NFL COMBINE MVP

The NFL Combine MVP could go in two different directions.

On one hand, Florida State cornerback Jalen Ramsey solidified his placement as a top-five pick in this year’s draft and could very easily be the first defensive player taken instead of Joey Bosa.

Ramsey – 6-foot-1, 202 pounds – ran the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds while finishing with the top vertical jump (41.5 inches) and broad jump (11-feet, three inches) marks among cornerbacks.

On the other, Alabama running back Derrick Henry, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, stood out based on what he did with his 6-foot-3, 247-pound frame.

Henry ran the 40-yard dash in 4.54 second while recording a 37-inch vertical jump, a 130-inch broad jump and running the 60-yard shuffle in 11.5 seconds.

While Henry’s numbers could be cause for a team to bite on him earlier than expected, we’ll give the edge to Ramsey here.
