- Some highlights from the Combine
- At the Combine, Devin Lloyd was graded as a 6.38 out of 8 which equates to a projection as someone who “will eventually be a plus starter”. “He plays with the willful demeanor of an NFL alpha linebacker and is sneaky talented as a rusher either blitzing or aligning off the edge”.

- At the Combine, Nephi Sewell was graded as a 5.60 out of 8 which equates to a projection as someone who is a “candidate for bottom of roster or practice squad”. His grading was tied for #27 out of 32 LBs. The main concern with Sewell appears to be that he is undersized for NFL Linebacker play but there is interest in his ability to be a linebacker in coverage. To read his full profile, click here.
