A look at three prospects who might have nailed down a draftable grade due in large part to their strong post-season workouts.

OT Byron Stingily: Louisville
After measuring in at 6-5, 313 pounds, Stingily ran a sub five second 40, posted 25 reps on the bench and a 27.5-inch vertical. He’s a better athlete than football player at this stage, but on tape you can tell there is definitely some upside to his game. He possesses some natural range to the edge, is comfortable in space and is just starting to scratch the surface of his potential. Tall, athletic tackles are always tough to come by during the later portions of the draft and Stingily might have secured his spot in the back end because of his intriguing skill set.

NT Anthony Gray: Southern Miss
With the nose tackle class being in dire need of any type of legit prospect, Gray will likely now hear his name come off the board in the late round range. The 6-0, 330 pound lineman ran in the sub 5.2 range, posted an impressive 39-reps on the bench and a solid 31.5 inch vertical. He’s got some natural power/explosion to his game, can play with leverage inside and is definitely worth a late round look for a team in need of depth at the nose.

CB Ramon Broadway: Arkansas
Despite being undersized at only 5-8, Broadway weighed in at a solid 190 pounds and ran in the low 4.4 range. He posted an impressive 41-inch vertical, pounded out 17-reps on the bench and all this after missing the second half of the season with a dislocated ankle. He is undersized and a bit raw. However, on tape I liked how physical he could be off the line and the fact that he wasn’t afraid to play on an island vs. the best receivers in the SEC. Looks like a borderline late round pick to me as a potential sub package corner.
