My guess is most people would choose the 40 yard dash.That's the one I'm least interested in honestly. overated

But my favorite would be the short shuttle. that to me is more of a challenge

btw, are all of these going to be on nfl network?

Yeah, all of them are usually on NFL network.

I am a lineman junkie, so I like watching the D-linemen read and react to see what kind of movement and agility they possess.
-O linemen do a mirror drill and you can tell a lot of how agile they are and if they get low or stand too tall.
- The WR-TE's running the gauntlet and catching passes thrown at them from alternating sides of the field is cool too. Love watching guys catch with their hands instead of their gut.

Of all the events with scoring, I like the bench press. No preparation camp like the 40 to help with your starting technique. Just you, 225lbs and John Lott yelling at you "COME ON MEATHEAD.....LOCK IT OUT!!!!"

Sorry, I am a degenerate that likes to watch the combine.

Though I like all of 'em, I like the short shuttle and the DB read and react the best.
