Meanwhile, Sweat, the former Mississippi State defensive lineman, made his workout look like it was, well, no sweat.

Best Bench: Iosua Opeta, Class of 2014, unranked, 39 reps at 225 lbs.

Now team officials will spend the next six-plus weeks picking apart game film and combine performances, attending pro day, doing additional background and medical checks while bringing in players for formal interviews before making draft-weekend decisions.


Also Sunday, Alabama D-lineman Quinnen Williams ran a 4.83 40-yard dash.

The 40-yard dash always receives the headlines, but the more important drills for pass rushers are the 10-yard split and the three-cone drill. Von Miller (at 246 pounds) ran a 1.59.

The 2019 edition of the event is taking place at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis and concludes on Monday, as college football players perform various physical and mental tests in a bid to impress NFL scouts. Here are four players who dominated the scouting combine and could be potential targets for the Raiders in the first round. Zedrick Woods, the standout Rebels defensive back, just ran the fastest 40-yard dash, not just for his position group, but for the entire combine in Indianapolis. "You know, it's just another blessed opportunity just to get drafted by the Cleveland Brown organization so I'm gonna take it one step at a time right now".
