Quarterback class has plenty to prove before 2016 NFL draft

Joey Bosa could also make an impact for the Cowboys in the draft

With the exception of projected first round pick Hunter Henry, the rest of these players had something to prove in Indianapolis. He even ran a 4.48 40-yard dash, which is impressive considering he's known as a speedster. Notre Dame's Will Fuller clocked in a 4.32 time and TCU's Kolby Listenbee was timed at 4.39. Georgia running back Keith Marshall still holds a slight lead with the top overall 40-yard dash time at 4.31 seconds. He has been as fast as the high 4.5s on occasion in training. "He measured in at 6'3" and 294 pounds, but ran a 4.87 40-yard dash and posted a 35-inch vertical - both of which were easily better than anyone else of similar size at the combine. Unless he put up some insanely slow 40 time, he'd still end up drafted somewhere in the middle of the draft and enjoy a nice little Julian Edleman-style career. In 2014 - Odell Beckham Jr.'s star-studded class - it would have been good for an 11-place tie.

"I miss the media".

"I hurt my family, my friends, my teammates, my coaches who gave me chance after chance", Williams said. "We ended up doing a lot of different stuff out of the gun". I'm taking away what they do best.

The NFL Combine still has another day for potential NFL prospects to showcase themselves, but the six Stanford Cardinal players who were invited to participate have wrapped up their pre-NFL workouts. I think that's the ideal situation for him. He's young. He's won a lot of games. I'm told he could run the 40-yard dash in under 4.7 seconds and a time in the low 4.6s is not out of the question. He was also among the top performers in the broad jump, three-cone drill and 20-yard drill, and his on-field work did nothing to change his status as one of the top players in the draft. Speaking on Thursday, Jones said he was looking forward to showcasing his speed. But I really can't speak for it because I have never played a 3-4.

Tapper's speed is no secret to OU fans - or Big 12 quarterbacks.

Hopefully there will be a cornerback that can challenge those guys for the top mark this year, though nobody is close to beating Chris Johnson's record, which went under 4.3 seconds.

"How do I answer that?"

"I had some opportunities to come up with some picks in my career. I think I'll be comfortable staying wherever they see me". "That's all I know".

If you are anxious about Bosa's lack of production in 2015, I point you to a Tweet by Bleacher Report's Regimbal who used CBS Sports' Dane Brugler's Vine to point out how much attention Bosa received in 2015. "That was their game plan". "I'm here prepared and I'm telling you I'm the best corner in this draft class".

Do you agree with me? If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article. I have no idea where either of them are going. "I'm playing zone, I'm able to blitz, I'm able to show my versatility, everything".

We talked about what edge rushers to keep an eye on at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine here and why it was an important week for each player.
