The combine is not the only tool used when evaluating, but the numbers from the combine do play a very important role in prospect evaluation. These numbers can help solidify a team’s big board. They can even put some new prospects on the radar. Numbers from the combine or pro days also help complete Relative Athletic Scores (RAS) which some teams take very seriously (i.e. the Packers). Another important note from the combine is that the Packers have yet to talk with Bryan Bulaga and his agent. This could very easily put offensive tackle on the table at pick 30. Let’s take a look at the watch list players along the offensive line including a few new names and see how they fared at the NFL Combine.
