The NFL Scouting Combine, a widely covered and televised event where former college football stars just run drills, might seem like a silly practice, but the NFL Network broadcasts it for a reason.
Watching some of the greatest athletes in the world show off their abilities will be entertaining as always.
This year's class features a great crop of speedy playmakers like Brandin Cooks and De'Anthony Thomas who will have scouts looking at their stopwatches with wide eyes.
Additionally, the defensive class will boast remarkable physical prospects like Jadeveon Clowney and Khalil Mack, who will jump off the page just as they do in the film room.
