Orlando Brown, first-round prospect, is having a very bad combine

The 6-foot-6, 252-pound Gesicki impressed with a 41-inch vertical jump, which is tied for fourth-best among tight ends at the NFL Combine since at least 2006, according to NBC Sports reporter Josh Norris. "He matched Barkley's 29 reps on the bench Thursday, and was second in the broad jump (10'8"), which helps measure explosiveness.

After a rough day on the turf of Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Brown's draft stock is now much more fluid. That made him one of the heaviest running backs at this year's Combine, yet his frame seems to contain nothing but muscle.

"When are you ever going to watch Orlando Brown run 40 yards down the field?"

Gesicki faced the press at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine on Friday afternoon, and the New Jersey native proved an engaging interview.

The Denver Broncos, however, were not going to let him get out of Indianapolis without meeting with him. Brown then had a broad jump of just 6 feet, 10 inches, a vertical leap of 19 1/2 inches and was being yelled at by National Football League coaches, who thought he was loafing during drills. As a junior in 2017 he rushed for 1,271 yards on 217 carries (5.9 yards per carry) and 18 touchdowns, while adding 632 yards and three touchdowns on 54 receptions (11.7 yards per catch).

Barkley not only put up more bench press repetitions than some offensive linemen, but showed an impressive jumping and sprinting ability.

He's one of the rare running backs who absolutely does deserve consideration with the top pick.

He was defended by former teammate Baker Mayfield. We'll also look ahead to Day 2 of workouts, as the quarterbacks, receivers and tight ends will participate in testing and drills on Saturday.

The best 40-yard dash performance among offensive line so far comes from West Georgia's Desmond Harrison, who ran a 4.90. These workouts will contain a variety of drills, including the famous 40-yard dash. "Fournette had a 4.51 40 and a 28.5" vertical. He could be a good starting running back for them.
