NFL combine 2023 results tracker: 2 pairs of teammates dominate, historic 40-yard dash, more big performances


This week, more than 300 prospects are in Indianapolis for the 2023 NFL Scouting Combine. Each of these players are looking to improve their draft stock while possibly finding their future NFL team in the process.

On Thursday, we compiled the top results from the defensive linemen, edge rushers, and linebackers, who took part in on-field drills. On Friday, we did the same for cornerbacks and safeties. Below are each of the top individual performances from Indianapolis, as several players surely improved their draft stocks by virtue of their performances.

DJ Turner runs fastest defensive 40 time

Michigan’s DJ Turner may have seen his draft stock climb Friday afternoon. The two-time All-Big Ten selection is CBS Sports’ No. 11-ranked cornerback, and he ran an official 4.26 40-yard dash. Check out his run, here:

Turner’s time is tied for the fifth-fastest at the combine ever and was the fastest of any defensive player at this year’s NFL combine.

Fast turtles

One of the biggest takeaways from Friday came thanks to the University of Maryland. Cornerbacks Jakorian Bennett and Deonte Banks apparently became the fastest cornerback teammates in NFL combine history with 4.30 and 4.35 40-yard dash times. They came in at No. 2 and No. 3 behind Turner. 

Banks also led all cornerbacks with a 42″ vert, while Bennett was tied for fourth with a 40.50″. Banks came in second with an 11’4″ broad jump, while Bennett was just behind him at 11’1″. If you love looking at the athletic testing numbers, these are the two players for you. Next Gen Stats had Banks and Bennett atop the NGS athleticism score rankings for cornerbacks at the combine.

LaDainian Tomlinson’s nephew impresses

Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson is a small player, but you know what they say: You can’t run away from the DNA. The nephew of Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson finished tied for eighth among cornerbacks in the 40-yard dash with a 4.41, tied for sixth in the vertical with a 39″ and tied for sixth in the broad jump with a 11’0″. 

Hodges-Tomlinson is CBS Sports’ No. 18 cornerback in this class, but he’s quick, athletic and could make an impact as a nickel back. 

A family affair

We didn’t just have the nephew of an NFL great working out at Lucas Oil Stadium on Friday night; we had the son of one, too. Joey Porter Jr. did not compete in on-field drills, but he did the jumps and the 40-yard dash after posting some great measurements for one of the top cornerbacks in the class. Here he is running the 40, with his dad, five-time All-Pro linebacker Joey Porter, looking on.

Fighting Illini dominate

If not for the dazzling cornerback duo of Maryland’s Deonte Banks and Jakorian Bennett, we’d be talking about Illinois as having the best pair of teammates to work out Friday night. Jartavius Martin was the headliner, as his 44-inch vertical jump topped all defensive players, and he complemented that with an 11-foot-1 broad jump (first among safeties) and a 4.46 40-yard dash (third). 

That said, don’t sleep on teammate Sydney Brown, who finished right behind Martin in the broad jump (10-foot-10) while jumping 40.5 inches and running the 40 in 4.47 seconds.

Kancey’s eye-popping speed

Kancey — CBS Sports’ fourth-ranked defensive tackle and the No. 40 prospect overall — has similar measurables to fellow Pitt product and Rams superstar Aaron Donald, who ran 0.01 seconds slower than Kancey in the 40. Donald possessed a 98 athleticism score to Kancey’s 94, according to Next Gen Stats.

Adetomiwa Adebawore is off the charts

Despite being 6-foot-2 and 282-pounds, Adebawore worked out with the edge rusher group and put on a show. The Northwestern product had a 4.54 40-yard dash, a 1.61 10-yard split, a 37.50′ vertical, and a 10’5″ on the broad jump. Adebawore’s 40 time was faster than fellow Big Ten alums Aidan Hutchinson and Nick Bosa. Before today, the fastest 40 time at the combine since 2000 by a player 280-plus pounds was 4.68 seconds by Aaron Donald. Adebawore is currently CBS Sports’ 89th-ranked prospect, but he could be moving up the board with the performance he just rolled out. 

Nolan Smith has speed and hops

Georgia’s Nolan Smith showed the NFL that he can leap up with the best of them, boasting a 41.5″ vertical. Smith, who has drawn comparisons to Eagles edge rusher Haason Reddick, is CBS Sports’ sixth-ranked edge rusher and the No. 36 overall prospect in this class. He also officially ran a blazing 4.30-second 40-yard dash, which is faster than both DeAndre Hopkins and Stefon Diggs when they were coming out. Oh, and it’s also faster than Giants running back Saquon Barkley (4.40).

Will McDonald’s ‘flu game’

Iowa State edge rusher Will McDonald IV came down with a fever close to 104 degrees on Tuesday evening, according to NFL Media. Despite being sick and losing weight over the last 48 hours, he insisted on working out on Thursday. McDonald, who is CBS Sports’ 11th-ranked edge rushing prospect, had an 11-foot broad jump — which ranked second among all defensive linemen and linebackers.
