The 2019 NFL Scouting Combine kicks off this week. Here are seven potential standouts.
Things really start to heat up in the NFL when the annual Scouting Combine rolls around. It’s a time where most of the top NFL Draft prospects are in the same place at the same time. They are going through testing, workouts and team meetings.
This is where a lot of teams lay the ground work on the players who they end up selecting. It’s also a time where they start crossing players off their boards.
Most of us pay attention to the workouts like the highly publicized 40-yard dash. However, the medical evaluations and interviews are just as important for the prospects. A terrible interview could completely turn off a team.
For the prospects, they have been training in preparation of this event. They have gone through specific regimens in order to ensure they perform well in the different drills. However, there are just some players who are natural talents and will invariably stand out from the rest.
This list shows several players who are expected to have big performances at the Combine. Each of them should see at least a slight bump in their draft stock after the week has wrapped.
Notice that not all the standouts will be because of their athleticism. Some will also stand out based on their measurables and raw skills.
