In the 2012, 2013 and 2015 NFL Drafts, three players, in each selection process, were selected¬†from the NFL Regional Combine platform. In the 2016 NFL Draft, four players were selected, making this year’s draft a landmark event for the RC scouting stage.

Wide receiver Trevor Davis (California) and linebacker Jatavis Brown (Akron) went in the fifth round. To wrap up the sixth-round, wide receiver Mike Thomas (Southern Mississippi) and linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill (Eastern Illinois) were tagged.

Thomas was selected by the Los Angeles Rams with the 206-overall pick. Thomas possesses 4.4 speed, great ball skills and will fit comfortably with the talented core of pass catchers in Los Angeles.

Thomas attended the New Orleans-held session, where he displayed great athleticism.

Grugier-Hill can play as a safety as well. When he participated in the RC at the Minnesota-held session, Grugier-Hill was listed as a safety, where he displayed elite speed, power and solid ball skills.

Grugier-Hill’s versatility will eventually prove to be vital for the New England Patriots, who selected him with the 208th-overall selection.
