How much weight does each of these have on the draft rankings? Does the combine have more of an impact?

So after the combine....is that the final deciding factor........is that result what dictates where a player will rank on the board until draft day?

Definitely a "step up to the plate" kind of factor to the Combine. I'm sure pro days are a lot more comfortable. Combine probably tests their mettle a little more.

I would say the most important evaluation is when a team brings a guy in for a personal workout. Of course, the whole picture is what this is all about.

The way I see it:

Combine and Pro Day = Job Fair
Team Workout = Interview

Right but the team workout is how a team will rank the player..........the other two are how the scouts/media/analysts rank them, and it also dictates where they fall on the board come the big day.
