  1. Hamidou Diallo: SG – Kentucky

Although Hamidou Diallo didn’t play for Kentucky last season, there’s a chance that he enters this year’s NBA Draft. He had a dominant performance at the combine. His wingspan measured at nearly 7 feet, and he posted a 44.5 inch vertical leap. He’s an intriguing boom-or-bust prospect, but some team will likely take a first round flier on him because of his skill set and combine performance.

Free Agency Fantasy Winners and Losers

  1. Mike Glennon: QB – Chicago Bears

Although there’s a chance Mike Glennon might not work out in Chicago, he’s still a decent fantasy option with a ton of upside. As long as he isn’t this year’s Brock Osweiler, Glennon will have a chance to be fantasy relevant. He hasn’t had much experience as a starter, but was impressive at times in Tampa Bay. With a few more years under his belt, he might become a decent starter. He won’t be a top ten fantasy option at quarterback, but he’ll be a serviceable option that should warrant a spot on a roster in most leagues.

NFL Combine Recap – Winners and Losers

  1. Obi Melifonwu: DB – Connecticut

After having the second longest broad jump in combine history behind former college teammate Byron Jones, people in the draft community are wondering what is in the water at UConn? Melifonwu didn’t just dominate the jumps in Indianapolis, he also dominated during the other speed drills. His 40 yard dash and change of direction times were excellent for his size and position. Although he played safety in college, many teams are looking at him as a cornerback at the next level. He has the talent to play both, but cornerbacks are a much more important position in today’s NFL. Teams are looking for corners at least six feet tall with the ability to run. Melifonwu is 6’4” and looks like a potential press corner. He may have a meteoric rise like Byron Jones which could culminate in him becoming a first round pick.
