If you’re like me, you played a ton of video games all throughout your childhood. Sounds fun, right? I’m not a total dork—I promise.

A lot can happen in a year. That's especially true in football. Injuries, scheme/personnel changes, and general talent degradation all work in ways to change year-over-year player performance.

Ideally, the NFL Combine should answer questions--not create them. At running back specifically, we should make special note of weight-adjusted 40-yard dash times and the three-cone agility drill.
