ESPN's Todd McShay notes that Scouts Inc. "really liked [Florida T D.J. Humphries'] movement skills" during tape study.
"He has the potential to develop into a starting left tackle in the NFL, but he doesn't fit for a power running team because he isn't a drive blocker," McShay wrote. "There's also some durability concerns with him. But his workout was very good, with a great 40 (5.12) and short shuttle (4.64) and above-average scores in the bench press (26 reps) and broad jumps (8-8). One measurement concern: His 33 5/8-inch arms are problematic for a left tackle prospect." Humphries also had a vertical jump of 31 inches. McShay believes Humphries would "make sense for the Eagles on Day 2, as they're looking for athleticism at the tackle position over size" and mentioned the Panthers as another possibility.

NFL Network analysts Daniel Jeremiah and Charles Davis both believe Florida T D.J. Humphries will be the No. 1 left tackle in the draft.

They aren't necessarily calling Humphries the best overall offensive lineman, it should be noted. Jeremiah said Humphries, who measured 6-foot-5, 307 pounds at the official combine weigh-in, has "the best feet of any tackle in this draft class." Humphries ran a 5.12 second 40, a 4.64 20-yard shuttle, and had a vertical jump of 31 inches.

Florida T D.J. Humphries received a "go back to school" grade from the advisory committee.

This is one that the committee got wrong and the player got right. In advising Humphries to return to the Gators, the committee was telling him that he wouldn't go in Round 1 or 2. Now, however, Humphries very clearly has a chance to go in Round 1, and there's almost no chance he falls out of Round 2. He told reporters that his "fluid athletic ability" sets him apart. Humphries has more than 20 team interviews scheduled at the combine in Indianapolis.

Florida T D.J. Humphries has more than 20 team interviews scheduled at the combine in Indianapolis.

You won't get a clearer picture that a prospect's stock is rising. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline previously predicted that Humphries will "leave the combine with biggest bump in his draft stock." Humphries ranks No. 18 overall on NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah's board.
Feb 19 - 5:08 PM

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah reports that Florida T D.J. Humphries checked in at 6-foot-5, 307-pounds at the NFL combine.

"Only thing keeping DJ Humphries from being my top OT in this draft was the unknown factor of his size. Checked in at 6'5 307. Works for me," Jeremiah tweeted. Originally Jeremiah had the Florida prospect as his No.2 rated tackle with a first round grade, behind Pitt's TJ Clemmings. It's safe to say, that Humphries should receive a bump up in Jeremiah's next rankings.

Florida T D.J. Humphries made his debut at No. 18 on NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah's board.

"He has a lean, narrow frame with excellent length. In the pass game, he is quick out of his stance and plays with excellent knee bend," Jeremiah wrote. "He has a sharp punch and rarely exposes his chest to defenders. He is smooth to redirect versus counter moves. He does have issues under-setting at times, which allows defenders to beat him on the edge. In the run game, he uses his athleticism to reach/cutoff but he doesn't generate a lot of power at the point of attack. Overall, Humphries lacks ideal girth and experience but he has a very high ceiling as an NFL left tackle because of his quickness, length and athleticism." Humphries is Jeremiah's No. 2 offensive tackle, behind only Pitt's T.J. Clemmings.

Florida T D.J. Humphries played the 2014 season at 280 pounds, according to Tony Pauline.

"Scouts believe Humphries is one of the most athletic tackles in this years class and holds as much upside as any of the top rated blockers," Pauline writes, adding Humphries is working with former Giants offensive lineman William Roberts during the draft process. The Gator tackle now weighs around 300 pounds.

An NFC scout in charge of the SEC points to Florida OT D.J. Humphries' work against Shane Ray as proving the Gator can excel in the NFL.

"What made me really take notice was the way he handled Shane Ray when they played. If you can block that guy, you can play in the league," the scout said. Humphries was a top-20 recruit back in 2012, and is a toolsy prospect who struggled to remain healthy during his career. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Humphries could be a Round 1 pick, according to NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah.

Florida senior T D.J. Humphries has denied that he has decided to enter 2015 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Humphries announced on Twitter that Gainesville Sun had wrongly report on his decision to enter the NFL draft. Humphries was a top-20 recruit back in 2012, and is a tool-shed of a prospect who has struggled to remain healthy during his career, playing in 17 of 24 games the past two years.

The Gainesville Sun reports that Florida senior T D.J. Humphries will declare for the 2015 NFL Draft.

Humphries hasn't publicly confirmed this report, though at least one teammate has tweeted confirmation, and we know the big tackle had sought feedback from the NFL’s draft advisory board. Humphries, a top-20 recruit in 2012, is a tool-shed of a prospect who has struggled to remain healthy during his career. The 6-foot-5, 290-pounder played in only 17 of 24 games the past two seasons.

Florida senior T D.J. Humphries and the Florida offensive line as a whole "deserve a great deal of credit" for Saturday's win against Georgia, wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"The Gators frequently ran behind their 6-foot-5, 290-pound junior left tackle," Rang noted, racking up 418 rushing yards in the 38-20 upset victory. Despite the praise, the article noted that Georgia edge rushing stud Leonard Floyd beat him a few times, mostly on plays featuring supreme athleticism. Humphries, a top-20 recruit in 2012, is a tool-shed of a prospect who has struggled to remain healthy during his career. His draft stock remains heavily dependent on his ability to stay on the field, as well as how he performs down the stretch.

Florida HC Will Muschamp announced senior T D.J. Humphries has a high ankle sprain and a chipped bone in his knee.

Despite the injuries, Humphries is expected to return on October 4 against Tennessee. That would mean missing the next two weeks against Kentucky and Alabama (Florida has a bye on Saturday, September 27). The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Humphries, a top-20 recruit in 2012, was shut down after six games last year due to MCL sprains in both knees. He has all sorts of physical tools, but scouts want to see him learn to stay healthy.
