2012 NFL Combine: Defensive Backs times and analysis
Top Performers from the day
Morris Claiborne: He ran a little slow and high, but it’s evident the kid can play. He has great ball skills and ridiculously long arms.
Harrison Smith: Ran a decent time, but it was on-field where he starred. Deion and Mayock both commented on how smooth he performed.
Josh Robinson: Ran the fastest time at the 2012 NFL Combine. He is the quintessential reason they run and jump. UCF has produced some players but you gotta see the skills on film.
J. Jenkins: Moved very smooth throughout the drills, breaking out of his cuts effortlessly. Despite the off the field questions, he answered why he is looked at as an elite prospect.
Jayron Hosley: A former Virginia Tech CB who stayed low in the drills, ran well, and has punt return skills. Hello, Jayron.
Honorable Mention: Gillmore’s 40 and Bentley’s speed overall
Unofficial 40-yard dash times:
- Bentley: 4.37
- Brooks: 4.35
- Gilmore (former QB): 4.44
- Cliff Harris: 4.57 (slow)
- Trumaine Johnson: 4.53
- Omar Bolden: DNP b/c of ACL injury but did 25 reps of 225.
