The 2014 NFL Scouting Combine will be a critical factor in determining how the NFL draft will shake out this coming May.

While players have spent all season putting their talents on display in live game action, the combine breaks down prospects even further, zeroing in on their measurables and testing for strength, speed and athleticism. 

For some, the combine can expose key weaknesses or flaws. But for others, the week-long pre-draft event provides an opportunity to get on the radar. 

With the full participant list having been announced for 2014 via NFL.com, let's take a closer look at who and what fans can expect to see in Indianapolis this winter. 

 

When: Wednesday, Feb. 19, through Tuesday, Feb. 25

Top Storylines to Watch For

Will Jadeveon Clowney Deliver? 

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

South Carolina Gamecocks superstar Jadeveon Clowney has been talked about as the potential No. 1 overall selection in the 2014 NFL draft for over a year now. Clowney recently added fuel to the fire by hyping himself up ahead of February's combine, per The State's Josh Kendall:

Despite his confidence, Clowney will be under immense pressure to perform at the combine. 

At 6'6", 274 pounds, Clowney is a freak athlete with tremendous speed, power and burst. There's no doubt he's capable of putting up eye-popping numbers in Indianapolis, but will he be motivated to do so?

NFL media analyst Bucky Brooks is one of many singing Clowney's praises ahead of the combine, per NFL.com's Dan Greenspan:

Clowney can single-handedly destroy game plans with his speed, quickness, athleticism and power off the edge. Scouts may question his maturity and work ethic based on a few on- and off-field hiccups, but there is little doubt that he is the top defensive prospect on the board.

In addition to impressive numbers, scouts will want to see the same intensity Clowney showcased as a sophomore in 2012, when he recorded 23.5 tackles for a loss, 13 sacks and three forced fumbles. 

 

How Will Top Quarterbacks Fare? 

While there aren't many elite quarterback prospects available in 2014, there is certainly plenty of talent from which to choose. 

Eligible underclassmen Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M), Teddy Bridgewater (Louisville) and Blake Bortles (Central Florida) headline the list of available signal-callers. They are joined by seniors such as AJ McCarron (Alabama), Tajh Boyd (Clemson) and Derek Carr (Fresno State).

With several NFL franchises in need of a quarterback this offseason, each of the aforementioned prospectsor at least those participating in the combinewill be looking to capitalize and set themselves apart from the pack.

But no quarterback will be under more scrutiny than 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Manziel, who plays an electrifying brand of football and has become a polarizing college football personality over the past two years.

NFL analyst Bucky Brooks considers Manziel the second-best quarterback available behind Bridgewater and highlights his improvement and potential as big reasons why, via NFL.com: 

"Manziel's sensational improvisational game evokes memories of Fran Tarkenton and Doug Flutie. Yet, it is his dramatic progress as a pocket passer that has some scouts convinced he could be a star in a wide-open offense."

The redshirt sophomore threw for nearly 8,000 yards and rushed for more than 2,100 yards during two seasons as the starter in College Station.

 

Sammy Watkins Poised to Impress

Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins will head to the combine with lofty expectations following a stellar junior season with the Tigers.

Watkins, who boasts ideal size (6'1", 205 pounds) and unrivaled top-end speed and hands, caught 101 passes for 1,464 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2013 to boost his draft stock considerably. 

Unsurprisingly, many scouts, including Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, consider Watkins to be the top wide receiver available in 2014:

While teams looking to draft him will likely want to know more about his 2012 arrest stemming from marijuana possession, Watkins is sure to win over even more NFL scouts and coaches with his skill and athleticism at the combine. 

You can bet that all eyes will be on Watkins during the 40-yard dash and wide receiver drills.
