Top 2014 NFL combine performers
Jimmy Garoppolo, Jadeveon Clowney among most impressive players
There were several standout performances during the four days of drills and athletic testing at the 2014 NFL scouting combine. Here is a look at the players who impressed me the most (sorted here by position).
Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois: He followed up a terrific East-West Shrine game with an outstanding Senior Bowl game, and then put on an impressive performance at the combine. The ball jumped out of his hands during passing drills, showing a live arm and quick feet out of the shotgun (he wasn't as quick from under center, but he's still inexperienced in that area). He showed arm strength, presence and athleticism.
