Short shuttle vs. the three-cone
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.
Making the case for the short shuttle (here's more info on that) is Steve White, a former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Jets defensive lineman and an avid sports junkie. You can read his blog at Passing on the Game.
To keep diving into this -- the argument comes down to cones versus shuttle drills, with no 40-yard dash in sight -- you gotta be an ESPN Insider.
