Combine Drills and Expectations

New, comments

I thought this was a good overview of the various drills and what each is measuring.  The source is nfl.com.  It also has target times for the various positions; Football Outsiders makes a great point that in part it can depend on how big a player is; so take all these with a grain of salt.
