NFL Scouting Combine 2012: The Best And Worst In Indy

With the NFL Draft less than two months away, teams are scrambling to reset their draft boards after an eventful NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Some players did what most expected (Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck) while many helped their stock quite a bit.

Nobody did more for themselves than Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill. After being in the option offense down South, many wondered just how good he really is. While his route running and consistency are still questionable, Hill lit up the combine with a 4.36 40-yard dash. Perhaps just as important, he made great catches including one with full extension.

Another man who made himself some money was Boston College's Luke Kuechly. Projected by many as a first round pick, there were whispers he would drop after the combine exposed his lack of speed. The opposite ended up happening as he ran 4.50 and 4.59 times, among the leaders for linebackers.

On the other end of the spectrum, Vontaze Burfict had a brutal showing. Already saddled with maturity and mental makeup questions, Burfict showed up out of shape and ran the 40-yard dash in over five seconds. The Arizona State product is looking like huge question mar amidst all of his problems.

One of if not the biggest story coming out of the Hoosier State is how much it's going to cost for the right to draft RG3. The Rams hold the second overall pick and look like they'll receive multiple first round picks among other things. St. Louis is sitting pretty in the catbird seat.
