The annual NFL Scouting Combine is the only pre-draft event each year in which a vast majority of the draft’s top prospects have the opportunity to compete against one another on an equal playing field.
This year’s top combine standouts included some of the draft’s biggest names, such as Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson and Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert.
There were also many lesser-known and/or small-school prospects, such as Georgia Southern running back Jerick McKinnon and Montana linebacker Jordan Tripp, who made names for themselves by running fast, jumping high, displaying strength in the bench press and/or standing out in positional skill drills.
Altogether, the most impressive workouts were ones that included not only a strong set of numbers across the board but were also completed with an impressive display of translatable skills in on-field drills.
While there were many draft prospects who appeared to raise their respective stock with strong showings this year in Indianapolis, the following 25 put together the strongest performances from top to bottom.
