Garrett Bradbury’s NFL Scouting Combine Efforts
Garrett Bradbury probably wouldn’t have garnered quite the attention if he had a so-so combine. Instead, however, Bradbury was one of the top performers in a multitude of categories from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Case in point, Bradbury ran a 4.92 40-yard dash time, which ranked third among all offensive line participants. Sub-5.0 times for O-linemen are rare, of course, and this just showcases Bradbury’s direct-movement skills.
But what helps separate the 6-foot-3, 306-pound Bradbury from some of the faster linemen in this year’s NFL Draft class was his 7.41 time in the three-cone drill — tops among all linemen.
That speaks agility, which is a mainstay of Kyle Shanahan’s zone-blocking scheme.
But speed and agility weren’t the only things to make Bradbury stand out at the combine. His 34 bench-press reps of 225 pounds ranked second among all offensive linemen, helping illustrate the combination of strength with his movement skills.
Before the combine, Bradbury was likely pegged as a Round 3 pick. Now, there’s a good chance he winds up going no later than the second round, possibly winding up sneaking into the latter stages of Round 1.
So, would the 49ers be interested?
