NFL Combine’s winners and losers

INDIANAPOLIS — Two months of training and four days of testing are now in the books after the NFL Scouting Combine concluded Tuesday with defensive backs performing on-field drills. In total, approximately 330 draft prospects — including a record 102 underclassmen — participated in the seven-day combine, the last major event before May’s NFL Draft, save for a few important on-campus Pro Days.

Although most teams use game film and private interviews to compile the bulk of their player evaluations, the combine is still important to measure the best athletes on an even playing field and can make or break a player’s draft stock.
