In 2010, as a redshirt true freshman, Ben Beckwith made the Mississippi State football team as a walk-on. Four seasons later, he's pursuing an NFL career, and will make an NFL roster due to his strong ability as a pass blocker, strong fundamentals, and his ability to play both guard and center. Once he's there, don't count him out. Ben Beckwith plays with a chip on his shoulder, and is a dedicated, hard working player who could earn a big role in an NFL offense early in his NFL career. As a projected 6th round pick, Beckwith will be an extreme value in the NFL Draft, and deserves to hear his name called earlier.
At 6-4, 317 pounds, Beckwith has the size that NFL scouts look for in an offensive line prospect. What can't be measured is the amount of heart that Ben Beckwith brings to the table as a player who has spent his career beating the odds with hard work and dedication. As a freshman and sophmore, Beckwith saw time as a special teams player mainly. As a junior, Beckwith worked his way into the Mississippi State starting offense, starting the final 12 games of the 2013 season. As a senior, Beckwith blocked for the SEC's 3rd ranked rushing offense. Not bad for a player that wasn't even rated by 247sports coming out of high school.
Unfortunately, Ben Beckwith did not participate in the 2015 NFL Combine. While scouts will be drawn to Beckwith's pro day on March 4th (pay attention to this date, if you are an NFL scout, you NEED to check this kid out), scouts are missing a huge opportunity to see Ben Beckwith side-by-side with other offensive line prospects. Scouts will have to refer to his game tape and Shrine Game tape to pair with his pro day results. If you watch the game tape and look at the numbers, the Mississippi State offensive line has done some phenomenal things during his time there.
While Beckwith is mostly known as a pass blocker in scouting circles, during his junior season against LSU, Beckwith opened holes for 5 rushes of 20+ yards. Later that season, Beckwith blocked for an offensive unit that produced 556 yards of total offense against Texas A&M. As a senior, Beckwith was named SEC offensive lineman of the week twice. The first time was against LSU, when Beckwith was the highest graded offensive lineman in an offensive unit that produced 570 total yards of offense. Beckwith recorded 5 knockdowns in that game. The second time was against
Texas A&M. Beckwith was moved from guard to center for the game and played every offensive snap at the position. The Mississippi State offense generated 559 yards of total offense, with almost 300 rushing yards. Clearly, Beckwith has the potential to be a solid, solid NFL lineman.
Ben Beckwith has the drive, the ability, and the talent to make an impact on any team that drafts him in 2015. As a player who has worked hard at every step of his football career to earn his place, Beckwith is the type of player that will be a hard worker on the practice field and a leader in the locker room. Players like Ben Beckwith, who work hard on every snap and in every practice, are the type of guy that you want to build a roster around, and Beckwith is a player that deserves a long, hard look from every NFL team. He'll likely be a later round selection, which means teams can bring him in and not expect him to start right away. His versatility alone is enough to make him a valuable pick later in the draft. His talent and pure drive to succeed will likely render him a steal who will outperform his draft position.
Dear NFL scouts, make sure you're at Ben Beckwith's pro day on March 4th. You won't regret it. And fans, Don't forget to check Ben out on twitter and facebook! From unrated walk-on to NFL prospect, Beckwith's story is one of the best success stories in college football. With a work ethic as strong as Ben Beckwith's, I expect that success story to continue in the NFL. Don't count him out on draft day.
The 3 cone drill and shuttle run measure an athlete's lateral movement ability and ability to change position at high speeds. These drills are fairly similar, so I'll group them. While the 40 is generally the most obvious measurement of "speed" at the combine, the shuttle run and 3 cone drills generally are a better measurement of a player's agility and evasiveness; anyone can move quickly in a straight line, but the ability to move quickly while changing direction is important for nearly all football players. These are some of the most important drills at the combine.
The shuttle run is fairly simple. From the NFL website:
"The short shuttle is the first of the cone drills. It is known as the 5-10-5. What it tests is the athlete's lateral quickness and explosion in short areas. The athlete starts in the three-point stance, explodes out 5 yards to his right, touches the line, goes back 10 yards to his left, left hand touches the line, pivot, and he turns 5 more yards and finishes.".
The 3 cone drill is slightly more complex. Again, from the NFL website:
The 3 cone drill tests an athlete's ability to change directions at a high speed. Three cones in an L-shape. He starts from the starting line, goes 5 yards to the first cone and back. Then, he turns, runs around the second cone, runs a weave around the third cone, which is the high point of the L, changes directions, comes back around that second cone and finishes.
These drills, then, tend to measure slightly different things. Wide Receivers and cornerbacks tend to dominate the shuttle run, and strong performances in the shuttle run can help boost a player's draft stock. For example, Desmond Trufant's 3.85 time in the shuttle run helped make him a first round pick in 2014. However, not all players who perform well in the shuttle are selected in the first round; in 2011, Austin Pettis ran a 3.88. Tavon Austin, one of the more well known pure athletes in recent years, clocked in at 4.01 seconds in 2013, a performance which helped secure his selection in the first round.
The 3 cone drill, like the shuttle run, are typically dominated by Wide Receivers and Cornerbacks, who tend to be the fastest players in the draft. While an elite time in the 3 cone drill doesn't necessarily mean a top tier prospect (the top 2 times are Jeff Maehl at 6.42 seconds, and Buster Skrine at 6.44 seconds), This drill, like the shuttle run, can be useful tools to analyze a player's pure athletic ability.
These drills are useful tools to analyze athletic ability among all positional groups. While cornerbacks and WRs may post the fastest times in these drills, all players need the tools measured by them. They are useful drills for analyzing an offensive line prospect's mobility, for example. If an offensive lineman performs well in these drills and was previously rated as one of the more athletic offensive linemen on your board, then your rating is confirmed. If a prospect outperforms your rating in this drill, then it's time to watch more film. These drills are a bit harder to prep for than the 40, and measure a few more variables. While these drills won't make or break a player's draft status, a solid performance can positively impact a player's draft stock. However, these drills can't erase a player's onfield performance in college.
Let's take a quick look at guards in 2013. Larry Warford finished 8th among guard prospects in the 3 cone drill and 16th (last among participating guards) among guards in the shuttle. However, Warford has emerged as the best (some would call him 2nd best behind Jonathan Cooper) guard from this draft class. Clearly, combine drill results don't give a complete picture of a player's ability, and must be looked at in conjunction with film.
The jumping category of combine drills measures lower body strength and explosiveness. These drills are very simple, but are also useful tools to measure players' lower body strength; better performance in these drills generally equates to stronger legs and better explosiveness. The vertical jump is also useful for wide receiver and cornerback prospects, who will often have to compete for jump balls in their career.
For the vertical jump, players stand flat footed, and their vertical reach is measured. A series of flags are hung above a player's head, and the player jumps as high as he can, trying to touch as high a flag as possible. The difference between the highest flag reachable while standing and the highest flag reachable at the end of the jump is the player's vertical jump measurement. Each player gets 2 attempts.
While the vertical jump may not make a big difference in a player's draft status on its own, it can sometimes predict a dominant pass rusher of the future. The second best vertical jump in Combine history, Cameron Wake's 45.5 inches in 2005, is a case in point. Wake went undrafted in 2005 and spent 2 years in the CFL. He signed with the Dolphins in 2009, and has since recorded 51.5 sacks and 3 Pro Bowl appearances. Therefore, a good vertical jump performance can sometimes point to a potentially explosive player.
The Broad Jump measures similar levels of explosiveness, and when combined with the vertical jump, can point to a player with high lower body strength. Basically, players start flat footed, and jump forward as far as possible. Players are able to fall forward or land flat footed at the end. If they fall backwards, the jump doesn't count.
These drills are useful in that they can measure a prospect's physical explosiveness in short bursts. If a player has a high vertical jump and a long broad jump, chances are that they'll be successful pass rushers, for example. While the 40 is often viewed as the marquis event of the combine, the jumps are often more useful in measuring a player's explosiveness. While the 40 is important for CBs, who might be burned by WRs with a far better 40 time than their own, the jumps are useful for all position groups, who need some semblance of short distant burst.
While the vertical and broad jumps are often overlooked, these are some of the more important events in the draft from a scouting lens. While a dominant performance in these events won't secure a prospect's standing on its own in my book, it can go a long way towards confirming an already strong evaluation of a player if they perform as expected in these drills.
Don't overlook the jumps at this year's combine. Pay attention to these numbers, they do have at least some relevance. For example, in 2008, Chris Long finished second in the both the vertical and broad jump behind Vernon Gholston. Long has matured into a solid NFL Defensive End. In 2011, JJ Watt dominated both drills, finishing first in the vertical jump and second in the broad jump. . Allen Bailey, D'Aundre Reed, and Cheta Ozougwu were the next 3 best performers in 2011 in the Verticle, with Robert Quinn and Aldon Smith Rounding out the top 6. Robert Quinn was slightly lower in the Broad Jump, but Aldon Smith outperformed Bailey, Reed, and Ozougwu. The top performer at D-End in the Broad Jump in 2011 was Ryan Kerrigan, another solid player. Clearly, these drills have some level of relevance, especially among pass rushers.
Just a quick reminder as we head into the Combine, not every poor performance at the Combine leads to a bad NFL career! Tom Brady performed poorly at the Combine, dropped to the 6th round in the draft, and yet will be a first ballot hall of famer five years after he retires. Long story short, don't dismiss a player completely if he performs poorly at the combine; this week, while important, does not define a player's career. If you'd like to see some of Brady's Combine film, click here.
The Bench Press is probably the simplest drill at the combine. Players bench 225 times for as many repetitions as possible. This drill measures two things, first, it measures a player's upper body strength. Second, it measures how much time players have spent in the weight room; more weight room time tends to correlate to more reps. The drill has it's flaws; it's easier for a player with shorter arms finish a rep than it is for a player with long arms, for example. Also, while a player may be able to put up good numbers in the weight room, that strength may not translate into on-field success if a player doesn't have good form. Therefore, the bench press should be used in conjunction with game tape and multiple other points of analysis.
Success in the Bench Press does not always correlate with on-field success. In 2013, guard Larry Warford benched 225 pounds 28 times. A solid number, but not even the best from his position group. Eric Herman benched 36 times, Jonathan Cooper 35 times, Lamar Mady 35 times, Brian Schwenke 31 times, and Chris Barker 29 times. Some might argue that Cooper is the better player from the group, but looking at both player's careers so far, Larry Warford is clearly the best guard of the 2013 class, no disrespect intended to Cooper.
Let's look at another set of recent numbers. In 2010, defensive tackle Geno Atkins came in tied for 3rd among defensive tackles with 34 reps with Torrell Troup and Brian Price. Jeffrey Owens was the best of the group with 44 reps, and Linval Joseph came in with 39 reps. Ndamukong Suh came in behind Atkins with 32 reps, and Gerald McCoy came in 12th among Defensive Tackle prospects in 2010 with 22 reps.
While the Bench Press does measure some type of pure upper body strength, it does not necessarily predict success in the NFL. Would you rather have Geno Atkins or Jeffrey Owens as your starting defensive tackle? How about choosing between Eric Herman or Larry Warford? The bench press alone clearly isn't going to pick the best player at a given position. How, then, do you use the numbers generated from the bench press?
The Bench Press is good for a few things. First, if scouts have questions about a player's upper body strength going into the draft, a solid performance in this drill can help to ease those questions. Second, as is the case with 40 times, the bench press can be used to differentiate between two closely ranked players. It can also tempt teams to take a chance on a player they otherwise wouldn't draft near the end of the draft if someone generates massive numbers. That being said, the bench press should not and generally will not propel a 7th round talent into the 1st round. That would be silly. The tape doesn't lie, and is always the BEST source of scouting intelligence for any player. Bench press data merely help to fill out the complete picture. Trust the tape, but let the Combine Data confirm your suspicions.
In closing, I'd like to issue a thank you, to www.weebly.com. This is the second time I've written this article tonight (hence the potentially slightly rushed feel), and now, at 1:42 AM, I'm posting it again, since the site chose to delete my original post when I clicked "post." Thanks weebly, for stealing an hour of sleep!
Best of luck to everyone in the combine this year, and to everyone watching, enjoy the show!
40 times are the most often quoted statistic from the NFL Combine. Scouts and analysts often talk about a 40 time making or breaking a player's draft standing. This year, for example, analysts are saying that Kevin White will be a top 10 pick....IF his 40 time is solid. What's all the hype about? Why 40 yards? Who cares about how fast a guy can run with no pads? How the system work? I'll try to answer your questions in this post.
Why 40 yards? 40 yards is the average distance a punt travels. Average hangtime on a punt is 4.5 seconds according to some models. Therefore, if a player runs a sub 4.5 40, he'll be at the spot of the ball before the punt gets there....in theory at least. There are flaws in this methodology. For example, the player must first shed a blocker. Second, 40 times are run without pads, and pads add weight and can slow a player down.
How is the 40 timed? The answer isn't as simple as one might think. For a great, detailed explanation of how it works, click here. Long story short, each player runs 2 40s. For each 40, the time is measured 3 different ways. Scouts often do their own timing and use the official time only as a reference. Hand timing (stopwatch and watching the player) often generated the fastest speeds, due to human error. Now the Combine uses a more automated system, which, while more accurate, is still imperfect in ways. Basically, timers are started by hand and ended electronically once the player hits the end of his run. This system is still error-prone, but is as close to being automated as currently possible.
If you're interested in what average 40 times look like, by position, here's some interesting data that I'll share with you from www.milehighreport.com. Unfortunately, offensive linemen speeds aren't included in this chart, but those aren't overly important from a scouting perspective. For WRs and CBs, average 40 time comes in at 4.48. RBs are slightly slower at 4.49, with Free Safeties at 4.53 and Strong Safeties at 4.55. Outside Linebackers come in at 4.65, and TEs average 4.70. Middle Linebackers tend to be fairly slow at 4.76, DEs clock in at 4.80, QBs at 4.93, and Defensive Tackles are the slowest, at 5.06. No huge surprises here.
What does a fast 40 time mean for a player's long-term NFL prospects? Not much. Since 1999, when electronic timing was introduced for the 40, 16 players have run a sub 4.30 40. Those players are Rondel Melendez, Chris Johnson, Jerome Mathis, Dri Archer, Stanford Routt, Marquise Goodwin, Champ Bailey, Jacoby Ford, DeMarcus Van Dyke, Fabian Washington, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Josh Robinson, Darrent Williams, Tye Hill, Yamon Figurs, and Darrius Heyward-Bey. Out of this list, not many huge names Yes, Chris Johnson has had a great career for a RB, and yes, Champ Bailey could be a future Hall of Famer. However, this list should show that a great 40 does not equate to a great NFL career. The reverse is true as well, a bad 40 time does not equate to a bad career.
What is the 40 actually good for then? Ideally, a player's 40 time can be useful when differentiating between two closely ranked players on a team's draft board. If player A and player B are rated very similarly by a team's scouting department, but player A runs a much faster 40, then the team would likely select player A. It should not be used to replace or significantly alter a team's analysis of a player. A player's true speed is what you see on the field, in pads. Not what you see at the combine in boxers While a player may run a really fast 40, how fast will he run in pads? That's the real question scouts need to consider.
So for all it's hype, a player's time isn't really THAT useful. Yes, teams pay attention to it, and yes, it gets way more attention than it should. At the end of the day, a player's 40 time should be one of the last pieces of the puzzle, and shouldn't make or break a team's analysis of a player. Instead, it should be viewed as one last piece of data when making really tough decisions in the draft room. A player's 40 time shouldn't change the round you select a guy in, but it could be the deciding factor between two very similar prospects. And in the NFL Draft, teams want as much data as they can get.
That's how the 40 works, and I hope this helps clear up any questions about the process! I'll be explaining the other drills as well in future posts, but since the 40 gets so much hype, this one comes first. Let's do some scouting!
The NFL Combine is coming! This is one of the final steps for players trying to make it into the NFL before the draft. After the Combine, the only things remaining are pro days, workouts, and interviews. I'll have more complete coverage coming throughout the week (starting with a breakdown and explanation of each drill used in the combine, and followed by coverage of combine story lines), but for now, I'll post the official schedule of events, per bleacherreport:

Now that the 2014 NFL Season has ended and the Senior Bowl and Shrine Game are over, it's time for an updated mock draft. I plan on ultimately building a complete, 7 round mock, and will be after the combine, since it'll be easier to project where players will ultimately fall at that point. For now, a first round Mock:
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With the first overall pick of the 2015 draft, the Buccaneers select QB Jameis Winston, Florida State. Tampa Bay has a big need at QB, and Winston is the best player at the position in this year's draft. Tampa Bay will gladly take him here.
2. Tennessee Titans. The Jets could trade up to #1 or #2 overall, and will need to if they want to get one of the top two QBs in the draft. They don't in this mock, and the Titans upgrade their glaring hole at QB with Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars could go a number of directions with this pick. They could use some new defensive talent, but Blake Bortles would love a true #1 WR to throw to. They could go Amari Cooper here. However, Leonard Williams is just too good of a talent to pass up. The Jaguars will select Leonard Williams, DE, USC with this pick.
4. Oakland Raiders. The Raiders also need a receiver, and would love Amari Cooper. They need a solid #1 WR, among other things. Lucky for them, Cooper falls to them, and Carr gets a new toy. The pick? Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama.
5. Washington Redskins. The Redskins need help on their O-line, and one of the best offensive line prospects in the league is on the board. They nab him, adding Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa with this pick.
6. New York Jets. The Jets lost their shot at an elite QB prospect, and will wait until later in the draft or free agency to address the position. They also might like to add a WR that will stay healthy for an entire season. Harvin is good, but he has injury issues. Kevin White would make this WR corps scary, and any QB in this offense would be primed for success. The pick? WR Kevin White, West Virginia.
7. Chicago Bears. The Bears are transitioning to a 3-4 and need new defensive personnel to fill out their new system. They'll bypass on DT Danny Shelton and instead select OLB Randy Gregory, Nebraska.
8. Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons also need help on defense. They'll pull the trigger quickly here with some of the best defensive prospects in the draft still on the board. The pick? Shane Ray, DE, Missouri.
9. New York Giants. The Giants need help on defense. They'll opt for the best defensive tackle in the 2015 NFL draft. The pick? DT Danny Shelton, Washington.
10. St. Louis Rams. The Rams may consider moving on from Sam Bradford after this season. However, this season, the Rams will give him one more chance to prove he belongs as the starter. They could grab a WR here, but with La'El Collins, OT, LSU, on the board, they'll select him to protect their often-injured QB.
11. Minnesota Vikings. I'm projecting a move from Adrian Peterson here. If Peterson stays, the Vikings won't go RB here. However, if Adrian Peterson is gone, then the Vikings select Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin.
12. Cleveland Browns. Say it with me. The Cleveland Browns need a WR. The Cleveland Browns need a WR. THE CLEVELAND BROWNS NEED A WR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you listening? Even if the Browns front office refuses to acknowledge that need, I'm projecting them to pick a WR here. The pick? Devante Parker, WR, Louisville. Are you listening Cleveland? Get your QB a WR.
13. New Orleans Saints. The Saints need help on defense. With OLB Dante Fowler, Florida available, they'll tag him here. Expect them to grab a CB later in the draft.
14. Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins need help in a few spots. The could go WR here, or RB, or defensive back. They could go for Bud Dupree here, but with the best safety in the draft still on the board, they'll grab him. The pick? Landon Collins, SS, Alabama.
15. San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers need help in a few spots, but offensive line is a glaring hole. TJ Clemmings, OT, Pittsburgh will fall after a rough Senior Bowl week, and the 49ers will grab him here.
16. Houston Texans. The Texans are in a tough spot. They badly need a QB, but they draft too late to grab an elite prospect. When the second round hits, the second tier of QB prospects will also possibly be decimated. I could see the Texans trading back towards the end of the first round and taking a QB there, or they pull the trigger early and "reach" for one. That being said, they could also turn their defense into an elite unit with a few nice picks in this year's draft. They have that opportunity in this spot. I think they gamble and hope that a QB will fall to them in the second, and opt for Alvin "Bud" Dupree, OLB, Kentucky.
17. San Diego Chargers. The Chargers have a few holes. They could go CB here, or grab an offensive lineman, or a defensive tackle. If a solid DT prospect falls to them, they could bite. If a solid CB falls, they could bite. They'll have their choice of both here, and opt for CB Trae Waynes, Michigan State.
18. Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs need WRs that score TDs! They'll try to address that here, even though they could also opt for OL help. The pick? Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn, who had a strong showing at the Senior Bowl and has been compared to current Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe by some scouts.
19. Cleveland Browns. The Browns have already grabbed a WR in this draft, and may seek an upgrade at inside linebacker. While Denzel Perryman is the better prospect at the position in my opinion, scouts are high on Benardrick McKinney, ILB, Mississippi State.
20. Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles need secondary help. The could go a different direction here, such as trading up for Mariota, but if they stay, they'll grab the best defensive back on the board. They'll take CB Jalen Collins, LSU here.
21. Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals find themselves in a good position here, with top prospects available on both the defensive line and at linebacker. With Rey Maualuga in a contract year, the Bengals "reach" for one of the best inside linebackers in the draft to replace him, selecting Denzel Perryman, ILB, Miami.
22. Pittsburgh Steelers. Last year, the Steelers grabbed an outstanding LB in Ryan Shazier. Their front office can't believe their eyes with OLB Vic Beasley, Clemson, still on the board, and run to Goodell with the envelope holding their pick.
23. Detroit Lions. If N'damukong Suh leaves via free agency, expect a DT here. Suh will likely leave, so the Lions will grab Arik Armstead, DT, Oregon, one of the best DTs in the draft, here.
24. Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals opt to upgrade their already strong defensive unit here. The pick? Shaq Thompson, OLB, Washington.
25. Carolina Panthers. Cam Newton can be a great QB...when he has time to stay on his feet. The Panthers need to address their woefully bad offensive line play in the draft this year. They do, grabbing Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, Texas A&M.
26. Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens could use help in a few places. First, they could use help on defense. Second, if Torrey Smith leaves, they could grab a WR here. However, their biggest need right now is at running back. Thanks to injury, they'll have a shot at a guy that used to be projected as a top 10 pick. The pick? Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia.
27. Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys will likely keep Dez Bryant, who wants to stay with the team. That being said, they'll need to replace DeMarcus Ware after losing him as a cap casualty last season. They also need help at CB. However, the defensive line depth here is far too good to pass up, and the way the draft is falling here, the Cowboys have a chance at an elite prospect. They'll get one in Malcom Brown, DT, Texas.
28. Denver Broncos. Gary Kubiak likes Tight Ends. Peyton Manning likes throwing to tight ends. The Broncos may keep tight end Julius Thomas, but might opt for a nice hybrid WR/TE pick in this year's draft. The pick? WR/TE Devin Funchess, Michigan.
29. Indianapolis Colts. The Colts need help along the offensive line. With OT Andrus Peat, Stanford, still on the board, they'll get a good fit with fellow Stanford alum Andrew Luck. This pick is one of the steals of the draft.
30. Green Bay Packers. The Packers could have opted for a Lb here, but the top inside linebackers are off the board. At that point they either jump on an OLB/pass rusher like Kikaha or Orchard, or go DT. I think they lean towards one of the best DTs in the draft, and select Carl Davis, DT, Iowa.
31. Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks need a wide receiver. They could go another position here, but I think the Seahawks jump on a WR in a stacked class here. My guess looking at the board? Jaelen Strong, WR, Arizona State.
32. New England Patriots. The Patriots have a few very solid defensive tackle prospects staring them in the face at 32 overall. They also need help at CB with Revis potentially leaving after this season. The defensive tackle depth is better here though, so the Patriots go DT. The pick? Jordan Phillips, DT/NT, Oklahoma.
