After a strong showing in Indianapolis, Miles Sanders has been named the All-2019 NFL Combine Offensive Team.
The All-2019 #NFLCombine Offensive Team!

The running back was a top-10 performer for his position in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, broad jump, 20-yard shuttle, and came in first place in the 3-cone drill.
Sanders eliminated just about every doubt teams could have had about him heading into the combine. He measured in at 5-10 5/8 and 211 pounds, making him one of the more filled out backs at his size. That extra size did not slow him down in the slightest, running a 4.49 forty. Out of the three backs to run that time, Sanders is both the tallest and the heaviest.
Scouts had to have been drooling over his 3-cone drill performance. Sanders was so far ahead of the pack that the 0.06-second difference between him and the second place finisher was one of the largest gaps between two times among the top-15 finishers. That kind of agility mixed with his size and speed could be enough to shoot him to an early second-round selection.
Sanders will have another chance to show scouts what he can do at Penn State's Pro Day later this month.
