How To Watch
Combine Schedule for Saturday
Top Storylines to Follow
Goff or Wentz the top quarterback?
Saturday will be a true test for the two top quarterbacks to establish their high draft stock. Goff, a California product, has been the consensus top quarterback for much of the season, but Wentz, from FCS powerhouse North Dakota State, has rapidly gained momentum during the last several weeks to garner top five consideration in this draft. Seeing the two stars go head-to-head could give some clarity on who is the top quarterback in the class.
Laquon Treadwell won't run 40-yard dash
Treadwell, rated one of the top receivers in the class, will reportedly not participate in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. The Ole Miss product has many great traits for a wide receiver prospect, but what he doesn't have is top end speed. Treadwell has said that he will run the 40-yard dash at his pro day, but regardless, it does remain a curious decision. If he can show that he can be a viable vertical threat, Treadwell could be the first receiver off the board at the NFL Draft.
Who will emerge at tight end?
Hunter Henry, an Arkansas product, is the consensus top tight end entering the NFL Draft this year. But, what other tight ends could make their case for a high selection with a solid showing at the Combine? Some names include Austin Hooper, Nick Vannett, and Henry Krieger-Coble. The top rookie receiving tight end this past season was Will Tye, so it does bode optimism for some of the late round tight end prospects in this class.
Michael Thomas or Braxton Miller?
The Ohio State receiving duo offers two of the top wide receiver options in this class. Thomas stands at 6-foot-3 and could have a home on the outside as an X receiver. Miller, a former quarterback, has quick feet, downfield speed, and well-rounded athleticism. Both are borderline first round picks, but it will be interesting to see how the duo competes against one another.
