If you love the National Football League’s Combine – and even if you’re just an occasional visitor to the televised event – here is a guide provided to you by the good folks over at nfl.com. This page will give you the rankings of all workouts at the combine going back to 2006 and through 2012.
When the 2013 Combine is complete, the site will be updated to include the newest information.
But for a complete look at who is best in the 40-yard dash, the bench press, vertical jump, broad jump, three-cone drill, 20-yard shuttle, and 60-yard shuttle, this is the place to be.
Not only can you see who is best in those individual drills, but you can break it down by position. You can see how RGIII and all the quarterbacks did in the 40; you can relive all those hyperventilating moments of the bench press by the defensive linemen; all the harried sprint, stop and reverses involved by the cornerbacks in the 20- and 60-yard shuttles; as well as how all the running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, safeties, offensive linemen, linebackers, and special teamers did in their drills.
It’s a pretty cool tool that can be utilized to compare this year’s group of athletes with those who have competed at the Combine in the past.
You might even want to compare how NFL Network’s Rich Eisen did in his 40 and compare it to the slowest of the offensive linemen.
It’s fun stuff anyway and a way to break up the monotony of having to listen to Mike Mayock drone on about wingspan, core strength and quickness.
Just sayin’ …
