The Biggest Surprises from the NFL Scouting Combine
Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis usually brings a fair share of surprises. This past version of the event wasn't any different. 

A ton of what were considered mid-round running back prospects impressed with their workouts and drills. Johnathan Franklin and Giovani Bernard were two of the most impressive to me. 

Meanwhile, a couple under-the-radar offensive linemen also stood out. Following a solid Shrine Classic performance, small-school offensive tackle prospect Terron Armstead dazzled scouts with the best 40 for an offensive lineman in the history of the annual event.

Meanwhile, the likes of Brian Schwenke and Jonathan Cooper opened my eyes a great deal. 

A certain quarterback, pictured above, also placed himself into the limelight by building off an MVP performance at the Senior Bowl. Meanwhile, another quarterback that I was high on fell flat on his face. 

It was, however, a couple of defensive linemen going in a different direction that caught my eye. Damontre Moore had one of the worst performances in Indianapolis, while Margus Hunt rebounded from a lackluster Senior Bowl to show us why scouts are extremely high on him. 

Today's article is going to focus on a few different surprises from the annual event that caught my attention.
