Beat me to it.
That's an easy statement to make. "The combine on it's own are a waste", of course it is. So is almost any evaluation process you can present. The tape also lies a lot. Players look great on tape and everyone hypes them up, but then it's show time and thier garbage. The combine is not the end all or deserving of the hype it gets, but it is a great tool to gauge players. Mathematics always prevail, it's just a matter of who has the right formula. Players will move up and/or down for the right and wrong reasons based on teams formulas.
What we should look at is what the best teams do (patriots, etc). Draft more players = get more talent.
That's what people think it is...but really, it's draft more players and coach them the hell up. How many nobody players come out and become very good players for them. Malcolm Butler is a great example! Julian Edelman might be a better one! And we cut Legarette Blount!!!
When you can develop and coach up players and then put them in positions to succeed...THAT is how you 'get' great players!!!
