INDIANAPOLIS — Last week, I published highlights from the first half of my trip to the NFL Scouting Combine. Though defensive lineman Adetomiwa Adebawore’s electric combine performance was my favorite part of the week, plenty of great conversations and moments took place over the weekend. In addition to photo and video content, I freelanced a feature for the Daily Northwestern about the Wildcat players competing at the combine and am hard at work on a longer video package about NU’s bid for four draft picks.
Alabama quarterback Bryce Young has been viewed as QB1 for most of the draft process, though concerns about his size could drop him later in the top 5. Here, he rounds the media circuit after his press conference with reporters.
Michigan State receiver Jayden Reed brings style to the podium. Reed couldn’t quite make that impression on the field, ranking 26th among receivers in NFL.com’s receiver rankings.

Two-time national champion quarterback Stetson Bennett answers questions at his press conference. Bennett has had legal troubles and is the oldest quarterback in his class, but had a strong performance in the combine drills.
Northwestern left tackle Peter Skoronski talks with the media at his press conference. Skoronski could follow mentor and former Wildcat Rashawn Slater into the draft’s top 15 picks.
Former Northwestern players RB Evan Hull and DB Tyler Haskins catch up at the NFL Combine. Hull had a standout performance in the running backs group on the combine’s final day, while Haskins covered the combine for The Draft Network as a member of the media.
Running backs complete drills in Lucas Oil Stadium. After the quarterbacks’ performances on Saturday, the attendance in the stands dwindled.
Northwestern running back Evan Hull races the 40-yard dash. Hull tied Northwestern’s best time with a 4.47, while ranking among the top running backs in most drills.
Some random guy.
On the last rep of the combine, all the running backs took off toward the end zone for a celebration.
