Former Texas QB Colt McCoy needs a solid pro-day workout to keep his draft stock high.

Below are some of the Combine’s winners and losers, as reported by War Room’s Russ Lande, and links to find more positional statistics:

Offense

Quarterbacks: Even without throwing, Colt McCoy’s draft status fell when he measured in at 6-1 1/8. Considering his lack of height, his stock will take a big tumble down draft boards unless he lights up his on-campus workout March 31. More in the War Room

Running backs: For a player viewed in the same light as Jets starter Shonn Greene prior to the Combine, Montario Hardesty definitely moved up draft boards, and now likely will be selected in the second round. More in the War Room

Fullbacks: Of the fullbacks ranked in the War Room, Matt Clapp out of Oklahoma came in with the fastest 40-yard dash. More in the War Room

Offensive Tackles: After his dominating workout at the Combine, Bruce Campbell (Maryland) proved he is a rare athlete and has assured himself of being a first-round pick. More in the War Room

Offensive Guards: After running poorly (high 5.7-second range) and failing to distinguish himself in other Combine drills, Iowa’s Dace Richardson he will not get drafted. More in the War Room

Centers: Of the 14 centers evaluated by The War Room, there are four whose complete Combine statistics are available. Check them out here. More in the War Room

Wide Receivers: Carlton Mitchell (South Florida) is unlikely to be drafted in the first round, but if he catches the ball well at his on-campus workout March 30 he should move into the second round. More in the War Room

Tight ends: Miami’s Jimmy Graham is tall and well built and has been receiving a lot of hype in postseason because of his background and limited football experience. He could move into the third round or even late second. More in the War Room

Defense

Defensive Ends: Georgia Tech’s Derrick Morgan and South Florida’s Jason Pierre-Paul likely will battle it out to be the first defensive end drafted April 22, perhaps both in the top 10. More in the War Room

Joe Haden's 40-yard dash was less than most scouts expected.
Joe Haden’s 40-yard dash was less than most scouts expected.

Defensive Tackles: After Arizona’s Earl Mitchell ran an excellent 40-yard dash (in the low 4.8-second range) and showed good athleticism in all the drills, there are no doubts he has NFL size, strength and athleticism and could go as high as the third round. More in the War Room

Outside Linebackers: Sergio Kindle (Texas) can play anywhere, be it outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme or end in a 4-3 system. His Combine performance should lock up a top-15 pick. More in the War Room

Inside Linebackers: At the Combine, Missouri’s Sean Weatherspoon displayed the athleticism NFL coaches covet and has personnel men convinced he can be productive in a 4-3 scheme (middle or weakside linebacker) or in a 3-4 (inside linebacker). He should be a late-first- or early-second-round pick. More in the War Room

Cornerbacks: Florida’s Joe Haden was the nearly unanimous No. 1 cornerback heading into the Combine, but some surely will question that after his 4.57-second 40-yard dash. General managers drafting in the top 10 might be scared off by his poor performance. More in the War Room

Safeties: Tennessee’s Eric Berry already was a top prospect on most every team’s draft board, but his display of elite athleticism, body control and coordination likely pushed him into the top five of the draft. More in the War Room
