Combine Numbers – Monday & Tuesday

The defensive backs had the last chance on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium as the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine wrapped up on Tuesday in Indianapolis.

As is usually the case, with the exception of the bench press, the cornerbacks and safeties tend to turn in the best numbers of the Combine each year, holding the title of being the best athletes of the show. What went down on Tuesday was no different. Whether they amount to anything as a defensive back in the NFL, they were the stars of the underwear drills. Josh Norman of Central Florida turned in the best time in the Combine in the 40-yard dash at 4.33 seconds. He also had a broad jump of 11-feet, 1-inch, tied for the best jump of the meet.

In the 20-yard shuttle, Vanderbilt’s Casey Hayward had the best Combine time of 3.9 seconds and in the 60-yard shuttle, it was DB Jamell Fleming out of Oklahoma with the top time of 10.75 seconds.

Some of the big-name defensive backs coming the Combine had average performances in the tests. CB Morris Claiborne (above right) is the top rated defensive back and his 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash was slower than expected. The No. 2 CB Janoris Jenkins ran the 40 in 4.46 seconds and the rest of his numbers matched up with Claiborne.
