With the men in tights descending upon Indianapolis for the 2019 NFL Scouting Merge, it’s entertaining to glance back again and see how recent Ravens performed back again in the working day.
Accomplishment at the Merge can be an indication of excellent matters to come in the NFL (and vice versa), but not usually.
Have a glance at some of the Ravens’ results:
2003 – OLB Terrell Suggs
Suggs’ 40-garden dash at the Merge gave some talent evaluators pause. He ran it in the dragging 4.8-second selection. He had an ordinary vertical jump (33 inches) and just 19 bench press reps of 225 lbs. The ordinary is close to 25 for defensive linemen. Suggs slid a small bit in the draft and was scooped up by the Ravens at decide on No. 10. His speed hasn’t verified to be a problem in the NFL.
Weddle entered the Merge with a reputation as a challenging-doing work leader and college playmaker. His all round athleticism was possibly his largest question mark. Weddle proved himself, putting up the fifth-speediest 40-garden dash among the safeties (4.48 seconds). He had the fourth-most effective a few-cone drill at 6.78 seconds and third-most effective 20-garden shuttle (4.12 seconds).
Smith was touted as a actual physical specimen and lived up to the hype. He was tied with the third-most bench press reps (27) at cornerback. Even with his huge dimensions for the position, he was tied for the seventh-speediest 40-garden dash (4.46).
