NFL Combine Results: News About Akeem Ayers, Martez Wilson, Von Miller

Linebackers hit the field in Indianapolis today to take part in their NFL Combine drills. The results produced some of the most interesting numbers yet, as guys like Akeem Ayers, Martez Wilson and Von Miller all raised eyebrows (for both good and bad reasons).

  • I haven't been able to find an official 40-yard dash time for Ayers, but I believe it was somewhere around 4.80 seconds. That is much slower than expected and has caused some to quickly drop him down their board. National Football Post's Wes Bunting said that Ayers did well in the positional drills and "plays faster than he times," so perhaps in the long run this won't hurt his stock too much.
  • A great way to improve your stock is to show off some serious speed, and Illinois linebacker Martez Wilson did just that. His official 40-yard dash time was 4.49 seconds, the fastest of all linebackers at the NFL Combine.
  • Texas A&M's Von Miller had the second-fastest 40-yard dash time, completing the drill in 4.53 seconds. He was already projected to be a high draft pick before the combine, but since he performed so well in Indy I think he's solidified his status as a top five selection. 
  • Wes Bunting reports that Michigan linebacker Jonas Mouton ran a 4.9 in the 40-yard dash. He projects Mouton to be an undrafted free agent.
