NFL Draft NFL Combine Notebook: Tracking WR Targets Published 6 months ago on March 4, 2019 By Alan Saunders 1shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment EmailOn Friday, the wide receivers took the podium at the 2019 NFL Combine, and with that came news that the Steelers had met or planned to meet with at least five of the top receivers in the draft class. On Saturday, Arizona State’s N’Keal Henry was added to that list, giving Kevin Colbert and company a half dozen prime targets to track as they went through the workouts on Saturday. Marquise Brown (Oklahoma) isn’t running, as he’s still recovering from foot surgery, but here’s the results from the workouts as the receivers took the field at Lucas Oil Stadium. 40-YARD DASH D.K. Metcalf 4.33 seconds* Deebo Samuel 4.48 seconds* A.J. Brown 4.49 seconds N’Keal Harry 4.53 seconds Riley Ridley 4.58 seconds* *-unofficial time VERTICAL JUMP Riley Ridley 30.5 inches A.J.

Metcalf 7.38 seconds 20-YARD SHUTTLE Riley Ridley 4.28 seconds D.K. Metcalf 4.50 seconds BENCH PRESS N’Keal Harry 27 reps D.K. Metcalf 27 reps A.J. Brown 19 reps Deebo Samuel 15 reps Riley Ridley 13 reps ANALYSIS It looks like the Steelers certainly have a type, as most of the receivers are big, physical, and with straight-line speed, a combination that is easily projectable as an outside deep threat at the NFL level. That’s interesting, because that’s not the kind of receiver Antonio Brown is at 5-foot-10 and more known for quickness than strength. But speed trumps all at the receiver position, and Brown certainly has that. For comparison’s sake, he ran a 4.47-second 40-yard dash at his combine. NEXT UP The Steelers have or will also meet with a pair inside linebacker targets in LSU’s Devin White and Alabama’s Mack Wilson, according to Joe Rutter of the Tribune-Review. 1shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:AJ BrownDeebo SamuelDK MetcalffeaturedMarquise BrownN'Keal HenryNFL CombineRiley RidleySteelers Up Next Steelers Weighing Plenty of Options at Michigan Pro Day Don't Miss Steelers Looking for Early-Round WR Alan Saunders Continue Reading Advertisement You may like Steelers All 91: C Patrick Morris Injury Updates: Benny Snell, Anthony Chickillo Evaluated; Devin Bush Absence ‘Precaution’ From the Locker Room: Rudolph Critical of his Play, Hilton Compliments Burns Steelers Overcome Sloppy, Delayed Start to Top Chiefs, 17-7 FINAL: Steelers 17, Kansas City Chiefs 7 Players, Coaches from around NFL Attend Darryl Drake’s Funeral Click to comment Leave a Reply This comment form is under antispam protection This comment form is under antispam protection Subscribe Notify of new follow-up comments new replies to my comments Steelers Now in Your Mailbox!
