Monday was the final day of the 2015 NFL scouting combine and defensive backs took center stage. Of course, plenty of SEC stars showcased their skills, so that leads today's links, but there's plenty of non-combine stuff too:
From the NFL combine:
Mississippi State safety Justin Cox's athleticism shined on Monday, as he posted the best 40-yard dash time and broad jump marks among safeties at the combine.
Alabama product Landon Collins posted the fourth-best 40-yard dash time among defensive backs at the combine.
Auburn's Jermaine Whitehead recorded top-five marks in his position group in four events: the vertical, broad jump, three-cone drill and 20-yard shuttle.
Ole Miss' Senquez Golson ran a 4.46-second 40-yard dash, eighth-fastest among cornerbacks at the combine.
Tennessee's Justin Coleman finished in the top 10 among defensive backs in the vertical, broad jump and bench press.
