was able to do it. I’m here now. I’m ready for it.”

That approach could pay dividends for Jackson as teams evaluate him and a talented quarterback class that includes USC’s Sam Darnold, UCLA’s Josh Rosen, Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield and Wyoming’s Josh Allen. What separates Jackson, however, from the othe Mitchell and Ness Dan Fouts Los Angeles Chargers Vintage 1984 Throwback Football Jersey Cheap rs is his uncanny ability as a runner and how he used his arm and legs to dominate college football the past two years.

“I can throw on the run. I can thro Men’s 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey w to any part of the field. Any route,” he said, “and I have speed to get us out of anything, any trouble.”

While some have questioned Jackson’s ability as a passer, a plurality of analysts — including NFL Network’s Mike Mayock and Daniel Jeremiah — seem to strongly disagree. “If I were him and a team app Men’s 1985 Chicago Bears 34 Walter Payton Mitchell and Ness Authentic Throwback Navy Blue Jersey roached me,” Jeremiah said recently on NFL Network, “my piece of advice would be, if they ask you to switch positions, Lamar, shake their hand and say, ‘Thank you I look forward to playing against you. Say, ‘I’m  a quarterback. End of discussion.’”

“I think he’s the most fascinating athlete in this draft and I think a team’s going to bite on him and commit to him philosophically,” Mayock added Saturday in a news conference. “And you’ve got to understand what you’re getting.”

Indeed, Jackson’s on-field workout was up and down. He was inconsistent with his accuracy while others like Allen and Mayfield appeared to boost their stock during passing drills. Still, Mayock made clear that Jackson has proven his worth as a signal-caller at the next level.

“(He’s) perhaps the best athlete in this draft and I think the way the NFL’s going, teams are going to start to commit,” he said. “You saw what happened with Deshaun Watson. I think Bill O’Brien did an outstanding job of catering to Deshaun and making him comfortable last year and I think somebody’s going to do that with Lamar because he’s Michael Vick and he has as good of legs as any quarterback in the history of the game.”

In a Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap  somewhat unexpected turn of events, Jackson declined to run the 40-yard-dash in an effort to only showcase his passing ability. “I don’t need to show off my speed and show people I can make them miss,” he said. “I have to show off my arm. Because that’s where they doubt me.”

Of course, he hopes to leave the combine having with less of those questions.

“I thought I did a good job at quarterback, I thought I did,” Jackson said, laughing. “But, hey, they say what they want to say. They’re going to build a story. I’m here now. I’m at the combine. I’m happy to be here. I just have to show off my ability.”

Minkah Fitzpatrick un Mitchell and Ness Throwback NFL Jersey daunted by challenge with Browns

Alabama’s star DB thinks he could be an impact player on and off the field

INDIANAPOLIS —Minkah Fitzpatrick realizes it’s possible he could go from the best team in college football to the Browns, who are coming off the franchise’s first ever winless season.

It might sound like a daunting proposition, but Alabama’s captain and star defensive back isn’t about to flinch. He Vintage 1968 Mitchell and Ness Joe Namath New York Jets Throwback Jersey Cheap  thinks he could have an impact in Cleveland both on and off the field like he did in Tuscaloosa.

“It’s an NFL team, they have great talent. Offense, defense, special teams. Great coaches,” Fitzpatrick said Sunday afternoon at the NFL’s annual scouting combine. “I’ll just have to go down there and use what I learned at Alabama and apply it to the Browns.”

Fitzpatrick, who can play safety or corner at the next level, is among several top players whom the Browns could select with either the first or fourth-overall pick. While he’s earned high marks for his versatility and competitiveness, Fitzpatrick’s strong leadership skills and relentless work ethic might be what separates him from some of this year’s top prospects.

Fitzpatrick, asked about his leadership style, said, “I’m a combination of a do-as-I-do and a vocal guy … My junior year I was challenged by coach (Nick) Saban and my defensive backs coach to be more vocal and I had to call some guys out and some stuff or whatever but I did it because I loved them and I did it because I wanted to see the best version of themselves.”

That approach seemed to pay off.

In three seasons, Fitzpatrick and Alabama won two championships, including this past year when he wore multiple hats on the Crimson Tide’s dominating defense. Though there aren’t many holes in his game, Fitzpatrick wants to show off that versatility at the combine and prove to teams he as good as his tape says he is.

“I think this weekend is going to show people that I have the hips and feet of a corner but I also have the IQ and the tackling ability of a safety,” he said, “(I want them) to know I can play multiple positions at a high level.”

Fitzpatrick would give the Browns a dynamic defensive back and young talented player in a secondary that struggled last season. Whether that’s at corner or safety remains to be seen, but general manager John Dorsey believes in Fitzpatrick’s ability to play both positions.

“He’s a very talented player, and I think he’s one of those guys who could actually maybe play Men’s 1994 Buffalo Bills 35th Anniversary Jim Kelly Mitchell and Ness Royal Blue Throwback Jersey  corner, maybe he could play safety,” Dorsey said earlier this week, “but I think you want to watch him move around amongst his peers this weekend, see how he moves and turns and twists. I know he’s a really good football player, and whoever gets him is going to be very lucky.”

NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah ranked Fitzpatrick his fifth-best prospect, writing the defensive back’s versatility, instincts and ball skills separate him from his peers. In an interview with Cleveland Browns Daily, Jeremiah said the prospect of adding Fitzpatrick to Cleveland’s youth-laden roster “is pretty darn attractive to me to get a blue chip playmaker on the back end to kind of supplement what you got with Myles Garrett, last year’s No. 1.”

In the meantime, Fitzpatrick hopes to show teams — including the Browns — why he can be a difference-maker from Day 1.

“I’m just trying to validate all the reasons why I think I’m one of the best players in this draft class,” he said. “I’m just being myself, talking ball and talking life.”

2018 NFL Combine: With eye towa Los Angeles Angels Custom Jersey rd future, Browns keeping tabs on left tackles

‘You can’t have enough young offensive linemen’

INDIANAPOLIS — The Browns hope Joe Thomas returns for yet another season and expects the future Hall of Famer to make a decision regarding his playing future soon.

That won’t stop them from taking a closer look at this year’s class of left tackles at the NFL’s annual scouting combine with an eye toward the future.

“You can’t have enough young offensive linemen and I think as you go and attempt to build a football team, you try to get offensive linemen throughout the draft somewhere,” general manager John Dorsey said Thursday.

Thomas, the 10-time Pro Bowler who’s been mulling over retirement since a season-ending triceps injury last fall, echoed a similar sentiment in J Men’s Authentic Customized Los Angeles Angels Alternate Red Baseball Jersey Cheap anuary at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards. “No matter what I decide to do this year, this is my last year on my contract in Cleveland,” he said then. “I’m also 33 right now, so they need to be planning for somebody else pretty soon down the line, whether it’s this year or the following year.”

The Browns will get a good look at some of the nation’s best prospects in Indianapolis, a group that includes top prospects in Texas’ Connor Williams, Notre Dame’s Mike McGlinchey, Oklahoma’s Orlando Brown, Pittsburgh’s Brian O’Neill, Ohio State’s Jamarco Jones, Oregon’s Tyrell Crosby and Mississippi State’s Martinas Rankin. While it’s probably unlike the Browns — owners of the first and fourth overall picks — would use one of those early selections on a tackle, considering the team’s more pressing needs at quarterback and other positions, th Personalized Angels Baseball Jersey is year’s class of tackles should offer them options late in the first round and on Day 2.

Brown, the son of the late and former Browns tackle Orlando Brown, struggled during on-field workouts but believes his “football IQ” will help mitigate those shortcomings. “It’s some of the best in the country. It’s honestly my best asset: how I understand the game. I understand the NFL. I understand these schemes and what’s expected,” said Brown, the two-time Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year. “I’m a good learner. And I’m a guy that understands my job isn’t gonna just be given to me. I have to take it.”

Jones, a two-year starter who backed up Lions left tackle and first-round pick Taylor Decker, hopes he’ll be the latest Ohio State offensive linemen to experience early success in the league. “OSU has a long history of offensive linemen, in general, going to the NFL and producing and just being able to gain a lot of insight from those guys that have done it before me and use it to my benefit and hopefully help and prolong my career,” he said.

McGlinchey, a three Custom Angels Jersey -year starter who played left tackle for his final two seasons at Notre Dame, protected Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer in 2015 and 2016 and was teammates with Baltimore’s Ronnie Stanley and Houston’s Nick Martin.

As the Browns await word from Thomas, they’ll keep tabs on players like McGlinchey and the rest of the top tackles.

“Joe is no spring chicken,” Dorsey said. “So I think it’s important to plan for that as well.”​

2018 NFL Combin Los Angeles Angels Custom Jersey e: Saquon Barkley dazzles, shows off rare athleticism during on-field drills

Former Penn State star doesn’t disappoint, maintains projection as top RB

INDIANAPOLIS — Saquon Barkley was as advertised from start to finish during Friday’s on-field drills at the 2018 NFL Combine.

That meant the Penn State running back broke away from a deep pack of talented running backs in a variety of ways, as he posted impressive numbers on the bench press, vertical leap, 40-yard dash and many more.

One day after posting 29 repetitions on the bench press, tied for the best total among all running backs and even most offensive linemen, Barkley clocked a 4.40-second 40-yard dash — second-best among all running backs and just a few one-hundredths of a second behind NC State’s Nyheim Hines, who is 36 pounds lighter — and posted the best vertical leap (41 inches). According to NFL Research, Barkley is just the second player to ever post 25 or more bench press repetitions to go along with a vertical leap of 40 inches or better.

The first? Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, who was the first pick in last year’s draft.

“I try to be a versatile player. I’m very confident in myself,” Barkley said Thursday. “Whether the ball’s on the 1-yard line or the 99-yard line, I like t Los Angeles Angels Custom Jersey o think I can find a way to get into the end zone.

“I can do it all. I can go over top of you. I can beat you with speed. I can beat you with some wiggle. I can run through you. I try to improve every day.”

Barkley said Thursday it’d be “awesome” to land in Cleveland, which holds both the first and fourth picks in this year’s first round. Asked specifically about Barkle Custom Angels Jersey y, Browns general manager John Dorsey said simply, “he’s a good football player.”

Dorsey drafted one of the league’s top running backs in last year’s third round, Kareem Hunt, in his final year with the Chiefs. He made clear that there’s still plenty of reasons to draft a running back early if the player can be a true “difference-maker.”

“I think there are some really talented running backs in this thing. That is not to say whoever the first running back taken can’t be a franchise difference-maker,” Dorsey said. “That is how you have to look at these things as well. I mean, if you look back at Gale Sayers. What was Gale Sayers picked back in the day? He was picked up really early and he was a difference-maker. So, I mean, it is a case-by-case study.”

Baker Mayfield believes he’d be t Los Angeles Angels Custom Jersey he difference-maker for Browns

Heisman Trophy winner confident he’s the draft’s best QB

INDIANAPOLIS — It took just one question for Baker Mayfield to provide one of the most memorable lines from the 2018 NFL Combine.

Standing behind the podium Friday, one day before he throws Los Angeles Angels Custom Jersey  w Men’s Authentic Custom Stitched Los Angeles Angels Road Gray Baseball Jersey Sale ith the rest of this year’s top quarterbacks, the former Oklahoma star and Heisman trophy winner oozed the same kind of confidence he displayed on the field throughout his decorated college career. Asked about the prospect of landing with the Browns, who hold the first and fourth picks in this year’s first round, Mayfield didn’t hold back.

“I think if anybody’s going to turn that franchise around, it would be me. I’d be able to put it in the right direction,’’ Mayfield said. “They’re close. They’re very close. They have the right pieces. I think they just need one guy, a quarterback, to make that difference.”

Mayfield hopes to be that guy, but there’s plenty of competition to be this year’s top quarterback and No. 1 overall pick. And Browns general manager John Dorsey made it clear Thursday it’s no guarantee the team will use the top pick on a quarterback — or at all — as he left open the possibility of a trade.

Dorsey, who watched one of Mayfield’s most memorable moments of his senior season in person, has said Mayfield’s accomplishments — Heisman Trophy, twice going from walk-on to starter, finished tied for fifth all-time in total offense (15,960), second-best in passing efficiency — “speaks for itself.” Browns coach Hue Jackson, who has said he prefers quarterbacks to be 6-foot-2 or taller, said he considers the 6-foot Mayfield to be an “outlier” who has the potential to be a special NFL player.

It’s still all to be determined, and Mayfield is focused on leaving the best possible impression on the Browns and any other team that might consider him with an early first-round pick.

“You see guys like Tyrod Taylor, (Drew) Brees Men’s Authentic Customized Los Angeles Angels Alternate Red Baseball Jersey Cheap , Russell Wilson, they’ve proven (height) doesn’t matter,” Mayfield said. “If you want to say anything else, I’ve got three years of tape you can watch. Height doesn’t matter at that point. I think I’ve got less batted balls at the line of scrimmage than all of the other guys here, and I’m pretty sure I’m shorter than them, too.”

Mayfield said he’s been open and honest with teams that might have concerns about his character, stemming from an off-field arrest and some of his questionable, on-field behavior. “What you see is what you get,” he said, acknowledgi Custom Angels Jersey ng his “brutally honest” might not be for everyone.

Mayfield said he knows any question is “fair game” because of the major investment teams are making with their top picks. As he displayed Friday, he doesn’t hesitate with his answer for why he’s worth it.

“I can make any throw,” he said. “Winning is most important, but the way I’ve been able to get my guys around me to play, not just the offensive players around me, the other 10 guys, but the defensive guys, special teams. The energy I bring, the passion I bring, it’s infectious. You can ask anybody on that Oklahoma staff. That’s what I bring to the table and it helps us out.

“I can handle the spotlight. I think I’d be just fine. Under pressure is something I thrive on. I don’t think I’d treat it any differently. First things first, you’ve got to win, it doesn’t matter where you are. The most important thing is winning.”
