You know, those are really freaking good numbers, especially when you consider his size.

Jerick McKinnon put on a show at the Scouting Combine

We noted before the Combine that former Georgia Southern quarterback Jerick McKinnon would work out with the running backs in Indianapolis as he attempts to show NFL teams that he can play a different position as a pro. So how did McKinnon do?

He did as well as any player at any position, at least in terms of showing off his raw athletic ability. McKinnon ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash, had a 40.5-inch vertical jump, broad-jumped 11 feet, and bench pressed 225 pounds a whopping 32 times. The Wall Street Journal crunched all the numbers from the Combine and concluded that no player at any position did better than McKinnon in all the various measurements of strength, speed and athletic ability.

Of course, football is not the Olympic decathlon, and just because McKinnon can run and jump and lift a lot of weight, that doesn’t mean he can succeed in the NFL. But NFL Network’s Mike Mayock said McKinnon showed off exactly the kind of measurables that NFL teams are looking for in a running back.

“As far as the running backs, I think McKinnon from Georgia Southern is a real wild card in this draft,” Mayock said. “He had a big day.”

The 5-foot-9, 209-pound McKinnon, who ran an old-school triple-option offense at Georgia Southern, said he hopes NFL teams recognize that he can pick up yardage with his legs, whether he’s lining up at quarterback or running back.

“I love to make plays,” McKinnon said. “I can make defenders miss and I feel like I have good balance and patience. I can make a cut and get north-south real quick.”

Before the Combine, McKinnon looked like he’d probably have to go the undrafted free agent route if he were going to make it to the NFL. Now McKinnon seems like he has a real shot at getting drafted. He’s just the kind of player who can boost his draft stock at the Combine, and he made the most of his opportunity.

He was a QB but he rushed for 1050 yards this season and 3899 over 4 seasons.

Their offense is weird. Hard to judge his instincts as a runner. His speed and burst does show up on tape though, there's no denying that.

The 2014 Speed Score Leaders

Damien Williams (4.45-40, 222 pounds)
Williams’ listed weight prior to his senior year was 208 pounds, but he ran his fast forty at 222 pounds. The 5-11 running back has always demonstrated good straight-line speed. Give him a good crease and and Williams can make a defensive back or linebacker pay if they approach with a bad angle.

The former Sooner is a one-cut runner with patience and skill to find the cutback lane in a zone-blocking system. Technically sound, Williams demonstrates good pad level and second effort with his legs after contact. He even displays a nice-looking straight-arm.

The technique is all there, but the strength is lacking. On film, the pad level, leg drive, and stiff arm all lack the explosion and strength to make a difference. Even his blocking lacks a sound punch despite approaching opponents with a good angle.

My take on Williams entering the 2013 season was that if he could improve his strength, he could become a dangerous runner between the tackles. On paper, Williams has all the tools to become a premiere prospect.

Williams added the weight and still has the speed. Knowing these two things, it would seem logical that he’s now a premiere prospect.

I’m not convinced. Andre Williams is big, strong, and ran a good enough forty that his Speed Score ranks him a notch below these top four, but his film is underwhelming. Boston College’s Williams does not break a lot of tackles unless he earns a huge hole and has a sizable, unfettered start downhill.

Damien Williams had bigger holes to run through on a regular basis at Oklahoma than Andre Williams had at Boston College. Even if he didn’t depress his draft stock by getting kicked off the team in late November, I need to see that Williams’ size is translating to power.

If it is, Williams is the best back of the quartet and capable of earning this sleeper moniker. If it doesn’t, Williams has the skills to earn a roster spot and contribute because of his speed, acceleration, agility, skill as a receiver, and potential as a blocker.

The reason for Williams’ dismissal and how the running back approaches football and life moving forward will be the biggest deciding factor of him even earning a chance to prove his worth on a field.

Jerick McKinnon (4.41-40, 209 pounds)
McKinnon is from my part of the country. A former star at Sprayberry High near Atlanta, Georgia arrived at Georgia Southern as an option quarterback and didn’t switch to running back until his junior year.

It hasn’t stopped scouts from knowing about him. Before the Senior Bowl, a scout told me that his team expected McKinnon to put on a show in workouts and they loved his athleticism.

I was skeptical. I had seen a few of McKinnon’s games and the best display of speed I had witnessed against top competition was this option-pitch to the left flat against Florida.

As I told my colleague, the first 20-25 yards looks like McKinnon runs a 4.4; the final half looks like he ran out of gas. The scout told me his team had McKinnon at 4.4, that he can lift the gym (his 32 reps on the bench and 40.5-inch vertical were among the top two on the board), and they love him as a special teams player.

The fact that this team’s scouts believe McKinnon has the potential to contribute as a third-down back -– if not grow into more -– was enough to keep a close eye on the runner at the Senior Bowl. Georgia Southern’s option game doesn’t provide a great setting for evaluating a runner’s vision between the tackles and the practices at Mobile would at least afford a glimpse into McKinnon’s initial decision-making.

I left the practices more optimistic about McKinnon as a runner between the tackles. He didn’t try to bounce plays outside at the drop of a hat. He often made good moves in the crease like this play I found of him against the Citadel.

What I found most encouraging is that he ran with his eyes -– he could set up blockers and make defenders miss creases when asked to do so. There are still concerns about his footwork because he often loses balance when he attempts a dramatic cut or bend.

McKinnon has everything a coach wants from a running back in terms of physical dimensions and talents. The question is if the back can develop a conceptual game commensurate with the NFL.

Jonathan Dwyer may not be the back fans expected when the Steelers drafted the Georgia Tech star that thrived as the fullback in an option-style offense. However, Dwyer has proven that his limitations are rooted in work ethic, not a lack of vision.

Scouts love the idea of players like McKinnon. He offers enough to an organization as a contributor on special teams that he’s the classic "safe" late-round pick even if he never pans out as a running back.

Tyler Gaffney (4.49-40, 220 pounds)
The former baseball player and Stanford Cardinal is a fascinating player to evaluate. He played on an offense that used some of the tightest run splits seen in a modern college football game.

Throw in the fact that Gaffney runs behind multiple tight end sets where the formation often has no receivers on the field, and the Stanford ground game has the collective look of a steamroller: slow, powerful, and methodical.

Knowing Gaffney’s timed speed and watching him perform at Stanford, it left me wondering if this running back was the equivalent of a Pagani Huayra stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic. There’s not much room for him to run on these tight-crease plays where patience and power appear to take on much weightier role than speed.

Boston College is one of the few teams that also have these types of line splits for its offense. Considering that I was also underwhelmed with Andre Williams’ potential as anything more than a contributor rather than a long-term starter, it is possible that the common denominator is this offense that may disguise what I’m used to seeing from runners.

Of course, Stepfan Taylor and Toby Gerhart ran in this offense and I believe I had a good bead on them. If I am correct with my assessment of Gaffney, then my lack of enthusiasm stems from his stride and footwork.

The Stanford back runs with compact movement even when he’s in the open field. He’s a tight runner with his stride, his change of direction, and his decision-making.

He’s strong, but he’s not punishing and his pad level is often too high to attack defenses and win collisions except when he’s the driver of that big red steamroller with upwards of nine men at the line of scrimmage slow-rolling everything in its path.

George Atkinson (4.48-40, 218 pounds)
Get Atkinson in space or give him a well-blocked corner and this six-foot-two rocket booster can beat angles in the open field and flash the strength to run through tackles. He also exhibits some fancy footwork to setup defenders with a bend or dip away from the pursuit angle.

Where Atkinson struggles is the ordinary plays where pad level, sudden feet, and hard change of direction earn running backs the yards that move chains. Atkinson doesn’t run through a lot of tackles or push the pile with his size unless he has generated enough downhill momentum to reach top speed.

His style looks like a blend of DeMarco Murray and Darren McFadden -– a fast, run-bender with size. If he can develop more consistent pad level and find and exploit smaller creases with press-and-cut patience, then he could be a late bloomer.

Much of what Atkinson does well is also a reasonable description of Charles Sims of West Virginia –- a runner who appears a little lower on this list, but has a much better overall game. Where Sims succeeds that Atkinson fails is the footwork. The Notre Dame back sees the players he needs to avoid, but lacks the feet to avoid penetration.

He’s the least impressive of these four backs. However, there is potential for Atkinson as a return specialist.

It's the homer in me, and the fact that the kid is an amazing story, but don't sleep on Henry Josey. If he's still there at our second sixth round pick, grab him.

Charles
Davis
McKnight
Josey
Sherman

I'd take that.
