As Carson Wentz said, this week is about interviewing for the best job in the world. Instead of a suit and tie, though, our boys don spandex and let the rest of the world view them like pieces of meat for days on end. One of my personal favorite Combine drills is the vertical jump. If a guy can’t jump, there’s not a lot of hope of him tipping balls at the line of scrimmage or catching interceptions. This morning, we’re going to take a look at the top five highest vertical jumps in NFL Combine history.
1. 46.0 inches - S Gerald Sensabaugh (2005)
2. 45.5 inches - OLB Cameron Wake (2005)
4. 44.5 inches - CB Byron Jones (2015)
5. 44.0 inches - CB A.J. Jefferson (2010)
