Top 10 NFL Combine Performers
The NFL Combine continues to fascinate, despite its being such a poor predictor of NFL success. This list, and historical evidence, bears this out: you'd be hard pressed to fit this list's 10 players' career paths into one category - let alone two or even three. And yet combine performances can still make or break a prospect's draft prospects.
This year's "workout warriors" are Chris Conley of Georgia and Byron Jones of UConn. Conley, a wide receiver, smashed every test, setting records for the vertical and broad jumps, with marks of 45 inches and 11-foot-7, respectively, and clocking a 4.35 in the 40. His broad jump record didn't last long, however. Jones obliterated it by eight inches, breaking the 12-foot mark with a 12-foot-3. A Vine of Jones' jump has been shared on Twitter nearly 50,000 times. Either player could be a revelation or a bust, but both have made themselves must-evaluate draftees.
For a look back at some of the best from the combine's past and how they turned out in the pros, we've selected our Top 10 NFL Combine Performers or All Time.
