2019 NFL combine risers: Kiper and McShay pick 10 draft prospects

ESPN NFL draft experts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay recap the 2019 NFL combine, including their picks for which prospects helped themselves the most in Indianapolis.

Daily recaps:
Day 1 (RB/OL) | Day 2 (QB/WR/TE)
Day 3 (DL/LB) | Day 4 (DB)

What was the biggest takeaway from the week?

McShay: Man, this draft class is bringing some serious speed to the league. Nine wide receivers clocked sub-4.4 40-yard dash times -- only DJ Chark broke that mark last year -- and tight ends blazed 4.5s. And it wasn't all skill players.

You don't see many 342-pound defensive tackles with 5.05 speed. Clemson's Dexter Lawrence really impressed with his run, even though his day ended with a quad injury. Alabama's Quinnen Williams scorched a 4.83 at 303 pounds, and Mississippi State's Montez Sweat set a combine record for defensive linemen with an absolutely ridiculous 4.41 at 260 pounds. And linebackers Devin White (LSU) and Devin Bush (Michigan) both posted numbers in the low 4.4s. I was just really impressed with the speed of several of these guys.

Kiper: We're 50 days from the NFL draft, and no one really knows who's going No. 1 overall. All the buzz this week has been about the Arizona Cardinals taking Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray at No. 1. But we've seen these smokescreens before, and teams always try to hold their cards close. Either way, it's going to be a fun lead-up to April 25. Will we see a team trade up soon to secure one of the quarterbacks?
