2018 NFL Scouting Combine DL Results and Analysis

In the trenches. Again.

Who helped themselves the most

Bradley Chubb, NC State: Marcus Davenport was expected to give Chubb a run for his money as the top defensive lineman in this year’s draft. The latter responded well, performing well in virtually every drill. His strength is still a concern, but Chubb has a chance to be the first defender taken in April.

Who hurt themselves the most

Derrick Nnadi, Florida State: One would think that Nnadi, a slightly undersized interior defender, would have a faster 40, but he was dead last there. His bench press numbers were also middling, and he did very poorly in the agility workouts.

Mixed bag

Harrison Phillips, Stanford: Phillips leading the way on the bench press wasn’t a surprise. He’s a very capable run defender. However, he was mixed during the rest of the workouts. Showing off more athleticism would’ve helped his stock. As of now, he’s on the fringe of the first round.
