2015 NFL Combine results: 40 times and bench press numbers for RBs, WRs and QBs

A mixed bag of results came from Indianapolis Saturday as the running backs, wide receivers and quarterbacks went through their individual drills.

Here are the times and reps for the tight ends and the offensive linemen taken from the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine.

Running backs

It was a somewhat disappointing speed performance from the running backs, but this class is more about quickness than long speed. It's just odd, in a year where many are predicting the return of the running back in the first round (there hasn't been one taken in the past two drafts), so many of them ran in the 4.6 range.

It was expected that Minnesota's David Cobb - a possible target of the Steelers - would have run in that 4.6 range as well, but he appeared to injure a quadriceps about midway through the run, and logged a 4.81.

Here are the bench and 40 numbers for the running backs.

Wide receivers

This is another excellent receivers class, particularly at the top. West Virginia's Kevin White gave scouts plenty of reason to believe he's for real after running a 4.35 40 and benching 225 pounds a position-high 23 times. Alabama's Amari Cooper was also impressive, running a 4.41, as was Louisville's DeVante Parker, who put up 17 reps on the bench and ran a 4.45.

Keep an eye on William & Mary's Tre McBride, who tested well and looked solid in drills.

Here are the times and reps for the wide receivers.

Quarterbacks

As expected, Oregon QB Marcus Mariota was the talk of the quarterbacks group. It shouldn't be seen as a surprise he greatly out-performed Jameis Winston, his rival for the top pick, in the 40-yard dash. Mariota clocked a 4.52, the highest among the quarterbacks and the fastest for a quarterback since Robert Griffin III ran a 4.41 in 2012.

Winston ran a 4.98.

Here are the 40 times for the quarterbacks.
