Predicting the 5 Fastest Players at the NFL Scouting Combine
Stephan Savoia/Associated Press

The NFL Scouting Combine is the biggest event during the NFL draft process. It's the meeting place for all coaches and general managers. It's the first time that every top prospect is under one roof and competing side-by-side for all scouting personnel to see.

It's the beauty pageant of the NFL, and scouts drool with the performances on display.

The biggest of the events without a doubt is the 40-yard dash. It's the number both fans and evaluators can get the best feel for in terms of what it means about a prospect.

Run in the 4.5s, and you're fast. Run in the 4.4s, and you're really fast. Run in the 4.3s? Your speed alone will likely get you drafted and a shot in the NFL. That's why the 40-yard dash is such a critical factor for evaluators.

Based on film evaluations and a player's past experiences, I've done my best to handicap which players will run the fastest 40 in Indianapolis.
