While the NFL Scouting Combine is all about the players, there are definite winners and losers among the teams as well.
Some teams, like the Oakland Raiders, have historically drafted players based on their measurables that they display during the bench press, 40-yard dash, and other drills that the combine features.
Other teams, like the Pittsburgh Steelers, traditionally rely more on the interview process in selecting prospects. These teams typically place a higher value on game film when it comes to determining which players that they will target in April.
There are a few things that can go really well for the Steelers at the combine. Some of them will be readily apparent, and some of them won’t become obvious until after the draft. Let’s dive inside the minds of Kevin Colbert, Mike Tomlin and company and discuss what they might be hoping to see at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine.
