2022 NFL Combine Result Averages (By Position)


2022 NFL Combine Averages By Position

The 2022 NFL Combine just wrapped up and the stat nerd in me started going through all of the testing numbers.

I went through and averaged out all the numbers, by position (I also added the top performer of each drill at every position.) This is something I always liked to do to share with players so they could see how they stacked up and potential areas of improvement they needed to work on.

This time I’m sharing the results here. Enjoy.

Extra Notes

60 yard shuttle results are not included because hardly anyone runs it and I’ve never met anyone who cared about 60 yard shuttle times.

Speaking of not running, no one seems to be running the short shuttle or 3 cone drill anymore and quite a bit of guys not jumping or benching either. Not sure if this year stood out as much as it seems or if it’s more of just a continuation of a growing trend.

Either way, more ‘DNP’ than I’ve ever noticed before.

Five of the highest rated Tight Ends did not run at the combine:

  • Trey McBride (Colorado State)
  • Jalen Wydermyer (Texas A&M)
  • Isaiah Likely (Coastal Carolina)
  • Charlie Kolar (Iowa State)
  • Jeremy Ruckert (Ohio State)

Finally, I found it interesting that all the skill positions – WR, CB & SAF – all averaged exactly 4.45.
