For the Rams, scouting a prospect is broken down into three different phases - what they have seen on game tape, getting to know the players in person through private meetings, and matching their film with various positional drills at the Combine. During on-field drills, Allen (6-5, 237) was very accurate in the throwing sessions, and was easily the most impressive of the quarterbacks who threw. Chris Campbell (Central-Phenix City), Carlton Davis (Auburn), Minkah Fitzpatrick (Alabama), Ronnie Harrison (Alabama), Jamarcus King (Blount), Stephen Roberts (Opelika, Auburn) and Levi Wallace (Alabama) also participated. He put up only 14 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, which is about half of the average at his position. The only issue with Barkley is that he is a running back.
Hyperbole? Maybe. But when the Los Angeles Rams traded for Marcus Peters, they weren't trading for a guy who simply fills a need, they got a game changer who does just that-changes the game.
On Sunday, Arizona's Dane Cruikshank and Wisconsin's Natrell Jamerson tied for the best showing among the defensive backs. He rounded all that off with a 4.65 second 40 and 20 repetitions on the bench press. His 40-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump are off the charts for a man 215 pounds.

60-yard shuttle: Only 10 of the 70 defensive backs took on the longer shuttle, with Maddox the fastest to finish in 10.72 seconds.
Harrison jumped 34 inches in the vertical leap and cleared 120 inches in the broad jump. Mata'afa managed only 31.5 inches in the vertical, 9 feet in the broad jump and 7.24 in the three-cone - not bad numbers, but not what evaluators were hoping for.
King, who played collegiately at SC, participated in only one of the measurable drills.
It was quite a fast combine indeed because Jackson, Ward and Nickerson became only the third, fourth and fifth defensive backs to run the 40-yard dash in 4.32 or faster in the last decade, according to NFL Research. He has the prototypical size of an National Football League cornerback, displayed above-average speed (4.35 in the 40) and quickness (6.78 in the 3-cone drill) all while looking as confident and athletic as anyone in the defensive back positional drills. At 6-4 and 256 pounds with 34-inch arms, the Idaho native ran a 4.65 40-yard dash with a 39.5-inch vertical, 6.88 three-cone and 4.15 short shuttle. There's no run-up involved.
