After a week of being poked and prodded, a week of lifting, running, jumping and being grilled, NFL hopefuls can finally put the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine in their rear-view mirror.
While the combine isn’t the end all, be all when it comes to evaluating talent, it does serve a valuable service. Interviews are critically important, and so is comporting oneself in a professional manner. The latter proved problematic for one of our biggest losers from the combine, which we’ll get to a bit later.
Of course, there are instances when putting up jaw-dropping numbers actually does vault players into the upper echelon of draft prospects, which we saw a few times over the course of the long weekend.
And other times, these types of performances just cement the status of players who were already considered to be the best of the best. This absolutely rings true for the consensus No. 1 player, Myles Garrett, who put on an awe inspiring performance on Sunday.
Taking a look at the past week, these were the biggest winners and losers from the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine.
