NFL Combine 2012 Results: Which Players' Rising Stock Should We Buy Into?
A number of players are going to elevate their stock at the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine. The numbers they post in Indianapolis, however, could very well be deceptive.
The numbers alone don't determine draft status as there are a number of other factors that play into evaluating a player.
People have a tendency to get carried away with impressive numbers, though, and not everyone who impresses is going to succeed.
You can buy into these players' rising stock though.
David Wilson, RB, Virginia Tech
The Hokie senior's tape shows an all-around running back prospect with great athleticism. His 4.49 40-yard dash, 41-inch vertical leap and 11-foot broad jump showed just that.
He's arguably the second-best running back in the draft and solidified himself as a first-round pick.
Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
The most prolific receiver in Notre Dame history is a well-known touchdown scorer. Question marks surround his ability to separate at the next level, but he dispelled that notion in Indy. Floyd ran 4.47 in the 40-yard dash and posted a 36.5-inch vertical leap.
He's firmly in the first round and the likely No. 2 receiver off the board.
Isaiah Pead, RB, Cincinnati
The reigning Big East Offensive Player of the Year and Senior Bowl MVP continues to impress in the draft process with a great showing in Indy.
He ran 4.47 in the 40 and jumped 33.5" in the vertical leap. At 5'10", 197 pounds, he's a leaner athlete with an all-purpose mentality.
Bruce Irvin, DE/OLB, West Virginia
The Mountaineers defender is blowing up in Indy. He ran an unofficial 4.43 40 this morning and has shined in positional drills.
Irvin, at 245 pounds, is a tweener and very likely an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense at the next level.
He could find a way into the first round.
You can catch me runnin' on Twitter too.
