NFL Combine 2013 results: Marquise Goodwin impresses, as expected

Marquise Goodwin was just one player in the region who had a good showing at the NFL Scouting Combine.


The 2013 NFL Combine is wrapping up, and several players from the Dallas area showed some stuff. Texas, TCU, SMU and Baylor all sent players to the combine this week, and many of them had good outings.

Perhaps the highest-profile player was Alex Okafor out of Texas. He has been rated as one of the top defensive ends entering the draft, with many mock drafts having him selected in the first round, and almost none having him lasting into the third round.

Okafor didn't put up huge numbers, though. He only had 21 reps on the bench press, and didn't take part in any other drills on the day.

One Texas player that did put up big numbers: wide receiver Marquise Goodwin. He ran the fastest 40-yard dash of any player at the combine, putting up a time of 4.27 seconds. He also went for 132.0 inches in the broad jump, which was tied for second place among wide receivers.

Goodwin has the athleticism that scouts want, but doesn't have a whole lot of high-level game tape. Still, meeting his expectations at the combine can only help his draft stock at this point.

SMU defensive lineman Margus Hunt has been picking up steam of late. After putting up 38 reps on the bench press, which was tied for the most at this year's combine, he'll likely continue to see his stock rise. He has been pegged as a second-round pick by many experts, and might just be able to sneak into the first round.
