Day 5

Bosa disappointed with 40 time

Joey Bosa said he was disappointed after running the 40-yard dash in 4.87 seconds, because he expected to run in the 4.6-4.7 range.

The former Ohio State defensive end said earlier this week he believes he can play in a 4-3 or 3-4 and is participating in both defensive line and linebacker drills.

Smith says he's the best player in draft

Jaylon Smith said Sunday he's the best player in this year's draft, but conceded his ongoing recovery from a knee injury is keeping him from proving as much at the combine.

Medical tests have reportedly led NFL teams to believe Smith will sit out the entire 2016 season. It's unclear whether the potential top-five pick will slip out of the first few rounds entirely.

Tapper, Ogbah blow away DL competition during 40

Charles Tapper and Emmanuel Ogbah set the pace during the defensive linemens' turn to run the 40-yard dash on Sunday.

Tapper was especially impressive, running an official time of 4.59 seconds. Both players' draft stocks should receive a bump, especially due to their great 10-yard split times.

The entire class of defensive linemen was impressive Sunday, showing scouts why they're considered the most talented positional class in recent memory.

Dodd appears to pull hamstring during 40

Kevin Dodd had a successful first attempt at the 40-yard dash on Sunday, running a 4.86-second unofficial time, but his second attempt may have been more consequential.

Dodd pulled up toward the end of the run, appearing to reach for his hamstring, and didn't participate in the positional drills.

DBs meet the media

While front-seven players go through on-field drills, defensive backs will undergo medical and psychological evaluations, get measured on the bench press, and meet the media for the first time.

Darron Lee impresses with fast 40, huge broad jump

Ohio State linebacker Darron Lee impressed scouts by running the fastest 40 among linebackers on Sunday. Lee also jumped 11-feet-1-inch in the broad jump, proving himself worthy of first round consideration.
