Day 3 of #NFLCombine drills is nearly here!

Ziggy Ansah will be 1st up today... He should destroy the 40 and jumps
Some of these DL/OLs are very impressive. This is definitely a trenches draft.
Jordan looks like a WR. Kid needs to add some weight in a hurry.
Floyd might take just Star's spot as the Top DT
In the last 3 years, the only top rushers under that weight are von miller and harrison. Personally I eliminate harrison from that stat as he is only 6'0, so for him to weigh 240-245 lbs at six feet even, shows that he is far from thin.
Both Mingo and Jordan weigh less then 250 while both are over 6'4 in height. That is extremely "light in the ass" for lack of a better term.
If you want jordan for his versatility and to have him in coverage 30% of the time, and rushing as a 4-3 end on obvious passing downs, then ok, but overall, you simply cannot count on a player like mingo to be a 3-4 OLB as he would get absolutely steamrolled vs the run.
Ansah, at 6'6 270 has a build to play with his hand on the ground but also as a stand up OLB who can actually use his strength to hold off a blocker ands et the edge.
The issue with ansah isnt "is he a good fit for us"? The problem is with star and jones medical issues, and no top QB, will ansah even make it to 9.
Ziggy looked good in the crossover drills thus far, not as smooth as Jordan, but Jordan used to be a TE and is 30lbs lighter. People will need to be patient with Ansah.
Ziggy looks great out there, and surprisingly more fluid than I thought he would be.
I'm now sold on him.
Unfortunately, I don't think he'll make it to 9
Who is this Margus Hunt?
Pretty pedestrian combine numbers for Damontre Moore.
