The combine shows how athletic / fast a player is. Which is certainly an important factor.

Ideally you want an athletic player that produced in college and has good film.

Vontaze Burfict ran a 5+ 40 yard dash

he led the Bengals in tackles and graded very well for several weeks according to PFF

that's how much stock you should put into the combine

I just want a player created by science to play NT that's 7'6", 550 lbs, runs a 4.1 and benches 120 reps. I want him to also have tape where he just picks up O-lineman and throws them into the QB every play.

Well Burfict was a highly regarded prospect coming out. He was called the next coming of Ray Lewis. It wasnt until like that last couple weeks where Mike Mayock called out Burfict that he wouldnt draft him. And off the field issues hurted him a lot. Though, the kid showed he could play during his time at ASU.

As a fan I put more stock into it that most NFL teams.

It's my only real chance to see these players on a level playing field. I don't have access to their practices, their interviews, the coaches' film or their pro days. I think you can tell a lot by how fluid players are in their position drills.

That said film should be the prominent factor in the evaluation of a prospect. I quite like the Senior Bowl too - especially the practices.

If a player doesn't show up on film and he blows up the Combine he's only considered in the 6th/7th round in my opinion. You can always use athletes, but not at the expense of football players.

Julio Jones. The combine skyrocketed him and it should've. You have to match on field production with combine numbers. Without gameday production the workouts are nothing (Terrell McClain). If a player is extremely productive on field but has bad combine numbers lean on game footage. Dwayne Jarretts 4.7 however trumps all

Lets just not blow up the huddle again if a player has a Dontari Poe combine at a position of need
