The NFL Scouting Combine is only a short way away (February 23 through 26), and like every year, there's no doubt in my mind that it will drastically change how the draft plays out.
Before the combine in 2012, Dontari Poe was projected anywhere from the late first round to, more often, the third round. After he blew up the combine, he went to the Kansas City Chiefs at No. 11 overall
The year before, a relatively unknown offensive tackle out of USC showed up with prototypical measurements and fluid movements in the drills. Tyron Smith went ninth overall to the Dallas Cowboys.
This year will be the same, no doubt. Until then, all we can do is project who'll stand out and who will fall flat.
