Comparing the top D-Linemen prospects @ the 2014 Combine’s to the current Cincy Bengals’ D Linemen.

How did the combine #’s from today’s current Bengals Defensive Linemen compare to the combine #’s from the top D-Line prospects who participated in the 2014 Combine?

DEFENSIVE TACKLE

Geno Atkins – Aaron Donald
This comparison works on so many levels (the productive, powerful, yet supposedly undersized lineman who seems to get graded lower than his performance indicates). And the combine #’s are practically dead on...

Geno: 6’2" ... 293 lbs ... 4.75 (40) ... 34 reps ... 33.0 vert ... 9’09" jump ... 7.33 (3cone)
Aaron: 6’1" ... 285 lbs ... 4.68 (40) ... 35 reps ... 32.0 vert ... 9’07" jump ... 7.11 (3 cone)

Domata Peko – n/a
Unfortunately for Peko, his #’s weren’t up to par with any of the top DT’s this year.
His weight is similar to Stephon Tuitt, but he’s quite a bit slower and not as strong.
His vert is comparable to Timmy Jernigan, but he had fewer reps and was noticably slower.
He was faster than Louis Nix, but was 25 lbs lighter, and had a worse vert & reps.

DEFENSIVE END

Michael Johnson & Margus Hunt – Jadevon Clowney
For all the hype Clowney got for busting out an amazing workout, MJ93 and Margus Hunt were similar or better in many regards.
Hunt, at 11 lbs heavier, also clocked Clowney’s 4.53 time in the 40, while crushing him with almost double the reps.
Michael Johnson came in the same weight as Clowney. He clocked a little slower, but did 33% more reps, and a better high jump and long jump.
Undoubtedly Clowney is an elite athlete at the DE position, but Johnson & Hunt are seemingly just as athletic as Clowney is.

MJ93: 6’7" ... 266 lbs ... 4.69 (40) ... 28 reps ... 38.5 vert ... 10’08" ... 7.42 (3 cone)
Hunt: 6’8" ... 277 lbs ... 4.53 (40) ... 38 reps ... 34.5 vert ... 10’01" ... 7.07 (3 cone)
Clown: 6’5" ... 266 lbs ... 4.53 (40) ... 21 reps ... 37.5 vert ... 10’03" ... 7.27 (3 cone)

Carlos Dunlap – Kony Ealy
Similar weight, reps, vert & broad jump.
Ealy was much slower in the 40, but must faster in the 3 cone.

Dunlap: 6’6" ... 278 lbs ... 4.68 (40) ... 21 reps ... 31.5 vert ... 9’03" ... 7.21 (3 cone)
Ealy: 6’4" ... 273 lbs ... 4.92 (40) ... 22 reps ... 31.0 vert ... 9’05" ... 6.83 (3 cone)

Robert Geathers – Scott Crichton
Geathers and Crichton are practically combine clones.

Geathers: 6’3" ... 271 lbs ... 4.84 (40) ... 24 reps ... 33.5 vert ... 9’04"
Crichton: 6’3" ... 273 lbs ... 4.84 (40) ... 24 reps ... 31.5 vert ... 9’00"

Wallace Gilberry – n/a Unfortunately for Gilberry, his #’s weren’t up to par with any of the top DE’s this year.
Despite only weighing 268, he sloughed to a 4.98 run in the 40, and put up 19 reps.
