- SEVERAL DB’S WERE VERY IMPRESSIVE ON LAST DAY OF NFL COMBINE -
 
It was a cluster of fast times this morning at the NFL scouting combine with the defensive backs hiting the field. Some of the times at Lucas Oil Stadium were even faster than anticipated, especially  Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner. Milliner clocked a 4.31 and a 4.37 in the 40-yard dash, an impressive performance for a 6-foot, 200-pounder. This may cement his top-10 draft status as the consensus top cornerback in the draft, even though Milliner dropped passes during his drills where he showed good footwork.  Milliner has upcoming shoulder surgery, but is still expected to go as high as the Detroit Lions’ fifth overall pick of the first round. Meanwhile, Florida safety Matt Elam ran a 4.46 in the 40-yard dash. For such a hard-hitting prospect to run well, that should provide a boost to his already healthy draft stock. Elam also has looked sharp in the position-specific and agility drills. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock compared Elam to San Francisco 49ers Pro Bowl safety Donte Whitner. Elam bench pressed 225 pounds a respectable 17 times. Former LSU cornerback Tyrann “Honey Badger” Mathieu ran a 4.43 in the 40-yard dash and also displayed good hands and change-of-direction skills in workouts. Mathieu consistently drew praise from Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders, who was on the field for the drills. “I think I did good,” Mathieu told NFL Network. “I came into today extremely confident. I knew all along I was a natural athlete. Everything came easy today.” Mathieu’s worst moment at the combine was when he bench pressed 225 pounds just four times, suggesting that he hasn’t been hitting the weight room enough.
