    The combine is about the athlete it not necessarily about the player. It cant find you the player but it will find you the athlete. The athlete are Bruce Cambell, Poe and Stephen Peau. The player are Miles, Romo, Burflict and Alfred Morris that were not discovered by the combine.

    It’s great for assessing health status and getting a feel for the personality of a player. Maybe his superior talent was good enough on the lower level. But how will he respond mentally when supremely tested by the world’s best players? Will he accept the challenge, work harder, and persevere? Or maybe pout, become a cancer, or even give up during games? Personality traits can give hints to this. Also, if a guy just has utterly miserable drill results, that’s another thing to give some consideration.

    However, performing very well, on par, or somewhat below average on combine drills changes nothing. The best way to assess players is watching film of relevant past performances, getting to know a player as a person, and determining health status. The rest to me is background noise, and sadly so many fall for the facade of lofty drill performance. As Kenny Powers said, “I play real sports, I don’t try to be the best at exercising.” lol
