The combine workouts is mainly geared for the scouts to confirm or intrigue their thoughts on players based on what they have seen in game film. The workouts are just a way they can measure "football attributes" to distinguish one player from the next to help the scouting/drafting process. The interviews is what the combine is really about. Most coaches and scouts are just going through their boards and doing their due diligence to find out as much as possible so they can arrange their boards accordingly.
