Three Terps — running backs Anthony McFarland Jr. and Javon Leake, as well as safety Antoine Brooks Jr. — competed at the NFL Combine this past weekend, eager to impress scouts ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Here’s a look at how the trio did in Indianapolis.

Anthony McFarland Jr.

McFarland impressed at the combine in perhaps the most important drill for a running back — the 40-yard dash. He ran an official 4.44, which ranks fourth among his position group.

But despite the impressive time, McFarland had the second-worst vertical jump among running backs at 29.5 inches and the third-worst broad jump at 116.0 inches.

The former Terp reportedly met with the Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans while in Indianapolis.

Javon Leake

Leake generated some buzz after impressive measurements at the combine, but he didn’t have a strong performance in the 40-yard dash, running an official 4.65 — the fourth-worst among his position group. He does still have a chance to run a better time at his pro day later this spring though.

The former Terp did quite well in the broad jump though, going for 125.0 inches, which is tied for fifth among running backs. He also recorded a 34.0 inch vertical jump.

There has been little reported on what teams Leake met with at the combine. He finished the weekend with the best prospect rating of any Terp at 6.20, per

Antoine Brooks Jr.

Brooks also struggled in the 40-yard dash, running a 4.64, which ranks fourth-worst among the safety group.

He was around the middle of the pack with a 34.5 inch vertical jump, but impressed with 18 reps on the bench press.

The former Terp reportedly met with the Green Bay Packers, though it’s unclear what other teams he talked to in Indianapolis.
