    Combine question
    by Rambunctious
    How much weight should the combine be given in determining a players worth?

    I worry it's not realistic because players have weeks and weeks of nothing to do but prepare for a set of tests. They hire professionals to work with them. Do specific exercises and training routines to prepare them. Day in and day out this is their goal.

    But...

    Once they are drafted isn't it more likely they go back to the more familiar routines they showed in college? They will be back to living a more normal life but now with a lot of money.

    I'm sure my worries aren't justified so I'm looking for some answers to make me smarter on this issue.

    I guess to put it simple. Will a guy that runs the 40 in 4.30 be able to perform at that quality during the regular season?

    bonus info...

    Are there more examples of players going on to be great or busts after their stock rises at the combine?

    During his NFL Combine interview, Virginia OT D'Brickashaw Ferguson said he will not work out at the Combine. He has been working out in Orlando and feels he is making good progress there. He did not want to shortchange himself and will wait for his Pro Day on March 21.

    Birth of the Combine

    Do you remember Nolan Cromwell, the defensive back/special teams ace who played for the Los Angeles Rams from 1977-87? As we prepare to cover the 2007 NFL Scouting Combine, we can all thank Cromwell for getting the process started in the first place. Let's explain…

    Before 1977, there was no organized "combine" -- each NFL team would bring in college prospects for interviews and medical evaluations. There were no workouts -- the medical evaluation was really the key component.

    Well, Cromwell was a hot prospect out of Kansas -- problem is, he tore up his knee midway through his senior year. So when it came time for evaluations, Cromwell made the rounds like all the other prospects. He came to the Dallas Cowboys' complex following an overnight flight from Seattle. Dallas was probably the 11th team he was meeting with, so when he ran into Cowboys general manager Tex Schramm in the elevator, he had 10 different sets of X-rays tucked under his arm.

    Cromwell ended up being drafted in the second round by the Rams and making it to four Pro Bowls, but his pre-draft endeavor had another impact on NFL history.

    After he saw Cromwell in that elevator with those X-rays, Schramm just shook his head and said, "There's got to be a better way."

    And since Schramm was on the NFL's Competition Committee, he worked to find that better way. A year later, there were actually three plans in place to have combined evaluations. BLESTO and United (now known as National) were two groups that had a roster of teams coming together. A third group consisted of the Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, San Francisco ***** and Oakland Raiders.

    Our group had a two-day event in which players were brought in on a Friday and put through the physical evaluation process -- of course, it wasn't nearly as comprehensive as it is today. After finishing up the physicals on Saturday morning, they spent about two hours putting players through workouts. By workouts, we're talking about the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, long jump, hop-step-and-jump. It was very limited compared to what it's grown into.

    Eventually, the league was able to further "combine" its efforts in the evaluation process. In 1982, the National Invitational Camp -- better known as the NFL Scouting Combine -- was held in Tampa, Fla., and attended by 163 players. After stints in New Orleans and Phoenix, the Scouting Combine moved to Indianapolis in 1987 and has been there ever since. And the number of prospects in attendance has risen to well over 300.

    How has the process changed since the early days? If Nolan Cromwell were a prospect this year, all of his workouts and evaluations would be on one disk, for any of the 32 NFL clubs to study. He would have X-rays taken at the Combine -- along with MRIs and countless other physical tests...
