Pre-Combine Movers and Shakers

A quick look at some NFL Draft prospects moving up and down draft boards before the NFL Combine.

According to Draft Insider, South Florida teammates Jason Pierre-Paul and Jerome Murphy have been hitting the clubs as much as they have been hitting the gym. Pierre-Paul will probably put in a good enough showing at the combine to make teams forget about the poor work ethic, but Jerome Murphy might be costing himself some money.

Ryan Matthews (RB, Fresno State) is putting up some incredible times, breaking the 4.4 barrier consistently. If Matthews puts up a 4.35 at the Combine, it could vault him into the 1st round. The Patriots would love to see him available in the 2nd round.

Ndamunkong Suh (DL, Nebraska) challenged Dexter McCluster to a race in the Pro Agility Run (5-10-5). Suh ran a respectable 4.2, but McCluster’s sub 4.0 was too much for the former Cornhusker.

Brandon Ghee (CB, Wake Forest) was timed running a 4.31 – although his Senior Bowl practices didn’t show that Ghee was able to fully use that speed. Ghee closed well, but consistently was out of position.

Ricky Sapp (DE/OLB, Clemson) says that his knee feels fine and that he has put on 10 lbs of muscle – bulking up to 255. Sapp also states that he is studying hard for the Wonderlic test.
