Draft combine measurements: Who are the 2023 prospects most comparable to?

Though the combine measurements are not the be-all and end-all, they undeniably provide a significant amount of new data which can be factored in when making decisions on draft night.

We have the draft combine results for all the players who have undergone testing since 2000, so with all that wealth of data we are able to see how the 2023 draft prospects stack up compared to their predecessors.

Our very own Alberto de Roa has crafted a tool designed to identify past players who bear the most resemblance to the 2023 prospects, using their draft measurement results as a basis for comparison.
