Here is a case of the combine really helping to raise someone's draft stock.

Chris Givens has made a name for himself, and not only that, helped himself by running and going through all the rigors of testing in Indianapolis.

The 5'11", 198-pounder from Wake Forest amazed scouts with his speed and quickness at 4.35 seconds in the running drills, and then followed up with strength and endurance by doing 19 reps of 225 pounds each.

Those kinds of stats will get you noticed and drafted, and now Givens is firmly entrenched as a second-round selection and should hear his name called early on Friday evening.

According to Frank Cooney of the Sports Xchange, "Givens seems to be a candidate for the slot position, where his speed should be a matchup issue for defenses. However, while his speed and ability to get open are not a concern, he is not consistent as a receiver."

The reports from cbssportsline.com were used to help with this slider.
