Top NFL Combine Testing Results

These are the top 10 results for each of the NFL Combine fitness tests, for combines from 1999 up to and including 2015. Lists of the top 10 performers from 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 are also available, and the best for each year and best ever is listed on the Best Combine Results table. For a description of each of these tests, see the page about the NFL Combine.

The NFL do not keep official records for combine results, so these are unofficial, and are not all verified. These lists are based on results only starting from 1999. The data was initially based on a results table from 1999 up to 2007 as was published on NFLDraftScout.com, and has since been updated each year. There are results from prior to 1999 that would also make these lists, but as not we do not have complete datasets from this period they have not been included.
