• 40-yard dash
The 40-yard dash is the marquee event at the combine. It’s all about speed, explosion and watching skilled athletes run great times. These athletes are timed at 20 and 40-yard intervals. What the scouts are looking for is an explosion from a static start.
Push ups are a test of strength — as many reps as the athlete can get. What is measured here is endurance and core strength.
• Vertical jump
The vertical jump is all about lower-body explosion and power. The athlete stands flat-footed and they measure reach. It is important to accurately measure the reach, because the differential between the reach and the flag the athlete touches is his vertical jump measurement.
• Broad jump
The broad jump is like being in gym class back in junior high school. Basically, it is testing an athlete’s lower-body explosion and lower-body strength. The athlete starts out with a stance balanced and then he explodes out as far as he can. It tests explosion and balance, because he has to land without moving.
• 3 cone drill
The 3 cone drill tests an athlete’s ability to change directions at a high speed. Three cones in an L-shape. He starts from the starting line, goes 5 yards to the first cone and back. Then, he turns, runs around the second cone, runs a weave around the third cone, which is the high point of the L, changes directions, comes back around that second cone and finishes.
• Shuttle run
The short shuttle is the first of the cone drills. It is known as the 5-10-5. What it tests is the athlete’s lateral quickness and explosion in short areas. The athlete starts in the three-point stance, explodse out 5 yards to his right, touches the line, goes back 10 yards to his left, left hand touches the line, pivot, and he turns 5 more yards and finishes.
• The Wonderlic Test
Before athletes are evaluated on their physical abilities, they are evaluated mentally first. The Wonderlic Test is a popular intelligence test used to assess the aptitude of potential prospects for learning and problem-solving in a range of occupations. The score is calculated as the number of correct answers given in the allotted time.
