ANALYSIS: Not to start on a downer, but I was highly disappointed to find out that my man-crush Nasir Adderley was not going to compete at the Scouting Combine…Adderley is still nursing an ankle injury, so I am very much looking forward to see him workout at the University of Delaware Pro Day…to the prospects who competed…the first thing that became apparent quickly was that the Safety position is deeper, and more talented than many first thought…the real winner from the Safety position has to be Juan Thornhill…Thornhill is a former CB, so his athleticism has never been brought into question, but his marks on Monday were just on another level…a 4.42 40 time, 21 reps on the bench, a 44 inch vertical leap, 141 inch broad jump–simply incredible…I would suggest that Juan Thornhill has elevated his stock into the 2nd round range…Chauncey Gardner-Johnson is a prospect I hold in high regard due to his versatility…his workouts in Indianapolis only confirmed the suspicion…Gardner-Johnson is in the late 1st/early 2nd round mix..Johnathan Abram ran a 4.45 40, and did little else after that…this time should not be surprising if you watch Abram’s range on tape…he has a chance to slide into the 1st round…Taylor Rapp showed extremely well in the short area quickness drills, 3-cone and 20-yard were on another level from his contemporaries…great sign for his projection…another prospect the very likely elevated his draft stock is Darnell Savage Jr…Savage is a prospect that I have been warming up to over the last few weeks…his speed is clearly evident on tape, but seeing it at the Scouting Combine helps his stock in a big way…Darnell Savage Jr. is on the RD2/RD3 fringe…the class continues to get deeper with the excellent showings from Amani Hooker, Marquise Blair, Sheldrick Redwine, and Zedrick Woods…not to be outdone, but Marvell Tell did so well on Monday that NFL teams are considering moving him to CB to play man to man, and play to his strengths…
