The single most overrated day in the NFL Offseason, by NFL General Managers and Dynasty leaguers alike is the NFL Scouting Combine. Inevitably, nearly everyone over-reacts to the standout performances, especially when they are not accompanied by strong college production. We know that athleticism is important for running backs, but does it matter as much for wide receivers?
Parris Campbell recorded 14.6 yards per reception in his junior season, and just 11.8 in his final year at Ohio State, indicating that he is unlikely to be a deep ball threat at the next level, despite a 4.31-second (100th-percentile) 40-yard dash. Campbell, unfortunately, looks like he may best be used as a gadget player (a la Tavon Austin or former teammate Curtis Samuel).
