Oklahoma's Orlando Brown runs 40-yard dash at NFL Combine

Oklahoma's Orlando Brown runs 40-yard dash at NFL Combine

Barkley is set to run the 40-yard dash on Friday afternoon.

Sweat could have a similar combine to Clowney's, where drills that measure explosive power (40-yard dash, 10-yard split, vertical jump and broad jump) fall under Sweat's strengths, while he's average at the three-cone drill, which measures flexibility. Saquon Barkley is the top prize in this year's draft, but there are other talented backs available as well.

"With a 41" vertical and ability to bench press more than his own weight 29 times, it's safe to say Barkley is who we thought he was. However, his performance at the combine has only helped his standing in the draft class. For comparison's sake, running back Saquon Barkley did 29.

Heading into the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine former Oklahoma offensive tackle Orlando Brown was the 2018 NFL draft's No. 1 player at his position.

Barkley measured an even 6-foot tall and weighed in at 233 pounds earlier in the week. For comparison, the National Football League did its fun "simulcast" comparison on Barkley, which showed him running alongside Saints' Alvin Kamara, Jags' Leonard Fournette and Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliot. Barkley joins Vernon Davis as the only players over 230 pounds to run a 4.40 or quicker in the 40 while also recording a vertical jump over 40 inches in the combine since 2003. While there are several intriguing quarterback prospects, Barkley might be the safest prospect in the draft, especially if he's put behind a strong offensive line.
