2011 NFL Scouting Combine: Defensive Backs Take The Field

Today is the final day of the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine, and defensive backs will have the stage to themselves in Indianapolis. Matt Bowen of the National Football Post offered a look this morning at five things to watch from the defensive backs today.

Linebackers worked out Monday, and New York Giants fans should be interested in the linebacker breakdown provided by the NFP’s Wes Bunting.

Bunting says Martez Wilson 4.49 speed could have pushed him into the first round. He also said that while Akeem Ayers ran only a 4.83 40-yard dash, he tested well in other areas and “plays faster than he times.” He also had some intriguing comments regarding Ohio State’s Brian Rolle.

Defensive linemen also worked on Monday, and Draft Countdown’s Scott Wright came away gushing about the talent in that group.

Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones ran a 4.39 40-yard dash, which is even more impressive now that we know he did it on a broken foot that will require surgery.
