NFL Combine discussion: Your best and worst drill

I don't think I'm as flexible as Denard Robinson is. - USA TODAY Sports

You could hang in at least one drill, right? Of course you could.

Exercise is much easier when someone else is doing it. Watching former Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore put up 12 bench press reps of 225 pounds and run a 4.87-second 40-yard dash, one can't help but think one could achieve either of those two numbers, especially if one were to be given a month or so to prepare for that and only that.

(Maybe you already can! If so, let us know below.)

And even though national television pressure and millions of dollars at stake and crowds of superior athletes and nagging injuries and Sean Payton watching you from inside your own brain would make most of us have a hard time walking in a straight line, let alone achieving aspirational physical feats, surely we could still do some of this stuff, right? Not all, but at least one thing?

For example, I have, like, negative upper-body strength. I have a hard time even working out my arms and shoulders hard enough to feel like I've worked them out. You're probably thinking of ways to advise me on fixing this, but I'm not worried about it, as I'm able to pick up pretty much any item in my house at least once each.

However, I can run pretty far, and if I haven't eaten like a moron for the past month, I can run pretty fast too. Though not as fast as back in college (WAAAAYYYYYYY back in college), when we had a hilly park out behind our apartment. According to stopwatches, I've cracked five seconds in a 40. The really cool part is that if I were to be timed right now, I can just remind you I claimed to be way faster like a decade ago. Guess you had to be there.

How about you? Which Combine drills do you naively think you could impress a scout or two at, and which would mostly involve laughing or shrugging or crying?
