Since the NFL combine just wrapped up and the league's personnel people have plenty of data to sift through, I wondered which of all the tests used in Indy was the most meaningful.

Obviously, certain tests are more relevant for certain positions -- but this is in terms of the overall application, or barometer. Here is a full list of the drills and tests guys go through at the combine.
