Top Tweets: NFL Scouting Combine Day 4

The 2019 NFL Scouting Combine continues to roll on as Day 4 came and went Saturday in Indianapolis.

Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends went through on-field drills at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday, while defensive linemen and linebackers showed their strength on the bench press and later chatted with media members at the Indiana Convention Center.

Here are 10 top tweets from Day 4:

Fast-forward thinking

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah predicted who would have the five fastest times in the 40-yard dash, correctly forecasting the four fastest receivers (the fifth player in Jeremiah's predictions is cornerback Kendall Sheffield, who will participate Monday).

All in the family

It's not every day that you can watch your son compete at the combine, but Giants head coach (and former Vikings offensive coordinator) Pat Shurmur got the chance Saturday. His son, Kyle, played quarterback at Vanderbilt.

Growth spurt

ESPN Vikings reporter Courtney Cronin showed how much Mississippi wide receiver D.K. Metcalf has grown since 2015.

Plenty of confidence

Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver isn't lacking confidence at the combine.

Top-notch talent

There's never a bad time to sit back and watch highlights from Vikings Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter.

Small-school speed

UMass wide receiver Andy Isabella tied for the fastest time at the combine this year by running the 40-yard dash in 4.31 seconds.

Airing it out

North Carolina State quarterback Ryan Finley was among many signal-callers to show off their arms for NFL teams on Saturday.

Good as advertised

Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson — considered by many to be the top player at his position — had quite the day in on-field drills Saturday.


Myles Boykins' former Notre Dame teammates were fired up that he had a time of 4.42 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

Run, Rich, Run

Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus ran his own 40-yard dash to raise support for NFL Network's Rich Eisen's sprint for charity, which will happen Monday.
