The combine was originally done to check the health of players before they were drafted. And for that they are still very helpful to teams. The interview process is also a big plus for teams that scout well and know what questions to ask. But the 40, the bench press, all the agility drills, you can't look at all of them without some context.
For instance, may a cb runs a 4.6 40 but does really good in the short shuttle and the 3 cone. And maybe he is 6 feet tall and has a good bench press numbers and reads routs very well. Well if he goes to a zone team, the 4.6 wont hurt him so bad and he will probally be able to play right away.
It just depends on what teams are looking for and how well they know how to scout.

Should take serious because NFL takes it seriously. Many guys become first round picks or fall a round because of combine. Bad 40 times, hurt DB's and WR, low strength numbers hurt line guys. Although none of those numbers of tests help them play on Sunday.

I usually pay attention to the splits on the 40, position drills and finding out about interviews.

It allows you to evaluate/confirm their physical attributes such as speed.Not really a test of how good of a football player they are.
