Karan Higdon displays strength and speed at NFL Combine

Higdon performed well, but didn’t participate in every RB drill at the NFL Combine

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Former Michigan running back Karan Higdon fared well on Thursday and Friday at the NFL Combine.

Higdon benched 21 reps of 225 lbs on Thursday, and on Friday put up a better than expected 40-yard dash time.

Higdon also had a 34” vertical and 123” broad jump, and when factoring in Higdon’s 5-9 206 lb frame, Higdon definitely had a good performance at the combine.

While Higdon did well in the events he participated in, he did not participate in agility drills, pass catching drills, or run his 3-cone drill, 20 yard shuttle, and 60 yard shuttle. Higdon isn’t viewed as a top prospect and going through the complete gauntlet of drills could have been an advantageous thing to do, but for whatever reason, Higdon didn’t go that route.

In Higdon’s senior season at Michigan, he rushed for 1,178 yards and 10 touchdowns.
