    Hey everyone. Coming into draft season and thought it would be beneficial to have a breakdown in what to look for from the Combine and ideal scores for each test by position. Did a little research and put this together from a couple different sites and added in parentheses where it may not be obvious what the test is important for.

    What tests to look for from each position.



    Running Backs:

    40

    3 Cone

    Shuttle


    Wide Receivers:

    40

    Vertical (important not only for out jumping DB’s but for explosion off the line)


    Tight Ends:

    40

    Broad Jump (explosion off the line and lower body strength for blocking)

    Bench Press


    Offensive Lineman:

    Bench Press

    10/20 Yard Split (good test to see how fast they can bounce out of a 3 point stance)

    Broad Jump (lower body power for blocking)

    Shuttle


    Edge Rushers:

    3 Cone (change of direction and quick movements vital for beating lineman)

    Bench

    Vertical Jump

    Broad Jump


    Linebackers:

    40 (important for covering the new breed of TE’s)

    Shuttle

    3 Cone


    Defensive Lineman:

    Bench

    Broad Jump

    10/20 Split


    Defensive Backs:

    40

    Shuttle

    3 Cone

    Vertical

    Another measurement to look for is players who have three cone times under 6.9 and short shuttles under 4.4 are more likely to succeed than those who do not. (courtesy of Ask Questions Later)

    Edge rusher should also have short shuttle in it as well.


    Have to know how well their ankle flexion is.
