Combine Report: Tuesday

1. Kenny Phillips benched 225 only 19 times. While that isn’t bad, it wasn’t near the top of any the DBs and you have to wonder if he is going to be a hard-hitting safety with that kind of upper body strength. I think 19 reps is adequate, but I hope it does make him fall, I’d love to get him in the second!

2. Aqib Talib is sloppy. “All over the place” Mayock said he is inconsistent. Reminds me too much of Phillip Buccannon at CB and he isn’t even as fast. Not that we need a CB, but I could see this guy falling. Mayock pointed at pretty large problems with work ethic on film. I wouldn’t draft him.

3. Rogers-Cromartie is fast and fluid. I could see himself going in the middle of the first round.

4. Tom Zibikowski may be a later round option for safety if we want to go Safety. He is strong and good against the run, but maybe a liability in coverage. With the strength of the rest of our secondary in coverage we can probably get away with him as long as he can plug the run.

  • Will be interesting to see how Raiders use their three top safeties. I expect they may use all 3 in rotation.

  • Agreed. Those were his strengths in college too. Needs to get better vs run. https://t.co/niFTc5uP2W

  • I realize the NFL is a results based business, but wins and losses aren't the only results to judge. Most important, but not only.

  • Cool to see Ben Heeney get a bigger role in 2016. Was a big fan of his college tape. Inconsistent yr 1, but as expected took over for Lofton
