NFL Combine 2018 Results: Sunday Highlights, Reactions And Recap

Offense played a major role in the first two days of this year’s NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, but on Sunday it was the defense’s turn to shine.

NFL Combine 2018 results and highlights

Shaquem Griffin of UCF stole the show in the series of drills. The Knights linebacker outshone other defenseman from this year’s draft class like Bradley Chubb, Arden Key and Harold Landry.

Griffin ran a 4.38-second 40-yard dash, the fastest time for the position at the Combine since 2003.

Unsurprisingly, fans on social media went wild after his performance:

Doctors amputated Griffin’s left hand when he was four years old, the result of a condition that had developed before he was born. Despite this, the linebacker recorded 18.5 sacks in his last two years at UCF.

Griffin also amazed by benching 20 225-pound reps on Saturday with the help of a prosthetic on his left hand.

Meanwhile, Chubb ran a 4.65-second 40 and jumped 36 inches in the vertical leap. Here are some other stats the NFL revealed:

Boston College defensive end Landry ran slightly faster than Chubb (4.64-second 40-yard dash) and tied Chubb in the vertical jump. He also hit 119 inches in the broad jump.

Here is a clip of Landry working on DE drills alongside Ohio State’s Sam Hubbard:

Also impressive on Sunday was Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, who cemented his status as a top-ten prospect by recording 4.54 in the 40-yard dash. Edmunds proved to be an extraordinarily versatile defenseman at the Combine:
