Top Vertical Jumps at the 2024 NFL Combine by Position

The vertical jump is one of the most important drills at the 2024 NFL Combine for measuring how explosive a prospect is. In the drill, NFL Draft prospects aim to jump as high as possible from a standing start.

Similar to the broad jump, the vertical jump displays a player’s athleticism, explosive movement, and lower body strength within context. Due to the height, weight, and athleticism needed to be successful in this drill, the most successful measurements come from wide receivers and defensive backs.

Those two positions require the most elevation capacity, utilizing it to compete at the catch point. The higher a player gets and the more explosive a prospect can be, the more translatable that becomes for NFL teams.

Therefore, it is unsurprising that the record holders in the vertical jump are a wide receiver and a cornerback. WR Chris Conley jumped 45” in 2015, equalling the record set by CB Donald Washington in 2009. The top-10 all-time highest vertical jumps are from receivers, defensive backs, and tight ends.

However, this year, there is an exciting crop of prospects with bounds of athleticism, so could we see the record broken at the 2024 NFL Combine?
