He blew up after the combine. This is the case for at least one or two players every. single. year. OBJ is a prime example, I remember around Jan or so we felt good about our chances to land him late in the first round. Come draft day he was a lock to go in the top 16. McCaffrey absolutely carried Stanford to a Rose Bowl where he made a great defense look lost. Should have won the Heisman and it shouldn't have been close. At the combine, teams saw he is far more than just a running back and a lot of the myths about him have become debunked. That's why he's risen so much, he's earned it and should be picked in the top 10 imo.
