Biggest winners and losers for Day 4 of the Scouting Combine

Troy CB Blace Brown was one of my favorite players in the 2019 NFL Draft, but today he hurt his draft stock. He was already considered a late round pick, but a 4.75 forty is going to crush him. He needs a way better pro day.

The NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis has come to an end, and the final day showcased the defensive backs. There were some super fast players on Day 4 and a few that should have stayed at home. We wanted to break down the biggest winners and losers from day four of the Combine. So enough talking, let’s get to the winners and losers.


Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia – When you hear about workout warriors, Juan Thornhill is that guy. If you are not aware of him, you will be after you see his numbers. The dude is a FREAK. He had an 11’9 broad jump, a 44 inch vertical, 21 reps of 225, and a 4.42 forty. Remember his name and YouTube his film, because his stock is soaring right now.

Zedrick Woods, S, Ole Miss – A 4.29? OH MY LORD, this kid is a freak. That is ridiculous for a safety. He can cover practically anyone, and that is going to be a huge asset for him. I did not have to see anything else in his workout, because playing safety with that kind of speed allows him to have some flaws. That is just gross!

Greedy Williams, CB, LSU – The man is fast, he ran a 4.37 and that was all I needed to see. He is the best cornerback in the draft, and he is playing at DBU. This kid solidified a top 10 spot for me today. He did not need to do any other drills because his film is amazing.

Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State: The top safety prospect in the class shined and proved his No. 1 status with a solid workout in Indy. Abram posted a 4.45-second 40 and knocked out 16 reps on the bench press. He is a day 1 starter.


Blace Brown, CB, Troy University – I was high on Blace Brown going into the Combine, but his forty is going to be very hard to overcome. He was the slowest cornerback at the event, running a 4.75 forty. To take that into perspective last year the slowest forty was a 4.70 and that was Jamarcus King of South Carolina who is currently in the CFL. I hope Brown runs a faster forty at his pro day.

Montre Hartage, CB, Northwestern – While his testing times were not that great, this kid is a ball hawk. He ran a 4.68 forty, and only benched 225, 9 times, but he seems to always be around the ball. He had 13 pass break-ups in 12 games last season, so QB’s did not like going to his side of the ball. He just struggled a bit with the workout stuff.

Joejuan Williams, CB, Vanderbilt: The big cornerback from Vandy was flying up draft boards, until his performance at the Combine. Williams ran a slow 4.64 40 time. Williams was being talked about by some as a first round guy. I cannot see it with a 4.6 forty. He better practice for his pro day.
