  • KC Running Back #1
    Jerick McKinnon caught 2-of-2 targets for 15 yards in the Chiefs’ Super Bowl LVIII victory over the 49ers.
    Unsigned until May — in fairness, likely due to salary cap reasons — McKinnon failed to maintain the momentum of his comeback 2022, struggling for touches early in the season before landing on injured reserve following sports-hernia surgery. The change-of-pace back never bettered four carries or seven touches in a game, looking out of gas on the ground and less efficient than usual as a pass catcher. He allowed Isiah Pacheco to operate as the primary receiving back. Going on 32 with a lengthy injury history and lack of 2023 production, it’s possible McKinnon has played his final NFL contest.
  • Former Texas Longhorn WR Xavier Worthy ran an official 4.21 40-yard dash at the 2024 NFL Combine.
    The 4.21 official 40-yard dash time set a combine record, edging out John Ross’ time of 4.22. Worthy’s combine testing almost assuredly boosted his draft stock into the first round, with the biggest hurdle being the multitude of first-round grades at the wide receiver position this year. The former Texas wide receiver was clocked at a blistering 22.7 mph with the ball in his hands in 2022.
  • CLG Quarterback
    Former Michigan Wolverines QB J.J. McCarthy weighed in at 219 pounds at the 2024 NFL Combine.
    That means the former Wolverines quarterback is up approximately 20 pounds from his playing weight at Michigan, easing some concerns over his relative lack of mass under center. McCarthy took measurements but did not test at the combine due to lingering hamstring tightness, but he looked strong when going through throwing drills. McCarthy could find himself a late first-round or early day two pick in the coming draft.
  • Former Georgia Bulldog WR Ladd McConkey ran an official 4.39 40 at the 2024 NFL Combine.
    McConkey measured 6' 0" and 186 pounds, drawing comparison to Garrett Wilson almost unanimously based on his testing metrics at the combine. He and Adonai Mitchell appear to have tested their way into the end of the first round discussion considering how recent drafts have unfolded, particularly considering the needs of teams like the Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, and Kansas City Chiefs.
  • Former Tennessee Volunteers RB Jaylen Wright ran an official 4.38 40-yard dash at the 2024 NFL Combine.
    Wright measured 5' 10" and 210 pounds, which, when added to his elite 11' 2" broad jump, left him with a RAS score of 9.75. That athleticism score ranks 44th of 1,745 running backs tested since 1987 and his broad jump was the second longest ever recorded. He has undoubtedly made a case to be one of the first two running backs selected in the coming draft, with his ultimate landing spot likely dependent on how trades shake out on day one.
  • CLG Wide Receiver
    Former Texas Longhorn WR Adonai Mitchell ran a 4.34 40-yard dash at the 2024 NFL Combine.
    Mitchell measured at 6' 2" and weighed in at 205 pounds, placing him in elite company with the blistering 40-yard dash time. In fact, only he and DK Metcalf ran a sub-4.35 40-yard dash since the 2015 combine at that height and weight. Mitchell does not bring the same flash on tape as fellow draft eligible players such as Marvin Harrison, Malik Nabers, and Rome Odunze, but the elite testing on Saturday had to bolster his draft capital as the 2024 NFL Draft draws closer.
  • CLG Running Back
    Former Michigan RB Blake Corum ran an unofficial 4.53 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.
    The result is far from what the 5' 7", 205-pound former Michigan running back was hoping for. The size and speed metrics bring his closest comp to Devonta Freeman, the latter of whom has managed to carve out a meaningful role at the NFL level despite below average size and speed. Corum remains in the discussion to be the first running back off the board in the 2024 NFL Draft.
  • FA Guard #64
    ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports the Giants plan to release OG mark Glowinski.
    Glowinski has spent the last two seasons with the Giants, appearing in 29 games while making 22 starts. The Giants save $5.7 million against this year’s cap with the release of Glowinski, who was their highest graded guard per PFF with a blocking grade of 64.8. Set to turn 32 in May, Glowinski has 96 career start under his belt and can still be of use to a team in need of help on the interior.
  • DAL Tackle #77
    NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports impending free agent LT Tyron Smith “is unlikely to return” to the Cowboys next season.
    The Cowboys selected Smith with the No. 9 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. The former USC Trojan has paid off in a big way for the Cowboys over the last 13 seasons, earning eight Pro Bowl nods and two First-Team All-Pro recognitions in his decorated career. Injuries have plagued Smith since 2016, as he’s yet to appear in more than 13 games over the last eight seasons. When healthy, Smith remains one of the best blindside blockers in the league, earning a PFF pass block grade of 88.6 last season. Smith will be 33-years-old at the start of next season, and should have a healthy market for teams interested in teams shoring up the left side of their offensive line.
  • FA Quarterback
    ESPN’s Field Yates reports LSU QB Jayden Daniels is opted to skip the measurement portion of the NFL Scouting Combine.
    Daniels and fellow LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers both opted to skip the measurement portion of the combine and are expected to instead be measured at LSU’s Pro Day on March 27th. Daniels are Nabers are also expected to skip the workout portion of the combine, saving all drills for their Pro Day.
  • FA Wide Receiver
    NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports a medical evaluation at the NFL Scouting Combine revealed a stress fracture in rookie WR Ainias Smith’s left shin.
    Smith will not work out at the combine due to the injury and is set to visit with a specialist next week, per Rapoport. The former Texas A&M prospect isn’t atop anyone’s draft board, but he did amass 180 receptions for just over 2,400 yards and 19 touchdowns during his five years with the Aggies. Smith can also play a role on special teams, with 102 combined kick and punt returns also on his college resumé.
