Now that the NFL combine has finished, it's time to take stock of which players helped and hurt themselves with their performance in Indianapolis.

ESPN draft analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay broke things down , with Kiper concentrating on the defensive players and McShay the offensive players.

Some risers: running back Jerick McKinnon, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, defensive tackle Aaron Donald and Terrence Brooks.

Some fallers: offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, receiver Jarvis Landry, defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and linebacker Michael Sam.

Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars-related content from around the Web in our Reading the Coverage feature:
