NFL Combine 2013: Jaguars draft board won't change much

Joe Robbins

David Caldwell says the Jaguars draft board won't change significantly at the NFL combine.

The NFL combine has become a much more public event than it ever was before, as NFL fans from all over now tune in to actually watch athletes go through a gauntlet of workouts on television. There's always much more made of the NFL combine than there should be, as the reality is it doesn't really change a players draft stock one way or another for the vast majority of teams.

What the combine does and should do if you're scouting properly is confirm things or make you go back and watch more tape on a player to see if there was something you missed, which is exactly how Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell feels about the combine.

"I don't think you'd see a player skyrocket for us," Caldwell told John Oehser of Jaguars.com. "But certain teams are different. Other teams may say we want a corner who runs a 4.3, is 6-1, 210 pounds and if someone measures that at the combine, they're taking him. They want him, and they take him."

Generally teams will have their boards close to being set by the time the combine rolls around and will separate players they have graded similarly based on some of their workout numbers. It's also a good time to get some questions into players about their back ground and medical checks before moving on to private workouts.
