The first cycle of the 2015 NFL Combine came to a close yesterday, which means B.J. Finney has finished his job interview and headed home.
Unfortunately, we don't currently have any video of Finney's skill workouts. What we do have is his official measurables:
40-yard dash: 5.25
Not a bad time -- 17th among all offensive linemen -- but not outstanding. Hobart OL Ali Marpet actually broke the five second barrier.
Bench press: 20 reps
This was a disappointing result. For comparison, Miami OL Ereck Flowers popped 37 reps.
Vertical jump: 24 inches
Compared to other offensive linemen, not a good result. But it's the vertical jump. Not sure anyone really cares.
Broad jump: 99 inches, or 8'3"
22nd overall, so not too bad... but again, who cares how far a meat shield can jump?
20-yard shuttle: 4.76 seconds
Middling time. The field ranged from 4.33 to 5.15, so B.J. was right in the middle of the pack.
Three-cone drill: no time reported
We'll have to be honest here: no idea why. A lot of linemen have no reported time for this drill, so assuming Finney tweaked something and skipped the drill would be irresponsible speculation without solid justification. The combine results may just be incomplete.
60-yard shuttle: no time reported
No times are reported for any of the offensive linemen for this drill.
A reminder that starting at 8am CT today, coverage continues on the NFL Network. Tyler Lockett is part of Group 5, meaning you can probably hold off until about 10-11am to start watching.
