|Which Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers, and Running Backs stood out over the weekend at the Combine? Check out NFLRUSH's top picks!||Over the weekend, Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers, and Running Backs took part in the NFL Combine -- here's who stood out:
WR Julio Jones was a monster on the broad jump, with 11'3". No one else even made it to 11 feet! Plus, he was one of only five guys to run under 4.40 at the 40-yard dash (4.39).
Heisman Trophy-winning QB Cam Newton broad jumped a very impressive 10'6" and ran a sub-4.60 40-yard dash; which is notable since at 6'5' and 248 pounds, he's as big as most of the Tight Ends at the Combine.
WR Jonathan Baldwin had a vertical leap of 3.5 feet! And RB Da'Rel Scott had the best 40-yard dash time, at 4.34 seconds.
More big news on Sunday came from the weight room. Defensive Lineman Stephen Paea bench pressed 225 pounds 49 times, setting a new record. That's 11,025 pounds total. That's like lifting a couple of pickup trucks!
