    Who will be the biggest "riser" after the Combine?

    I've listed a few guys I think could, by virtue of their Combine performance, be big "risers" as the draft approaches. Who do you think will gain the most from the week in Indianapolis?

    I went with Rogers.

    With the success of guys like Janoris Jenkins and Vontaze Burfict, I think teams will be looking for worth reclamation projects. If Rogers impresses both in the 40 and, perhaps more importantly, in his interviews, I think he could rise from a Round 2-3 player to a potential first round prospect.

    Rodgers likely will rise during the combine but his former teammate Justin Hunter is the guy I believe will be the biggest riser he has great speed and is a great track athlete and can dominate every drill he also has the height to wow scouts

    This guy can establish himself as a top 20 pick and the #1 WR in the draft

    Easily Cordarrelle Patterson. Guys athletic as they get, and may emerge as the #1 WR taken after the combine.

    Crazy that Cordarrelle Patterson, Justin Hunter, and Da'Rick Rogers all played on the same team... well, at least until Rogers got booted off.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. Not only do I think he is going to be the biggest "riser" I think the combine is going to propel him into being a top ten pick.

    Re: Who will be the biggest "riser" after the Combine?

    I was thinking Patterson as well. The class is looking for someone to come out and lead the way, and I hink that the combine will be where that happens. One of the top five or so is going to rock the place and come away with a top 15 slot. Might as well be Patterson.
    I believe!

    Truth is, the reason I didn't list Patterson is that I've already seen him in the 10-15 range in several mocks.

    I agree, though, that he could jump to the top of the WR pool if he runs as fast as some expect him to.

    Re: Who will be the biggest "riser" after the Combine?

    I'm going with a wild card. I think Johnathon Cyprien, the safety from Florida International, is going to make a dramatic ascent up team's boards.

    He started out as a middle round nobody but after his showing at the Senior Bowl he has been getting a lot of pub.

    With 2+ months until the Draft he has ample opportunity to keep moving up the rankings.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Exactly. He may move up after the Combine, but only 5 or 6 spots. He's already projected to somewhere in the early teens.


    My big riser?
