NFL Combine 2012: Chris Polk Needs Strong Showing At Combine

With the NFL combine merely days away now, our friends over at National Football Post have been taking a look at the talent headed into the event, taking notice of some players that need to have a great performance at the Combine to boost their draft stock. One such player, according to NFP, is Washington Huskies running back Chris Polk.

RB Chris Polk: Washington (5-11, 222)

He's a big kid with a good feel inside, runs hard and will break some tackles. However, pad level, initial burst and lack of great change of direction skills make me think he's more of a potential NFL starter only. Didn't have a great Senior Bowl in Mobile and it will be interesting to see just how explosive he is both as a short area athlete and straight-line guy at the NFL Combine. Needs a big week to get some positive momentum going his way.

Polk's agility will be on full display at the combine, and will likely be a focal point of most scouts in attendance. He's got to prove that he can put it all together in one package, and the best place to start is at the Combine.
