INDIANAPOLIS — The 2020 NFL Scouting Combine concluded on Sunday evening as the cornerbacks and safeties performed their workouts.

There's been a lot of speed flying around the Lucas Oil Stadium turf, but the defensive backs particularly showed off their speed, quickness and leaping abilities.

Here's how the final day of the Combine shook out.

CORNERBACKS

The consensus top cornerback in this year's draft, Jeff Okudah, showed up and showed out. After briefly leaving the field after taking a tumble during on-field work, Okudah showed off his competitiveness by returning and finishing the drills. He ran a 4.48 in the 40, had the second-best vertical and the top broad jump. His hips and change of direction were outstanding in field work.

The group of potential late first-round/Day 2 cornerbacks seemed to stamp their tickets as well. C.J. Henderson, Troy Pride Jr. and A.J. Terrell showed off great athleticism, and Darnay Holmes was said to be the most impressive DB during the on-field drills according to Deion Sanders. Even though he only did the 40 and bench press on the tests, that's got to count for something.

Lesser-discussed players like Michael Ojemudia and Reggie Robinson II displayed impressive on-field workouts and overall athletic scores, each showing up in the top five of at least one event.

Utah's Javelin Guidry is tied for the fourth-best 40 time among cornerbacks in the last 10 years. He also put up an impressive 21 reps on the bench press.

SAFETIES

Several safeties had a day on Sunday. With Grant Delpit not working out due to an ankle injury, and cramps forcing Xavier McKinney out early, the next wave of safeties in Terrell Burgess, Jeremy Chinn, Kyle Dugger, Josh Metellus, K'Von Wallace and Antoine Winfield Jr., followed by some less-heralded names like Tanner Muse and L'Jarius Sneed all put out a solid day's work with athletic testing and positional work.

Sneed was tops among safeties in the 40 and is tied for fifth among safeties over the last 10 years, and was in the top five in the vertical and broad jumps this year. He and the rest of the aforementioned group dominated the top five of tests among safeties. Dugger's vertical was the third-best among safeties in the last decade, while his broad jump was tied for third-best among safeties in Combine history. Chinn's broad jump was the second-best among safeties in Combine history.

Safeties are one of the most unpredictable position groups when it comes to when they'll be picked in the draft, so these guys likely made themselves some extra cash.
