The 2023 NFL Scouting Combine is in the books! Hundreds of prospects took to Indianapolis with the hopes of improving their draft stock, and plenty did just that.CBS Sports NFL Draft analysts Chris Trapa so and Josh Edwards recap all the action below, including the QB performances, biggest risers and fallers, sleepers and more.Bryce Young's measurablesJosh Edwards: Young. It is great to see that he can reach that number, but it means very little for this to occur in March if he has no intention of maintaining that weight through his playing career.Anthony Richardson's dominanceChris Trapa so: Richardson at 6-foot-4 and 244 pounds. I was in the vast majority that believed the former Florida quarterback would rock in Indy. Admittedly, I don't think I would've predicted quite as ridiculous of a combine as Richardson ultimately had. For as sensible as Young's decision to sit was, it clearly was an intelligent choice for Richardson to showcase his otherworldly athletic gifts. Adetomiwa Adebawore, EDGE/DL, NorthwesternJosh Edwards: Adebawore would have been the most impre sive performer had it not been for Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson. He tested off the charts in e sentially every category. He ran a 4.49 seconds 40-yard dash at 282 pounds after vertically jumping 37.5 inches and broadly jumping 10-feet-5-inches. The Florida native also put 225 pounds up 27 times on the bench pre s. Teams will need to have a plan in place for his size, but he checked a lot of boxes athletically. Jakorian Bennett, CB, MarylandChris Trapa so: A little obscure with this pick, because it was so difficult to pinpoint Dennis Rodman Jersey just one. Bennett's teammate Deonte Banks entered the combine as the marquee corner from Maryland. , and he ran 4.30 to Banks' 4.35. At 5-foot-11 and 188 pounds with arms just under 32 inches, Bennett won't meet every single team's size threshold, but he did play more inside and out than Banks, and now we know he is an elite athlete.Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSUJosh Edwards:Many were willing to give Simisola Shittu Jersey Boutte the benefit of the doubt for inconsistency during his time in Baton Rouge. The team went through changes at the top, and quarterback play was an i sue post-Joe Burrow. However, with the way things ended, and his athletic testing falling short of expectation, it is much more difficult to prop up his stock. Jordan Addison, WR, USCChris Trapa so: Addison weighed in light as a feather at 5-foot-11 and 173 pounds with arms under 31 inches and hands just under the 9-inch threshold many teams want to see out of their receivers. Then, despite his minimal weight, Addison ran 4.49 in the 40, the 21st-fastest among the wideouts. Surprisingly slow. His 34-inch vert was the seventh-lowest, and his 10-foot-2 broad was the eight-lowest at the position. Look, Addison is a slippery, reliable stud on film. Here at the combine, Addison's stock tipped downward. He should've tested more explosively at 173 pounds.Anthony Richardson, QB, FloridaJosh Edwards: Richardson had a historic performance for his size. He set the tone early in the day with a 40.5-inch vertical jump and a 10-feet-9-inch broad jump. When he stepped in front of the nation for the first time, he ran a 4.43-second 40-yard dash and followed that up with a tremendous on-field showing. Athleticism will only get a quarterback so far in the NFL, but if Richardson is able to figure the rest out, he is going to be special.Zack Kuntz, TE, Old DominionChris Trapa so: We've mentioned the absurd efforts from Richardson and Adebawore. Let's give Kuntz some shine. This former Penn State tight end measured in at 6-foot-7 and 255 pounds with 34-inch arms and ran 4.55 in the 40, and led the way in all the major drills at his position. Highest vertical (40 inches) and broad jump (10-foot-8) and, stunningly, the quickest three-cone at a receiver-list 6.87 seconds. You know how hard it is for a 6-7 tight end to execute a three-cone drill that clean?

Top QBs shineJosh Edwards: All three of the perceived top quarterback prospects that threw (Anthony Richardson, Will Levis and C.J. Stroud) all threw the ball really well. Talent evaluators should feel a lot better about the group at the top, and that is good news for the Chicago Bears, who have put the No. 1 overall selection on the trade block.Stroud lives up to the hypeChris Trapa so:Stroud lived up to the "ball-placement specialist" label he gave himself during the throwing se sions, which, historically, is super-challenging for quarterbacks to do, throwing to a randomized batch of unfamiliar wideouts. There was plenty of zip on his pa ses, too, and he had no difficulty pushing it 60-plus yards down the field. Ball never fluttered, didn't hang in the air forever. Altogether, Stroud was a surgical pa ser Saturday night.Bryce Young, AlabamaJosh Edwards: What happened on the turf at Lucas Oil Stadium was impre sive, but the biggest portion of an evaluation is the tape. Young is the most natural playmaker at the position. He is a tremendous leader with the ability to make plays outside of the play structure. C.J. Stroud, Ohio StateChris Trapa so: For many of the reasons I listed above. I saw more "big-time" throws from him on film than any of the other quarterbacks, and he has shades of that Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert athleticism in that he's not a freaky, designed run-game type, but he's just explosive and naturally gifted enough to elude rushers to extend plays and find open receivers in scramble drills.Carrington Valentine, CB, KentuckyJosh Edwards:Valentine had an impre sive 39-inch vertical jump and 10-feet-8-inch broad jump. However, he should also run fast and move well at his Pro Day. The ball production was not there and there are some tackling concerns, but teams will be intrigued by the athletic testing.Durell Nchami, EDGE, MarylandChris Trapa so:After what we saw from Banks, Bennett, offensive tackle Jaelyn Duncan and wideouts Dontay Demus and Rakim Jarrett, picking a Terrapin feels like a relatively safe bet. I loved Nchami on film, and while he never rekindled the magic as a pa s-rusher from early in his college career, he has burst, bend, and pa s-rush moves. Plus, he has that lean body type that lends itself well to an electric Pro Day workout. Tight endJosh Edwards: Tight ends are the strongest. Lauri Markkanen Jersey They have multiple true difference-makers at the top, but the value is in the depth. Teams will be Wendell Carter Jr. Jersey able to get really good players at the position late Day 2, early Day 3.Edge rusherChris Trapa so: For as smart of a choice as it would be for me to copy Josh's answer -- because Josh is a great evaluator, and I agree on the tight end strength -- let's go a different direction for variety sake. I'll go with the edge rushers. There could be five or six who go in the first round, then like five or six more in Round 2: Will Anderson Jr., Tyree Wilson, Lukas Van Ne s, Nolan Smith -- monster workout! -- B.J. Ojulari, Will McDonald IV, Felix Anudike-Uzomah, Myles Murphy, the list goes on. Even Ohio State's Zach Harrison, Army's Andre Carter II, App State's Nick Hampton, Keion White from Georgia Tech, Notre Dame's Isaiah Foskey, and Tenne see's Byron Young bring it around the corner. The marquee talent is there. So is the quality depth.Which QBs go whereJosh Edwards: It is clich, but it has to be when the quarterbacks are taken and by whom. The group has significant potential, and last year's cla s left us wanting more. The narrative running parallel to the talent available is the trade po sibilities. Who will trade up and how quickly does the fourth quarterback, whoever that ends up being, get taken? Pro Days impactChris Trapa so: How the Pro Days will provide an opportunity to boost the stock of many of the big-time prospects who didn't workout in Indianapolis. Always fun to see those mid-April surges. Young, Anudike-Uzomah, Tyjae Spears, the running back from Tulane, TCU wide receiver Quentin Johnston running the 40, Tyree Wilson from Texas Tech getting in a workout at the Texas Tech Pro Day. It'll all be fascinating to monitor and track.
