2013 NFL Combine results: Ryan Nassib, Alec Lemon improve draft stock

USA TODAY Sports

The 2013 NFL Combine has come to an end as Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib, as well as wide receiver Alec Lemon, have improved their draft stock, as well as other players from the New York area.

The 2013 NFL Combine has come to an end as hundreds of players have cycled through the field at Lucas Oil Stadium, taking turns showing what they have to offer to NFL coaches and scouts in attendance. Among those who impressed are Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib and wide receiver Alec Lemon.

Despite running a fairly slow 40 time of 5.06, Nassib showed skill in not only throwing accurate intermediate passes, but also showed accuracy in deep passes as well. The 6'2, 227-pound quarterback hasn't proven that he can lead an NFL offense quite yet, but he has taken the right first steps.

Lemon didn't quite stand out with a 40 time of 4.59, but he performed solidly in on-field drills and his size (6'1, 202 pounds) may attract NFL teams.

Syracuse also sent offensive lineman Justin Pugh and defensive back Shamarko Thomas to the Combine as well. Pugh impressed at the Combine, showing his quickness in on-field drills and Thomas opened a lot of eyes by falling down during his 40-yard dash. He still finished with a time of 4.42, though.

Rutgers sent a record six players to the Combine this year. They sent linebackers Steve Beauharnais and Khaseem Greene, wide receiver Mark Harrison, running back Jawan Jamison, tight end D.C. Jefferson and defensive back Logan Ryan.

The former Rutgers players helped boost their draft stock heading into the 2013 NFL Draft, especially wide receiver Mark Harrison. Harrison, a big-frame receiver -- which NFL teams are attracted to -- impressed scouts with his speed, running a 4.47 second 40-yard dash. He measured in at 6'3 and weighed in at 231 pounds.

The former Rutgers and Syracuse players are likely going to hear their names called at some point during the Draft in April, but they still have pro days to go through between now and then, which will give them an opportunity to either boost or hurt their draft stock again.
