AP: Combine answers could impact draft stock

Posted Feb 21, 2013


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - For some players, the most important part of this week's NFL combine won't come on the field.

The list of those facing tough questions this year include Marcus Lattimore, who is trying to return from a gruesome knee injury; Tyrann Mathieu and Da'Rick Rogers, who failed drug tests in college; and Manti Te'o, the victim of an online hoax that drew international attention.
