The 2022 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis has come and gone and we’ve officially passed a major milestone on the road to the NFL Draft in April. Several top prospects got the chance to speak with several interested NFL teams and show off some of their physical abilities in position drills.

Michigan edge rusher Aidan Hutchinson displayed why he has been tabbed as one of the first players taken off the board come late April. The 6’7”, 260-pound prospect ran a 4.74 40 and did the three-cone drill in 6.73 seconds, the fastest time for any defensive lineman over 6’5” at the combine since 2003. Fellow top passing rushing prospect Oregon’s Kayvon Thibodeaux clocked in a 4.58 40 but elected to opt out the position drills.

Staying on the defensive front, the Georgia trio of Jordan Davis, Travon Walker, and Devonte Wyatt all turned heads and could all potentially have their names called on Night 1 of the draft. Davis in particular went viral on Saturday as at 340 pounds, he ran an unreal 4.78 40 time.

Also going viral was Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave, who put his blazing speed on display by running what initially thought to be a 4.26 40. It was later to be revealed to actually be a 4.39, but still impressive nonetheless. He and fellow Buckeye teammate Garrett Wilson have a serious shot at being the first two receivers to be taken off the board.

Top quarterbacks like Pittsburgh’s Kenny Pickett, Liberty’s Malik Willis, and Cincinnati’s Desmond Ridder all got the opportunity to show off some of their arm talent through QB drills on Friday. They’ll all have an opportunity to further impress during their respective Pro Day workouts in the coming weeks.
