Draft season is now in full swing. As we march through the evaluation process, one of the most popular stops is the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
In case this is your first draft rodeo, the Combine is where draft prospects meet with teams, get checked out by medical staffs, and most importantly for dynasty players, perform a variety of athletic drills.
Opinions vary far and wide on how much weight those drills carry. Some feel that if a player falls below a standard threshold, then he is not as good of a prospect. The reverse is also true for some, that if a player tests above those thresholds, he could be a hidden gem. Others see the Combine as having little-to-no value in their evaluation, as the drills that players are asked to do are removed from actual football. For most though, the Combine is another data point in an overall evaluation.
As is the case with all of these comparative events, there are always winners and losers. Let’s get down who made, and lost, money last weekend.
