Full USC football testing results and measurements from the 2024 NFL Combine

Erik-McKinneyby:Erik McKinney03/05/24


Eight USC Trojans were in attendance at the 2024 NFL Combine in Indianapolis this past week looking to make an impression on NFL scouts and decision makers ahead of April’s 2024 NFL Draft. The group of Trojans elected to participate in a variety of events. Just four ran the 40-yard dash while quarterback Caleb Williams didn’t participate in any testing or medical evaluations.

Here’s a rundown of all the measurements and testing numbers for the Trojans from the combine.

Quarterback Caleb Williams

Height – 6-foot-1 and 1/8
Weight – 214 pounds
Arm length – 32
Hand size – 9 and 3/4

Williams answered questions from the media but did not do any on-field work. He said he’ll throw at the USC pro day on March 20 and will do individual medical evaluations with the teams he visits. That won’t be a long list as Williams understands the short list of teams already at No. 1 or able to move up to No. 1 to take him at the top of the draft.

Running back MarShawn Lloyd

Height – 5-foot-9
Weight – 220 pounds
Arm – 30 and 3/8
Hand – 8 and 3/4

40-yard – 4.46 (T-6th among running backs)
10-yard split – 1.56 (T-14th among running backs)
Vertical – 36.00″ (8th among running backs)
Broad – 9’10” (T-13th among running backs)
Bench – 25 (3rd among running backs)

It was a very good performance from Lloyd among the running backs. That 40 time at 220 pounds is excellent and he showed off his obviously upper body strength on the bench press. NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah said just before Lloyd ran his 40 that he thinks there’s a chance Lloyd could be the first running back taken in the draft.

Wide receiver Tahj Washington

Height – 5-foot-10
Weight -174 pounds
Arm length – 29 and 1/8
Hand size – 8 and 3/8

Vertical – 35 (T-28th among wide receivers)
Broad – 10’2″ (T-23rd among wide receivers)

This is likely going to be Washington’s process up to the NFL Draft. He isn’t going to wow with his size and obviously, the limited testing he did won’t shoot him up draft boards. But he was one of the best receivers doing position drills and has developed over his time at USC into someone who is just going to make plays on the football field. It’ll be interesting to see what his running times are at USC pro day — especially the short-shuttle and three-cone. NFL teams seem to know they’ll be getting a dependable, hard-worker who can make plays on offense and special teams in Washington and the combine didn’t do anything to hurt that.

Wide receiver Brenden Rice

Height – 6-foot-2
Weight -208 pounds
Arm length – 33
Hand size – 9 and 5/8

40-yard – 4.5
10-yard split – 1.55
Vertical – 36.5
Broad – 9’11”
Bench – 13

Rice won’t be happy with that 40-yard time and will likely look to better it at USC’s pro day. Jeremiah said, “He can run faster than that” when Rice posted a 4.51 on his first attempt. Rice ran a really nice gantlet drill and made a tremendous catch on an out route at full speed with the ball down below his knees.

Offensive lineman Jarrett Kingston

Height – 6-foot-4
Weight -306 pounds
Arm length – 32 and 1/8
Hand size – 9 and 3/4

40-yard – 5.02 (9th among offensive linemen)
10-yard split – 1.73 (T-9th among offensive linemen)
Vertical – 31.5 (T-18th among offensive linemen)
Broad – 9’3″ (T-15th among offensive linemen)
3-cone drill – 7.53 (12th among offensive linemen)
20-yard shuttle – 4.47 (T-5th among offensive linemen)
Bench – 32 (2nd among offensive linemen)

Kingston had a terrific combine and might have cemented himself as a draft pick this year. He finished with the No. 2 athleticism score among guards at the combine on the strength of some surprising quickness and expected strength. The 32 reps on the bench press are impressive, but Kingston was the strongest offensive lineman on the team this season, so that number wasn’t surprising. The 20-yard shuttle is what should probably catch some attention. According to Josh Norris of Underdog Fantasy, just 28 offensive linemen since 2010 have recorded a 4.47 short shuttle or faster at the NFL Combine. Of those, 24 were drafted and that group has gone on to start 84% of their NFL games, with some big names included in there. It certainly doesn’t guarantee success, but it’s a number that could catch some attention. Just six linemen hit that 4.47 mark at this combine.

Defensive end Solomon Byrd

Height – 6-foot-3
Weight – 255 pounds
Arm length – 33 and 5/8
Hand size – 9 and 3/4

Byrd took part in position drills but did not do any testing at the combine. Byrd won’t rank among the best-testing defensive linemen, but he’s going to present teams with a solid, dependable option late in the draft or as a free agent.

Cornerback Christian Roland-Wallace

Height – 5-foot-11 and 1/2
Weight – 201 pounds
Arm length – 32 and 1/2
Hand size – 9

Bench – 17 (3rd among cornerbacks)

Roland-Wallace only participated in position drills and bench press and impressed in both. Like with Kingston, the strength and bench press number wasn’t a surprise from Roland-Wallace. He showed really good fluidity during drills and turned in a solid combine for the limited testing he did.

Safety Calen Bullock

Height – 6-foot-2
Weight – 188 pounds
Arm length – 32 and 1/2
Hand size – 9

40-yard – 4.48 (7th among safeties)
10-yard split – 1.51 (T-1st among safeties)

There’s some chatter about teams wanting to see Bullock work out at cornerback and USC fans will remember him starting the final game of his true freshman season at corner. It’s not a position he couldn’t play. But his biggest strength as a defensive player is his ability to cover ground from the middle of the field and it would be surprising if he doesn’t wind up sticking at safety at the next level. He will absolutely have to improve his tackling because that is, without a doubt, the biggest question about Bullock going into the draft. He’s always going to be one of the smoothest-looking safeties during combine drills, and he’ll do it again at USC’s pro day.
