This is where we get to see them pedal and run, showing off their hip fluidity and testing their change of direction in the 3 cone drill.
"There are a lot of great running backs here, and it's not my decision". Some people say I lack speed, lack a burst.
Here's a list of running back combine participants, their weight, and the average 40-yard dash time a running back has run since the 2005 combine given that specific weight. Smith-Schuster caught 70 passes for over 900 yards for the Trojans in 2016, including one of his best games on the national level coming in the Rose Bowl against Penn State.

"It's all on how I perform and how it gets me to jump the draft board", Cook said.
After speed work, we typically shift to position work, perfecting the routes I'll be running at the Combine, and then we move on to lifting. I don't see as much separation when his feet are on the ground and he's just trying to outrun the guy in front of him.
-Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey said he always plays with a chip on his shoulder.
We'll continue to update this as the combine moves forward.
