2013 NFL Draft: A look at the average NFL Combine number over a 5-yr period

New, comments

What do the numbers look like for speed, height, strength and more for each position at the combine?

USA TODAY Sports

Ever wonder how a player compares with his Combine or pro day numbers compare to others? Well, in a Todd McShay article about Manti Te'o he posts a chart that gives us all the info.

There are some interesting things to note. Safeties tend to be a little taller than cornerbacks. Defensive linemen tend to be stronger than offensive linemen. Receivers and corners are overall the fastest and quarterbacks average a hair under 6-3 in height, which is why Russell Wilson's stature was a concern and kept him from being a top 10 pick.

Take a look at tell us if there is anything you find interesting.
