2018 NFL Scouting Combine Edge Results and Analysis

On the edge.

Who helped themselves the most

Kylie Fitts, Utah: The NFL was weird about who they defined as edge players on their website, but we’ll roll with it. Out of the players who fit their description, Fitts did the most this weekend. While his 40 time wasn’t among the top, he didn’t finish lower than sixth in every other workout. Topping out on the bench press and doing well in the agility drills will certainly work in Fitts’ favor come draft time.

Who hurt themselves the most

Hercules Mata’afa, Washington State: There weren’t many high-profile edge guys who had disastrous outings, but Mata’afa came the closest. On the plus side, his 40 was in the middle of the pack, and he did well on the bench press. However, he was at the bottom of the rest of the workout list. His poor showings in the agility drills are especially concerning.

Mixed bag

Harold Landry, Boston College: Landry was a monster in the agility drills, leading the pack in all three events. However, the concern with Landry heading into the combine was his strength, and while his bench press performance was fine, he could’ve done better. His 40 time wasn’t up to what he showed in college as well. Still, Landry should still be in first-round contention come April.
