True, but a little misleading. More often than not, the combine drops people in their ranking rather than moves them up-at least that is what the combine is supposed to do-. If a player has good film as a WR and rolls up a 4.7 40 time he is going to drop in the rankings because of statistics and the law of averages...there simply aren't very many good WR with speed that slow. That doesn't mean they aren't good (i.e. boldin, J. Rice etc) but it means that it is less likely that they are good. This is the point of the combine.

If you have a scout that actually moves someone up their rankings because of the combine than you have a problem with that scout. The more likely occurrence is that the player stayed where they are in the rankings and those ahead of him dropped due to very poor performances.

Alright.......time to start making some predictions. Who will be the riser and fallers based on their performance at the Combine. I'll start..........

Potential riser on the offensive side - Bruce Campbell OT Maryland. The guy will show strength, speed and decent feet during workouts. He will still have to answer questions about his injury history and his lack of experience.

Potential riser on the defensive side - Sergio Kindle OLB/DE Texas. Workout numbers should be eye popping.

Potential fallers on the offensive side - Toby Gerhart RB Stanford. Even though he is a beast on the field, he may not have the measurables that will amaze at the Combine.

Potential faller on the defensive side - Terence Cody DT Alabama. Everyone saw THE photo of Cody at the Senior Bowl. If he hasn't shed a ton or two by the Combine, his stock will drop.

I hope so, he would be a great second or third round pick.

I'd love to get Mount Cody with our 2nd/3rd rounder.

If you were the Colts would you take him at the end of the 1st? (Had this discussion with a friend last night)

Not unless he loses a significant amount of weight, plus the fact that he's a much better fit for a 3-4 defense and the Colts run a 4-3.
Can't wait til next week.

YES! Going to buy a 30-rack tomorrow so I can sit and watch the combine allll daaaay
In a video posted on YouTube a month ago, South Florida DE Jason Pierre-Paul performed 14 consecutive back flips during a competition with USF LB Kion Wilson.
Wilson, the Bulls' leading tackler and a projected late-round pick, did eight back flips. Pierre-Paul, who translates as a possible 3-4 rush linebacker at the next level, is undoubtedly going to have a big week at the Combine.

I watched the you tube video, it is pretty amazing.
