Day Three: John Cominsky, Charleston (WV)
Do not forget the name of John Cominsky. While he may be a small school division II prospect from the Charleston (WV), he has the necessary traits to succeed at the next level under the right coaching. Not to mention he is a freak athlete with ideal size coming off the edge, and could give the Buccaneers flexibility to play both interior defensive end and outside linebacker in defensive coordinator Todd Bowles’ 3-4 scheme.
Cominsky’s fortunes began to rise after he received a Senior Bowl invitation, went down to Mobile, Alabama and was able to practice on the same field with the likes of Montez Sweat, Andre Dillard, and Charles Omenihu. After a solid week at the Senior Bowl, Cominsky got an invite to the combine, where he was really able to shine and put his name on the NFL radar.
At 6’5 and 286 pounds, Cominsky faired extremely well and proved while he may be from a small school, he can hang with the big boys. He ran a 4.69 second 40 yard dash, hit 22 reps on the bench press, 33.5 inches on his vertical jump, and 9’8 feet on his broad jump. He capped off his well-rounded performance by displaying great agility by running nearly a seven-second flat 3-cone drill.
The floor for Cominsky looks like the fifth round, while the ceiling could be as high as a late day-two pick. Realistically if the Buccaneers want to get their hands on Cominsky, they would be wise to use their fourth round pick or trade back into the late fourth round if he is still on the board.
