Most impressions about NFL Draft prospects are formed or finalized at the NFL Combine, which seems to be enough to send draft stock either rising or sinking for the remainder of the pre-draft season. Still, some players are finding out that it’s not too late to change their trajectory, with Pro Days still very much a factor.
In light of those, and a month removed from the Combine, we’re getting a much clearer idea of whose stock is really on the rise. Here are ten of the hottest prospects in the NFL Draft who have done themselves plenty of favors with their pre-draft workouts and interviews.
Devin White, LB, LSU
White made headlines at the Combine with a 4.42 40 time, and he understandably opted against running it again at LSU’s Pro Day. He hardly needed to, as he looked to be his usual tidy self during positional workouts. While questions linger about his lack of pass rushing, he’s a tremendous athlete who looks like he could be working his way into the top ten of draft boards. That’s in no small part because of his successful series of workouts.
