Prior to last weekend, most considered Jaylen Watkins to be the third-best cornerback prospect from Florida in this year’s draft class.

He may have changed some opinions with his performance at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, which concluded Tuesday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Watkins ran the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds, tied for the fourth-fastest time among players at his position. His 22 bench press reps of 225 pounds were tied for the most.

Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson, who at times have been viewed as potential first-round picks, both turned in 40 times of 4.61. Purifoy’s six reps in bench press were the lowest by a cornerback, and Roberson’s eight were tied for the second fewest.

They will have a chance to redeem themselves at Florida’s Pro Day on March 17, but right now their draft stocks are falling while Watkins is earning himself some money.
