Al Davis Memorial Combine Freaks: Linebacker

USA TODAY Sports

In honor of the late Al Davis, we name the best athletic performances in the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine among the linebackers.

Having speed at the linebacker position for the Raiders while Al Davis was still around was important. With the corners locked in man defense, the linebackers were often needed to drop into coverage or track down a running back in the open field.

In 2006, the top two linebackers in the 40-yard dash both became Raiders - Jon Alston (4.40) and Thomas Howard (4.42). Howard became a good starter for the Raiders and Alston was a valuable special teams contributor.

Here are the top athletic performances by Linebackers in the 2013 NFL scouting combine:

OLB Zaviar Gooden - Best 40-yard dash (4.47), 4th in reps bench press (27), 2nd in broad jump (10'11"), best three cone (6.71), best 20-yard shuttle (4.18), best 60-yard shuttle (11.28)

OLB Cornelius Washington - 2nd in 40-yard dash (4.55), most reps bench press (36), 2nd in vertical leap (39.0), 3rd in broad jump (10'8")
