Philadelphia Eagles: DK Metcalf worth look after NFL Combine

The question for Brian Burns coming into Sunday's NFL Combine workout in Indianapolis was whether the extra added weight he's packed on in recent months would slow him down.

At the start of the weekend Cats Illustrated gave you the roundup on the early NFL Combine action, from linebacker measurements to Benny Snell's testing.

Also Sunday, Alabama D-lineman Quinnen Williams ran a 4.83 40-yard dash. Two of the 2019 NFL Draft's top prospects, both of which could've immediately help Baltimore, are no longer realistic options at pick 22 overall.

A little more context? Simply put, he took care of business and made sure teams know that he's an athletic freak with serious potential, even if he wasn't always the biggest playmaker at MI.

He checked in bigger (close to 6'2, a surprise to some, and well over 230 pounds) than expected and ran a 4.62-second 40-yard dash, backing up the game speed that marked his tenure at Kentucky.

"The former TCU edge rusher was a top performer in several categories, posting a 4.62 40-yard dash, a 40-inch vertical and an 11'2" broad jump. He's likely to be a Day 2 pick, but he turned some heads with his well-rounded athleticism and could be creeping up the board for a few teams after this week.

"Metcalf, an Oxford native, checked in at 6'3" and 228 pounds.

Mississippi State defensive end Montez Sweat had to be smiling after his 40 time at the National Football League combine.

Ole Miss will hold its pro day March 29.
