3. Jerick McKinnon - Running Back - Georgia Southern

Football News

The Wall Street Journal, although not noted for their sports coverage, broke down the numbers form every player at the combine, and said that nobody had a better workout then Jerick McKinnon.

That's awfully high praise for a player who was a quarterback in a run-first option offense at Georgia.

He rushed for over 1,000 yards each of the last two seasons and is still learning the nuances of the running back position, but with great speed, 4.41 40-time, power, led all running backs with 32 bench press reps, and agility, ranking in the top 4 for the 3-Cone and 20-yard Shuttle for running backs, he has all of the tools to become a good player at the next level.

He'll need a situation where he can be brought along slowly for a year or two with an established runner ahead of him, but he could be one of the best sleepers in the draft.
