As the slate of NFL pro days continues to wind down, the events keep spitting out strong performances by many prospects and rearranging the 2016 NFL draft outlook.
It's a rather quiet time compared to the rest of the sporting world, but an important one nonetheless as the draft process gets ready to step back into the spotlight with March Madness ending.
While folks will rarely hear about a bad pro-day performance, some certainly classify as more important than others. It's sifting through the waves of headlines and figuring out which ones are worth the time that is tricky.

Notre Dame's Ronnie Stanley won't receive the same level of hype as Laremy Tunsil, but a strong showing at the program's pro day has the NFL talking.
Stanley had a few questions marks left about his stock going into the event, namely whether he could man the left side of a line on his lonesome.
Consider the question answered, as NFL.com's Gil Brandt summed up an elite athletic performance by Stanley:
Did the short shuttle in 4.68 seconds and the three-cone in 7.96 seconds. He also had 24 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Stanley had a lights-out workout, showing that he can definitely play left tackle. The offensive line coaches in attendance worked Stanley and Martin very hard, and the two hung in there until the very end of the drills.
There were questions around Stanley's stock because, honestly, this isn't the best class for the offensive trenches and it certainly doesn't help that it continues to get harder and harder to draft the area.
As NFL.com's Chris Trapasso pointed out, the pro day meshes well with film:
Call it perfect news for a team like the Baltimore Ravens, as it keeps Stanley in the top-10 conversation.
Baltimore stands in an odd spot when it comes to need, but Stanley provides much-needed depth and options in the offensive trenches as the team continues to rebuild the offense around Joe Flacco.
23. Minnesota Vikings: Josh Doctson, WR, TCU
Most of the buzz at wideout as of late has centered on Corey Coleman, but TCU's Josh Doctson helped change the conversation a bit with a strong pro day.
Once considered too small for college ball, Doctson comes in at 6'2" and 202 pounds off a season in which he posted wild numbers, making it two strong years in row:
Doctson is much more than numbers, though.
A strong route-runner, Doctson is one of the best in class when it comes to going up and getting the ball at its highest point. While more strength to best press coverage would be nice, putting on size at the NFL level shouldn't pose much of a challenge.
Minnesota is one of the most obvious teams in the running for a wideout this year, so the Vikings making Doctson don a different shade of purple makes sense. With Cordarrelle Patterson a bust, Mike Wallace gone and only Stefon Diggs to speak of, Doctson has a role right out of the gates.
Based on his ability to go up and get the ball, a trait he reinforced at TCU's pro day, he'll be pretty successful right away, too.
29. Arizona Cardinals: Nile Lawrence-Stample, DT, Florida State
Many names clutter the interior defensive line when it comes to the 2016 class, so it isn't much in the way of a shock to find out a lesser-known name used a pro day to jump his peers.
Nile Lawrence-Stample out of Florida State is the topic here, a 6'1", 320-pound force who came on late with the Seminoles but has put on repeated strong performances on the path to the draft.
The latest was Florida State's pro day, where he put up strong agility numbers to prove he is much more than simply a run-stuffing presence.
As NFL.com's Lance Zierlein had previously mentioned in a writeup detailing Lawrence-Stample's strengths, quickness is a surprisingly big part of his game:
"Stubby, but stout lower body. Decent lateral movement and is a willing chaser down the line. Has quickness off the snap to attack a gap and stress the edge. Better as aggressive upfield player than read-and-react two-gapper. Very good vision into backfield and keeps running back locked in."
As a team with little in the way of immediate needs, the Arizona Cardinals should have an interest in Lawrence-Stample. The addition of Chandler Jones helps the line, but remember that Corey Peters is still on his way back from a torn Achilles.
Near the end of the round, an insurance policy with the chance to start for years to come makes Lawrence-Stample a smart pick for the Cardinals, should his stock remain at this height.
