I mean, obviously the combine isn't perfect. But cmon - it tests speed, pressing power, agility, jumping ability etc. All crucial skills for playing in the NFL. That part's important. The skills they can't pick up on from the combine come from scouting them on the field.

But to suggest they'd be better off doing something like Fran doesn't make much sense IMO. The combine isn't that bad.

Yeah I understand.

I was just saying that some scouts put a ton of stock into the combine and have created some of histories greatest monsters as a result. See: Boller, Kyle

Re: So Crossfit Football Combine....

Ask Mike Mamula if doing well at the NFL combine paid dividends in draft position...or (insert every other guy that gets picked a day early because of combine feats).

Yeah the combine is important period. There is a good variety of tests that are applicable to football IMO. I don't think it needs to be changed much.

I see that this was xcld. Funny listening to Deion Sanders and Michael Strahan they didnt understand why so much is put into the combine when you never have to bench press 225 in a game.

Deion was the record holder for a while in the 40-yd and his draft stock reflected that. One also correlates to the other, Deion was really fast which is a big part of what made him a good defender.
