Edge Rusher Montez Sweat Literally Beat Odell Beckham Jr. in Combine Sprints

Montez Sweat, a 6-foot-6, 260-pound defensive end out of Mississippi State, ran a 4.41 in the 40-yard dash, setting a modern record (since 2003) at the NFL Combine among all lineman.

Jelks, the former Oregon Ducks defensive lineman and Hollins, a former Oregon linebacker, will show what they can do in on-field drills during today's session of the 2019 National Football League scouting combine. The former Virginia Cavalier ran a 4.42 40-yard dash and led all players at the combine with a 44-inch vertical. The broad jump and cone drill numbers were middle of the pack among edge defenders, but the 20-yard shuttle was the second best time among all edge players behind only Chase Winovich (4.11) of MI.

Every NFL team is always looking for an elite edge rusher and in the 2019 NFL draft, perhaps none are better than Kentucky's Josh Allen.

Africa Command has announced six air strikes in recent days that it said killed a total of 83 militants since February 23. Rescue workers compared the carnage to a 2017 truck bombing that killed over 500 people.


Amani Oruwariye was the last Penn Stater to complete his workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine, but that didn't stop him from balling out. Running a 4.83-second 40-yard dash at that size was awfully impressive and just shows the quickness that comes along with Williams' elite power. Campbell's track background helped make his 40 time foreseeable, and he even guaranteed a fast time when speaking Friday. He was tied for fourth in the SEC in sacks and also forced a fumble.

Ryan Bates made a nice case for himself at the Combine by finishing in the top 10 of four different drills.

Tests include sprints, bench press repetitions and jumps, as well as cognitive assessments such as the Wonderlic Test to evaluate problem-solving aptitude.
