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.

Who are the small school stars set to surprise?

At the combine, where more than 300 players get to show off their talents, small school stars are able to show off their skills and make an impression in front of NFL coaches, general managers, and scouts. Some of the small school athletes expected to raise their draft stock at the Scouting Combine include former Liberty quarterback Josh Woodrum, Colorado State standout wide receiver Rashard Higgins and former East Carolina tight end Bryce Williams.
