The 2017 NFL annual meeting to evaluate incoming talent has now come and gone. Over the course of 5 days yesterday's collegiate stars filed into Indianapolis Convention Centre to be poked, measured and grilled in one of the longest interview processes in modern sports.

The final day of on-field drills set the stage for defensive backs to show up and shine on a large stage that will be guaranteed to be attended by all 32 NFL franchises, unlike the sporadic attendance and mind games employed entering  the upcoming pro days.

Rayshawn Jenkins

The last time Rayshawn Jenkins made headlines he was throwing hands to helmet at the Senior Bowl. This time around Jenkins was making noise with his performance.

Bench Press: 19 reps

40-yard Dash: 4.51 official

Vertical Jump: 37 inches (T-4th best among safeties)

Broad Jump: 128 inches (10.7 feet) (3rd among safeties)

Jenkins had a great day. No, an AMAZING day! He outran plenty of corners and was given props for his fluidity during drills.

Jamal Carter Sr.

Bench Press: 19 reps

40-yard Dash: 4.64 official

Vertical Jump: 35 inches (5th among safeties)

Broad Jump: 122 inches (10.2 feet) (6th among safeties)

Carter turned in a solid day as he was just slightly behind Jenkins in many of the benchmarks.

Corn Elder

40-yard Dash: 4.55 official

After having a somewhat brief appearance in the Senior Bowl a month ago, it wasn't too clear how much Corn would do in Indy. He did run the 40, opting to hold off on other drills until pro day likely. While some have criticized the 4.55 as being slow for a corner, it's a decent time for a player that will compete immediately for playing time wherever he gets drafted.
