As has been the case in recent weeks, SB Nation's latest 2013 NFL mock draft projects the Detroit Lions to take BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah with the fifth overall pick. Most mock drafts don't have Ansah going this high, but I'm thinking the 2013 NFL Combine may change that.

NFL teams certainly don't base their entire evaluation process on the combine, but it is part of the puzzle. For some players, a strong combine can help elevate their stock, whereas a rough combine can drop the stock of other players. Take Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore, for example. He ran a 4.95 40-yard dash and only had 12 reps in the bench press. Those numbers stand out, but not in a good way.
