NFL draft combine results and the final roster picks were revealed Wednesday night.
The combine has been a staple for the league since 1984, when a combine in Indianapolis saw players from five different conferences compete.
Since then, the league has expanded the process, with more players from the last three drafts making the cut.
The draft is now in its second year.
This year’s combine has seen several notable players from both the Big 12 and SEC making the final cuts, including:LSU LB Reggie Ragland, Iowa RB C.J. Beathard, Auburn WR Andre Johnson, Florida QB Jameis Winston, Texas A&M WR Jaelen Strong, Miami WR Sammy Watkins and Clemson QB Deshaun Watson.WRs Allen Robinson and Marlon Moore both made the cut, while LB Trent Murphy and CB Deion Jones both did not.WR Calvin Ridley also made the final cut.
The first draft class to have all of the top picks on the field in one day was the 2014 NFL draft.
The first-overall pick in the 2014 draft was Texas A & M CB Deshone Kizer, who was picked with the No. 11 overall pick in 2014.
The last draft class with all first-round picks on one day in one year was the 2016 draft class, which featured six first- and second-rounders, including the first two picks in the draft.
In the 2014 combine, three players made the field for the first time since 1983: Ohio State DE Derek Barnett and Clemson RB Alvin Kamara, who combined for more than 1,100 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2014 while with the Buckeyes.
Both of those players are expected to be selected in the first round of the draft, though the Bengals have reportedly been interested in Kamara for years.
Bengals DE Anthony Barr was the first player selected in a combine with all the first-rounder in a given year.
