Background
The NFL Scouting Combine turns 37 this week. It started from humble beginnings and quickly grew into a monster event, but even at such a young age it is now on life support.
Teams quickly realized the advantages of having the top draft prospects come to them instead of each team’s top officials traveling to see prospects individually. Cost wise is was a huge savings.

So unless you’re a team doctor or a draft nut interested in late round picks, the Combine isn’t worth much.
