NFL Scouting Combine Event Records

Published on

As the NFL Draft draws closer, players are heading to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this week. 

As normal, there will be a mix of players in attendance, from those who are likely to be top picks (think Caleb Williams and Jayden Daniels), those who are hoping to move up with an impressive display (think Blake Corum and Ladd McConkey), and others who are hoping to get their name on the draft boards of NFL teams.

The combine can be a nerve-racking event with the slightest misstep leading scouts to question a player’s potential impact. Still, it can also be a huge help and deliver a massive boost to players, shooting them up draft boards and giving those players a massive increase in guaranteed money depending on the draft slot.

Amazingly enough, some players who dazzled in previous combines still hold records that they set years ago. Much of the buzz at the event comes from the 40-yard dash, where the record was most recently set in 2017 by then-Washington wide receiver John Ross, who posted a sizzling 4.22 time. But what are the records for all the events?
