Combine Dish: Suh outshines McCoy in duel of top prospects

INDIANAPOLIS — Monday was another high-profile day at the NFL Scouting Combine, as defensive linemen — including top prospects Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy — and linebackers took center stage. Sporting News draft expert Russ Lande and his team of former NFL scouts analyze the biggest moments of the day:

Suh had a very good day, looking very agile, quick and athletic throughout his workout. Though McCoy had a solid day, most came away saying Suh outperformed McCoy. There was also some lingering surprise at McCoy being able to record only 23 reps in the 225-pound bench press. Suh, meanwhile, put up 32 reps. Suh (6-3 7/8, 307) posted times of 5.02 and 5.09 in the 40 and recorded a vertical jump of 35 1/2. McCoy (6-4 1/8, 295) posted times of 5.00 and a 5.10 in the 40 and a vertical jump of 30 1/2.
