The 2014 NFL Combine is over. There were few surprises. No matter how much they tried the story remained about football players. 

We suspected that Texas A&M stud Johnny Manziel may have stretched the truth about his height. But did we know that the University of Louisville's ball handler, Teddy Bridgewater, was passing with small hands?

We suspected that South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney was an athletic marvel. But who knew that Auburn's Dee Ford was such a wordsmith? Having declared himself better than Clowney, who he proclaimed played like "a blind dog in a meat market." Ford did not participate in the Combine being scratched by the medical staff.

For the football players the Combine is about elevating your draft status. Some did, others did not. 

The NFL Combine is about athleticism. It will make a difference in the draft stock of some players. There are always winners and losers. Here are five of the winners and losers coming out of the NFL Combine.

Dee Ford was served a heaping serving of humble pie a day after mouthing off. I heard so many rave reviews of Clowney's performance based primarily on his 40 time but everyone knew he was going to do well. But dropping 11 lbs to do it doesn't make it all that impressive. I really like that LB from Buffalo though.

To Ford's credit when interviewed at the Combine he did not back down from the remarks. And I think because he was sat down by the medical crew it wasn't as bad as if he sat himself out.
And what about the defensive tackle from Pittsburgh, Donald? Come on!
