Can't wait to see the media get excited over 40 times. Here we go again.

Re: NFL Combine Starts Today!

Waste of time? No
As important as its made out to be? No

It's a useful set of exercises and interviews where the playing field is levelled somewhat. Prospects are tested on common measures rather than reliant on film that shows them against uncommon opponents. But, yes, some of these exercises are of limited (or no) value when testing their ability to operate at a pro level.

For sure, agreed. I just think the media overhypes certain things. Never forget - Troy Apke ran a 4.35 40. I think it's definitely useful for coaching staffs looking to get more information on prospects.

Re: NFL Combine Starts Today!

they should really have them run in pads and cleats.

It does have some importance though, a 4.6 DB is probably never getting past nickel corner, etc. I'd say the interviews are the most important part, but now everyone is so overcoached for those things that it's more of a hunt for red flags than anything else.

Nah, I don't watch BBC very much. We've got Sky over here, plus Netflix etc.
