Benardrick McKinney flashes talent at NFL Combine

first_imgBenardrick McKinney finished his time in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine better than he started it.The former Mississippi State linebacker turned in a 4.66 in the 40-yard dash, which was 14th among linebackers. It’s a good time for a 6-4, 246-pound linebacker.McKinney entered the day as one of the top inside linebackers in the draft along with TCU linebacker Paul Dawson.Dawson struggled on Sunday running a 4.93. He also turned in the worst vertical among linebackers at 28 inches. Dawson’s broad jump of 9-feet-1-inch was third worse.McKinney had one of the best vertical jumps at the Combine for a linebacker. He leaped 40.5 inches, which was fourth at his position.McKinney ranked 10th in the broad jump at his position group jumping 10-feet-1-inch. That tied the mark of teammate Preston Smith, who had a very, very good day.Preston Smith made himself money at NFL CombineHis 7.21-seconds in the three-cone drill ranked in the middle of the pack at 14th. His 4.27 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle was 13th best.The numbers came a day after McKinney finished with 16 reps in the bench press on Saturday. That was tied for the fewest of any linebacker. The average rep-count for a linebacker was 23. By comparison, McKinney’s teammate, safety Justin Cox, did 15 reps. Running back Josh Robinson finished with 21 and Smith tallied 24.Josh Robinson disappointed with performance at combineSunday started slowly for McKinney as well. His first 40-yard dash was timed at 4.78. He turned in a 4.69 in his second attempt. Both were unofficial. When it was made official, his time came in at 4.66.“That hurts him a little bit,” NFL Draft expert Mike Mayock said after McKinney’s first 40-time. “A lot of people talking about him as a late first round pick. I would have like to see him run a little better.”McKinney solved that during his second attempt. But he can’t improve his tape.“He jumped 40 inches and you see that in spurts on tape,” NFL Network analyst and former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah said. “But the more you watch, the more I got concerned. He couldn’t find the football. He couldn’t get off blocks. So to me, he’s one of the tougher guys to figure out. I ended up dropping him down.”Many project McKinney as a first-round pick. He would be the Bulldogs’ first since 2012.“I started out with a late one to a mid-two (grade),” Mayock said. “The more tape I watched, I kind of felt the same way. You were around the football a lot, but why didn’t you make more plays?”McKinney led the Bulldogs in tackles the last two seasons. He finished his junior season with 71 tackles. He also finished second on the team with eight tackles for loss and 3.0 sacks. He recovered three fumbles and forced another.McKinney’s numbers mirror those of former Bulldogs and current Seattle Seahawk K.J. Wright at the combine. Wright was selected in the fourth round in 2011.McKinney will have another opportunity to impress scouts on March 4 at his Pro Day.MeasurablesMcKinney: 6-4, 246Wright: 6-3, 24640-yard DashMcKinney: 4.66Wright: 4.75Bench PressMcKinney: 16 repsWright: 20 repsVertical JumpMcKinney: 40.5 inchesWright: 32 inchesBroad JumpMcKinney: 10-feet-1-inchWright: 10-feetThree-cone DrillMcKinney: 7.21 secondsWright: 7.26 seconds20-yard ShuttleMcKinney: 4.27 secondsWright: 4.46 secondslast_img read more

“It’s commerce” – Celtic player’s father on Man City trap, £200k…

first_imgThe 27-year-old spent three years with FC Brussels before Manchester City signed him for their academy in 2006, where he spent three more years.However, he struggled to become a regular at the Etihad, which is why they sent him on two loan spells to Bolton Wanderers and FC Twente between 2011 and 2013 and his performance in the two loan spells was not sufficient to be a first team regular with the English club.“I did not realise that Dedryck should play little in England when we received the Manchester City offer,” Boyata’s father told De Standaard.“You know, I was a footballer myself and I just did’t want to deprive my son of such a huge opportunity to break through.”Embed from Getty Images Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata’s father played for Union Saint-Gilloise and Stade Leuven in 90s and he didn’t want his son being denied an opportunity of playing for an English club. Boyata Sr reveals Manchester City paid a salary of “£200,000-a-year” when his son was 16, but admitted it was too late by the time they realised the Premier League champions’ model.“If they return [from loan to City], then it is not to play with the first team, but to be sold. It’s commerce. But we understood only later,” he explained. Limited playing saw him leave City and make a permanent switch to Celtic in 2015, where he has now established himself as one of the key players in Brendan Rodgers’ side.Celtic only paid £1.5m for the player, so it wasn’t so profitable for Manchester City.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameDon’t Play This Game, it’s Addictive.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoDating.comFind out where single guys are hanging out in Tung ChungDating.comUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystWill Blockchain Reduce the Global Trade Finance Gap to Reach the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?StanChart by CNBC CatalystUndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題Undolast_img read more

Everything perfect… Until hygiene decisions. Soccer players wonder: Why do…

first_imgThere was a misunderstanding among the players who crossed the home Slovaks (3: 1) just after a great performance. When they heard the news, they were sad, perhaps angry.“Everything would be perfect if there was no decision from the hygiene to cancel the meeting,” added midfielder Alex Král on social networks.Triumph and the end. The footballers prematurely dissolved the meeting, they will not play with Scotland“Before the match, it was known that we had an infected team and we got the green light. After the match, do we get an immediate stop and everyone has to go home? Why? ”Jakub Jankto, another representative, did not understand.The Czech team started the match in Bratislava, a positive test for covid-19 with a member of the implementation team despite Slovak hygiene. However, the Czech team checked the continuation of the national team after the match for preventive reasons.The national team was supposed to play on Monday night in Olomouc against Scotland, it is still in danger of contumacy, but most recently there is also a variant in the game that the team would enter the match with a different selection.Everything changes quickly. Something different applies every few hours.September 5, 2020 at 1:14, post archived: September 5, 2020 at 9:37For example, on Friday after the match, Jankto and his teammates were surprised: “After returning, we will probably not even get a quarantine, which logically makes no sense to me and should be the subject of discussion in the coming days. We are a threat, but when we return we can go anywhere. What’s that supposed to mean? ”From Saturday morning, however, the whole team already knows that the so-called shortened quarantine is still waiting for them.All footballers will go to it, with the proviso that they would then have to undergo a mandatory retest. The rest of the implementation team and escort will be quarantined according to the specific instructions of each local hygienist.“Members of the Czech national football team have been moving in separate groups of houses and clubs since Friday evening,” confirmed the association’s spokesman Michal Jurman.“As for other measures, at the moment we have information that the player will be subject to the regime in the coming days, generally resulting from the LFA hygiene manual, ie. abbreviated quarantine and subsequent retesting. The rest of the team, with the exception of the players, will be quarantined according to the specific instructions of the local hygiene stations. “September 5, 2020 at 1:11 am, post archived: September 5, 2020 at 9:36 amJurman announced the news of the dissolution of the national team to journalists in Bratislava before midnight on Friday. The information was too fresh, surprising, it was no longer possible to ask the opinion of the players themselves. In connection with covid-19, the media have limited access to actors, so another citation from social networks.“I’m unhappy about it, because now no one knows what will happen next and how it will actually be with the next meeting, where we play three outdoor matches. I believe that we will find a more reasonable solution than now, “added King.The national team had its first infected person in Prague during the week.Due to a positive test with one of the masseurs, Patrik Schick and Tomáš Souček, who came into closer contact with the person in question, also had to go into isolation. Ondřej Kolář, the goalkeeper, did not travel with the team to Slovakia, where the tests revealed an infection in another member of the implementation team, in agreement with Slavia.Nevertheless, everything was played on Friday night in Bratislava, what’s next?last_img read more

Lady Jags clash with traditional rival Suriname tonight

first_imgThe Lady Jaguars will oppose neighbours and traditional foe Suriname tonight from 19:00hrs in a pivotal group-E clash in the CONCACAF Women’s Qualifiers at the National Track and Field Centre, Leonora. Both teams are in similar positions, with the hosts battling to a 2-2 draw with Bermuda in their opener, while Suriname went down 2-1 to Barbados.It will be the fourth meeting of the teams, with the home side starting as the firm favourite due to their unbeaten record against the Dutch nation.In terms of the numbers, Guyana has secured two victories, with the most recent showdown ending 2-2 on April 27th in Trinidad and Tobago at the CFU Women’s Championship. The Lady Jaguars have recorded an impressive total of six goals during this series, with only three goals conceded by the rearguard.  Head-Coach of the Lady Jaguars, Dr Ivan Joseph, following the Bermuda game, said, “Unfortunately it resulted in a tie, both teams are behind Barbados right now. Both teams have to come out and bevictorious, as it will come down to goal differential to get a chance to go forward.” Asked about the concerns of injuries heading into the pivotal clash, Joseph declared, “We are always concerned, we got two starters with injuries before the [Bermuda] game being started and 10 minutes into the game we lost our starting centre-back with injury. Three games in five days is a tough haul, you need the depth of your team with that form.”Joseph added, “In order to move forward no team is going to play only 14players, you are going to need all 19 players to play, as the wear and tear is too much. While I am concerned I am hopeful that our players have the resilience to battle through it.” Group leader Barbados will oppose Bermuda in the earlier fixture at 17:00hrs.last_img read more
