NFL Combine Test Scores and History

With the NFL Combine rapidly approaching, many test times and scores will be stated as gospel by various people such as announcers, trainers and coaches.  For years I was unsure of actual numbers other than scores from the NFL Combine results sheets I was able to obtain.  When looking at those I (like everyone else) focused on the fastest, highest, most or the scores posted by those that had the greatest media profile.  What I became interested in was what was the average number an athlete could score in the tests.  So, I took the results sheets from several years and ran the numbers looking for averages.  Below is what I found.  True enough, these numbers are not from the last 3-4 years, but represent what an athlete can expect to score or shoot for on the big day.

Also remember, many athletes that score the fastest, highest, most in terms of numbers just cannot play the game at the level the NFL expects.  See how many big time names you see in the best scores of all time.

The NFL Combine was originally founded as a medical event.  With the advent of keeping athletes for long-term contracts, the franchises wanted each prospect to be given a full physical.  The top prospects were flown to as many as a dozen clubs for medical evaluations.  Imagine getting a full set of X-Rays by 6 – 12 different teams.  The franchises didn’t like the expense and the athletes did not like the health risk.  So, Gene “Duke” Babb founded the NFL Combine, which is run by National Football Scouting.  The first combine was held in 1982 in Tampa.  After moving to New Orleans, then Arizona, the National Invitational Camp was moved to its current home in Indianapolis in 1987.

The Dash

I’ve seen death stare me in my own eyes?  

The way many of you cannot know,

I’ve seen death take others

But still left me here below.


I’ve heard many screams and many cried

But death refused to hear.

And in my life I’ve seen faces

filled with many a tear.


After death has come and gone

the tombstone still left for many to see.

It’s no more than a symbol of a persons memory.


I’ve seen my share of tombstones

But never took the time to truly read.

The meaning what’s behind there for all the others to see.


Under the person’s name

it read the date of birth, dash

and the date the person passed.

The more I think about the tombstone

the only important thing is the dash.


Yes, I see the name of the person

but that I might forget

And I also read the date of birth and death

But even that might not stick.


But thinking about the individual

In fact, I can’t help it but to remember the dash.

Because it represents a person’s life

and that will always last.


So when you begin to chart your life

Make sure you’re on a positive path.

Because people may forget your birth and death

but will never forget your dash.

Welcome to Coach Robb Rogers.com

Welcome to CoachRobbRogers.com.

I began coaching in high school with elementary age mighty mite football players.  In college I was not athletic enough to play ball, so I coached summer swim team, high school football, YMCA soccer and began my strength and conditioning career in the fall of 1980 as a student coach at Missouri State University.  Since that time I have coached just about every population from emerging elementary athletes to All-Americans, seasoned All –Pros and Olympians in virtually every venue and sport in the performance industry.  From fitness and weight loss to performance with high school, college and professional teams, as well as private industry and into the tactical realm with fire/rescue, SWAT and military Special Forces personnel, my career has afforded me a unique, varied and rich professional experience.

The purpose of this venue is to serve you, the professional of the performance industry.  When starting a career, people tend to be on fire with passion and eager to show the world what they can do.  As people become seasoned with experience, they begin to understand it is about what the team can do.  After years in a field, the people that are still thriving begin to understand that it is time to help others achieve their goals. My goal is to provide my experience and expertise via the internet platform as a classroom for you, the performance professional.

Please join me for the journey as we continue to explore the nuances of performance training, a science that is applied as an art to a variety of students with a plethora of goals, experiences, needs and wants.
