Sammy Watkins looks to solidify his status as a top-10 pick at this week's NFL Scouting Combine.

CLEMSON, S.C.—This week, one of the most pivotal events of the NFL draft calendar takes place in Indianapolis. NFL coaches, scouts and general managers from across the league will gather for the annual NFL Scouting Combine, where 355 draft hopefuls will display their skills in a weeklong exhibition that some call “The Underwear Olympics.”

Players are measured, poked, prodded, tested, interviewed and evaluated in a number of drills, medical tests and team interviews. Do well here, and a player's draft stock can soar.

Bomb out, and his stock can plummet from draftable talent to free-agent fodder.

Coming off an 11-2 2013 season and a top-10 national finish, Clemson has a number of talented alumni in Indianapolis. Quarterback Tajh Boyd, receivers Martavis Bryant and Sammy Watkins, cornerback Bashaud Breeland and offensive tackle Brandon Thomas will be flaunting their wares and skills this week.

Let’s examine what to expect from the talented former Tigers this week.
