    Glenn Gronkowski, Kansas State, 6-2, 239

    Gronk didn’t have the type of session to make him an explosive power player, but the 17 reps on the bench were offset by a great few runs in the cones and with a good 10’ broad jump. However, the 4.71 40 was way slow – he’s not an H-Back.
    Projection: Fifth Round

    Quayvon Hicks, Georgia, 6-1, 259

    Really, really big, he was the largest fullback at the Combine, but he’s still getting past a knee injury and didn’t run.
    Projection: Free Agent

    Andy Janovich, Nebraska, 6-1, 238

    While the 40 was a painful 4.81, he was good and quick through the cones and he cranked the bench with 30 reps. Was it enough to get him drafted? Maybe not, but he’ll be a hot post-draft free agent.
    Projection: Free Agent

    Soma Vainuku, USC, 5-11, 246

    It was a great fullback workout with 26 reps on the bench and a good-enough 4.68 40. He’s a future special teamer, and the athleticism showed he could probably do a little bit more.
    Projection: Free Agent

    Dan Vitale, Northwestern, 6-1, 239

    The “Superback” moved and worked out like it, coming up with 30 reps on the bench – beating most of the offensive linemen – with a 38.5” vertical. Throw in the 4.6 40, and he improved his stock.
    Projection: Fifth Round
