How important is the combine?
Prior to any actual workouts, the NFL combine commences with the players getting weighed and measured, which also renews our obsession over quarters and eighths of inches. We will surely hear much more before the draft begins on May 8 about how Johnny Manziel measured 1/4 inch short of 6 feet. We will also hear about fractions of seconds on 40 times, and there will most likely be leaked results of Wonderlic scores. The combine is just a part of the overall evaluation process, but it is definitely the most glamorous.
