Perhaps this year’s combine workout warrior, Georgia’ Chris Conley may have had his draft stock skyrocket after his performance today.
Georgia WR Chris Conley dominated the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine by tying a record for vertical jump and putting up top performances in the broad jump, bench press and 40-time.
Few people have mentioned the name of Georgia WR Chris Conley in the last few months – but they will from now on after his incredible combine performance on Saturday.
Conley impressed early with a 4.35 40-time – one of only five wideouts to perform in that range and tying the likes of star WRs Kevin White, Tyler Lockett and Phillip Dorsett.
But his dominance didn’t end there as Conley tied an NFL-combine record with an incredible 45″ vertical jump.
Conley also put forward a nearly 12-foot broad jump and 18 bench press reps on the 250-lb lift.
If Conley was going to be a late-round pick before the Combine, teams may need to re-assess that plan. With athletic ability like that some teams are going to drool over the chance to mold him into a real NFL receiver.
