Top NFL Combine storylines

The quarterback tussle

Make no mistake, this is a very good quarterback class. Headlined by Heisman-winning QB Caleb Williams, it also features the likes of J.J McCarthy, Jayden Daniels, and Drake Maye. These are all players who will be in first-round conversations, and a strong Combine will only encourage those whispers around the league.

It will be interesting to see how McCarthy compares to his classmates. The Michigan product had a scintillating 2023 season that ended in National Championship glory, but he’s still overlooked when discussed with the likes of Daniels and Maye. Can he make a statement in Indy?

Williams, the 2022 Heisman Trophy winner, has opted out, one of many players from both schools who will miss the game due to opting out or entering the transfer portal. (AP Photo/Ryan Sun,File)

The need for speed

It’s very obvious that Marvin Harrison Jr. is the star of this year’s wideout class, but the rest of the group is made up of some very interesting names. There will be a lot of movement in the positional rankings over the next few months and the combine is going to play a large role in that.

Malachi Corley is a name I’m intrigued to get a closer look at. He was one of the big winners at the Reese’s Senior Bowl and a YAC machine who ripped up the turf at Western Kentucky. He should be eyeing a stunning 40-yard dash time.

Combine superstars

The NFL Combine is a place where undrafted guys push themselves into round 5-6, and late-round guys can move up at an alarming rate. The NFL combine is the proving ground for talents hoping to boost their stock and we’ve seen many sharp risers over the years.

Byron Jones changed his entire career trajectory with a record-breaking broad jump, while Anthony Richardson proved just how freakishly athletic he is, convincing the Colts to take a huge shot on him – one that showed early signs of paying dividends before injury.

Who will this year’s biggest Combine heroes be?
