Losers from the 2014 NFL Combine

The first major step of the NFL draft process is complete. Here's who "lost" at this year's NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

1. Will Sutton: With fellow big guys tearing it up, Sutton disappointed with a 5.36 40-yard dash. In his defense, he's 303 pounds. But that might be the problem. 

2. Cyrus Kouandjio: "Sluggish, slow and totally unprepared," according to DraftInsider.net's Tony Pauline. He's having knee problems, which could cost him a chance to be drafted on the first two days. 

3. Ka'Deem Carey: An ugly 4.70 40-yard dash and he struggled in pass-catching drills. That's trouble for a prospect who plays a position that is losing value each year. 

4. Dee Ford: While his rival, Jadeveon Clowney, tore it up, he was a medical scratch due to back issues. 

5. Allen Robinson: With guys like Brandin Cooks, Odell Beckham and Mike Evans performing well, he struggled with a 4.60 40. 

6. Michael Sam: As good as he was with the media, Sam struggled on the field. His 4.91 40-yard dash was slower than expected, his 17 reps at bench press was tied for the second-worst mark at that position, and he was tied for 39th with a 25.5-inch vertical jump.

7. Antonio Richardson: Not only was his workout disappointing, but now there are concerns from a medical standpoint that have some thinking he may have to "redshirt" as a rookie. 

8. Tajh Boyd: The Clemson quarterback's stock has been dropping like a rock, and a 4.84 40-yard dash won't help. 

9. Jarvis Landry: He was the Combine's slowest receiver by quite a wide margin while also struggling with his jumps. 

10. Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Only 20 reps on his bench press, and then he was pulled before he had a chance to participate in on-field drills due to medical red flags.
