Movers and shakers at the NFL combine
By Gregg Rosenthal
Rotoworld.comPosted: Feb.27, 2007, 11:34 am EST
The NFL Scouting Combine is more pressure-packed than the biggest bowl game. Imagine taking a job interview with millions of dollars at stake on national television. Now imagine doing it in your underwear.

The Combine is especially nerve-wracking because it's not about football. The NFL asks the prospects to perform unfamiliar drills and answer interview questions speed-dating style. The results could mean a round or two on draft day.

Here's my list of the winners and losers out of the offensive players at the Combine.

Risers

Calvin Johnson, Georgia Tech WR - Johnson is a winner just for showing up. Receivers at 239 pounds with gigantic production and a spotless record do exist. The scouting dream is the best player in the country, and it should not be a.ssumed that he'll last until Tampa with the fourth overall pick.

Marc Serota/Getty ImagesCalvin Johnson was one of the mega-stars of the this year's combine.

Greg Olsen, Miami TE - There was some debate about who the top tight end in the draft was: Olsen or Arizona State's Zach Miller. Debate over. Olsen not only ran a 4.51 (Miller, 4.78); he looked fluid and explosive in every drill. He reportedly can't block a lick and may line up wide half the time, but that's good news for fantasy leaguers.

Chris Henry, Arizona RB - As if the world needs another Chris Henry. His lack of playing time in college is a big concern, but the NFL should find it easy to get excited about a 230-pound fullback/tailback who can run in the 4.3s.

Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma RB - This was a Combine when elite players cemented their stock. Peterson, Johnson, Wisconsin T Joe Thomas and Clemson DE Gaines Adams fall into that category. Peterson's speed and explosiveness were on display throughout the day, including his 4.38 40 time and second-place showing in the vertical leap.

Steve Smith, USC WR - Smith played in the shadow of Dwayne Jarrett, but showed that he is faster than originally believed. His route running and 4.44 speed could push him into the second round.

John Beck, BYU QB - By all accounts, he shined in the passing drills. The murky third quarterback slot in this draft hasn't cleared up whatsoever. Beck may have thrown his name into the mix.

Antonio Pittman, Ohio State RB - His 4.4 40 was better than expected. His other drill times were solid. At first, I wasn't sold on this class of running backs. But there is a decent group of second-tier picks such as Pittman and Darius Walker to watch. It won't be as deep as last year's class, but it's not a terrible year to have a mid-first round pick in dynasty leagues.

Robert Meachem, Tennessee WR - Still has a chance to be taken in the first round after his 4.39 and a solid afternoon in the drills.

Anthony Gonzalez, Ohio State WR - A heady, route-running player that seemed destined for the slot in the NFL, Gonzalez showed a lot of short-area quickness. His 4.44 was expected, but his times in the short shuttle and three-cone drill were among the best at the Combine.

Jason Hill, Washington State WR - He impressed us at the Senior Bowl and opened some eyes with a 4.32. He was expected to be in the 4.5s. Extremely productive early in his career, Hill had a poor senior season because of injuries. His skills, including route running and intelligence, transfer well to the NFL. He could be in the second round.

Sliding

Zach Miller, Arizona State - Miller is known as a sure-handed receiver, but he was dropping balls all over the place at the Combine. His 4.78 time compared to Greg Olsen didn't help him either. Miller is still the second best tight end in the draft and his game tape should get him selected in the second round.

Dwayne Jarrett, USC - He didn't run amidst reports that he was stuck in the 4.7 range in workouts before the Combine. Meanwhile, the rest of the tier of receivers behind Johnson enjoyed big days, including Tennessee's Robert Meachem, Ohio State's Gonzalez, South Carolina's Sidney Rice, and Jarrett's unheralded teammate Smith.

Gary Russell, Minnesota - Russell flunked out of Minnesota and was out of football last year and ran in the 4.8s. He said he would be around 4.5 and he could have fallen out of the draft.

Chansi Stuckey, Clemson - A smallish vertical threat with 4.61 speed isn't going to cut it. He started heading south at the Senior Bowl and this won't help.

Rich Eisen, NFL Network - His 6.43, albeit in a full suit and Xenia lace-ups, was embarrassing. He strained a hamstring, adding injury to insult. He had a year to improve on his 6.2, yet apparently showed up out of shape. You have to question his motivation.
