By the Numbers: Breaking down the most important times, measurements and more from the 2020 NFL Combine

We're back in Berea and digging through the numbers after a busy, busy week in Indianapolis.

Here are the most important ones to know.

4.39 - That's the 40-yard dash time for Clemson LB Isaiah Simmons, who posted the fastest time of anyone at his position and tied for seventh-fastest among all who participated in the event. The versatile defender did a little bit of everything in college, and he's expected to be a top-10 selection in the draft because of it.

4.85 - That's the 40-yard dash time for Iowa OT Tristan Wirfs, who showed off some freakish athletic abilities in a variety of drills all while weighing 320 pounds. His vertical leap of 36.5 inches was 2 inches better than any of the other offensive linemen and surpassed some of the top-rated wide receivers in this year's draft class.

7.26 - Ezra Cleveland didn't have quite the hype of some of the other offensive tackles at this year's Combine, but he may have some more name recognition now after a blazing three-cone drill that was better than any other offensive lineman. He also posted the best 20-yard shuttle time, too. Cleveland, who was also among the best on the bench press, could be an option for the Browns if they look to address their need at tackle after the first round.

42 - That's the number of inches S Kyle Dugger leaped to post the best vertical of any of the safeties at the Combine. Dugger hails from Lenoir-Rhyne and has quickly emerged as one of the better safeties in the entire class. What might make him even more valuable to a team like the Browns is his return abilities. Dugger returned two punts for touchdowns and averaged 14.6 yards per return in his seven games as a senior.

364 - That's the weight Louisville's Mekhi Becton posted in his official Combine check-in. It didn't seem to hold him back much in the 40-yard dash, where he posted a time of 5.11 seconds -- plenty good enough for one of the draft's top tackles.

33 - Ohio State's Davon Hamilton repped 225 pounds 33 times on the bench press, the best total of any defensive lineman. Hamilton, who is considered a mid-round pick, caught the eye of NFL.com's Chad Reuter, who included Hamilton in his "Winners" group from the Combine. "He should be taking another step up draft boards thanks to his combine performance. He impressed me with his movement skills on the various on-field drills," Reuter wrote. "He kept his center of gravity low throughout the workout, pounded the bags as he slalomed through them and presented some nice bend in the new run-the-hoops drill."

6.78 - That's the three-cone drill time for Dayton TE Adam Trautman, who posted the best time of anyone at the position. He was also a top performer in the vertical. Trautman is poised to be Dayton's first draft pick since the 1970s, falling in the Day 2 discussion among most draft analysts.

4.42 - That's the 40-yard dash time for Notre Dame WR Chase Claypool. It's a solid time compared to the rest of the wide receivers, but it was deemed remarkable because Claypool is 6-foot-4 and 238 pounds. Earlier in the week, Claypool had gotten some feedback that he might be better suited at tight end. That talk has quelled a bit since.

25 - That's the number of times Michael Turk, a punter from Arizona State, repped 225 pounds on the bench press. That was easily the most for any specialist considering only one other even attempted it. It was tied for the second-most of any specialist since 2006.
