The NFL Combine: How the Heismans stack up

How the Heismans stack up

For the first time since 2015, there will be two Heisman Trophy winners — Lamar Jackson and Baker Mayfield — taking part in the annual NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis. The 2018 event started this past Wednesday and continues until Monay, March 5.

Heisman winners have, in recent years, peformed quite well there.

The most recent Heisman winner to take part, Derrick Henrystole the show at the combine, running the 40 yard dash in a fleet 4.54 seconds while measuring in at a rock-solid 6-foot-3, 247 pounds. He also recorded a vertical leap of 37 inches and a broad jump of 10 feet, 10 inches.

All in all, it was an extremely impressive showing for the Alabama running back, who rushed for 2,219 yards and 28 touchdowns for the Crimson Tide in 215.
