We're about halfway through the NFL Scouting Combine, and the day has finally come for the skill drills. Players will participate in a variety of conditioning obstacles that are designed to demonstrate speed, agility, strength, and overall athleticism. The crowd favorite of the event is the 40-yard dash, which showcases an individual's ability to accelerate at a rapid pace and maintain it.
