Nothing earth-shattering came out of the NFL Combine but it is the place to get the measureables of a player objectively gathers. It is not unusual for players to get their stats inflated by their college athletic departments. So far this is looking like a moderate to weaker draft for fantasy relevance. There may not be any quarterbacks, running backs or tight ends taken in the first round. After such a tremendous quarterback class in 2012, this one shapes up as having far less expectations and Geno Smith may be the only early one take if even he is gone by the second round.
One notable did come out of the combine. This is a very fast set of wideouts. Marquise Goodwin of Texas set the mark with a 4.27/40 (only .05 behind Chris Johnson's record). Ryan Swope (Texas A&M), Kenny Stills (Oklahoma) and Josh Boyce (TCU) all turned in the rare sub 4.4 mark in the 40 yard dash.
Many of the best players did not participate in all drills either as they will be conducting their own Player Day and may work out for individual teams as well.
