With the NFL Scouting Combine concluded, reflection begins as thoughts are sorted from the week in Indianapolis. Some prospects were definitely winners and others might have been disappointing, but it is also important to contextualize those disappointments. Here are some of the players who could have been viewed as losers and why their stock may not actually be impacted.


Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

Burks ran a 4.55 seconds 40-yard dash, which was in line with what he had run for NFL teams previously. There had been buzz that he would test quicker and his film backs that up. He jumped 33 inches vertically and 122 inches in the broad jump, in addition to running a 7.28 second 3-cone drill; those numbers were also also below average. 

The wide receiver pecking order always seemed rather clustered with Ohio State's Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave, USC's Drake London, Alabama's Jameson Williams and Burks. He may have taken a step or two back in that particular group but teams should lean on what he put on tape this season.
