Robert Griffin III – QB – Washington Redskins
40 Time: 4.41 seconds
Broad Jump: 120 inches
Robert Griffin III is an elite athlete. He not only has the athletic ability to extend plays after they break down, but he can make plays all on his own both his arm and his legs. Griffin has a huge arm and the ability to effectively throw deep. If his receivers are able to effectively stretch the field and he is allowed to run wild by Shanahan, Griffin III has a chance to put up some huge fantasy numbers this year both on the ground and through the air.
Jake Locker – QB – Tennessee Titans
40 Time: 4.51 seconds
3 Cone Drill: 6.77 seconds
Locker is another excellent athlete who has a chance to make an impact in Fantasy Football in 2012. His athletic ability is underrated, and while he isn’t as fast as Griffin III he easily has the speed and agility to pick up yardage in chunks on the ground. Locker has also been impressive passing the football and could be in line for a breakout campaign this season.
Roy Helu – RB – Washington Redskins
40 Time: 4.40 seconds
3 Cone Drill: 6.67 seconds
Shuttle Drill: 4.01 seconds
Roy Helu is quicker and faster than the tacklers chasing him. If he can stay healthy, avoid Shanahan’s doghouse, and and stay at the top of the depth chart he could put up a big season in 2012. The improved offense and a year of experience should help Helu, and his athletic ability should keep him at the top of the depth chart. Helu could be a huge breakout player this year, but he could also be a bust.
Bernard Scott – RB – Cincinnati Bengals
40 Time: 4.44 seconds
Broad Jump: 125 inches
Bench Press: 21 reps
Bernard Scott is a powerful runner with breakaway speed. Scouts have been expecting a breakout from Scott for years based on his athletic ability, and this year may be his opportunity to finally arrive as a starting running back in the NFL.
Greg Little – WR – Cleveland Browns
40 Time: 4.51 seconds
Bench Press: 27 reps
3 Cone drill: 6.80 seconds
Greg Little is not your typical Wide Receiver standout at the combine. He didn’t run a blazing fast 40 time, but what he did do is prove his strength by putting up 27 bench reps. He also possesses excellent agility and hands, and could put up huge numbers for a second year player if the QB play in Cleveland does not limit him too much.
Darrius Heyward-Bey – WR – Oakland Raiders
40 Time: 4.25 seconds
3 Cone Drill: 6.80 seconds
The blazing fast Heyward-Bey put together a decent campaign in 2011. Heading into his 4th season, Heyward-Bey has a chance to emerge as the top target for Carson Palmer in Oakland. He is a long shot for real fantasy production, but if his chemistry with Palmer continues he could be a great value at the end of the draft.
