The 2012 NFL Combine wraps up today in Indianapolis, and we'll be looking at one player from six different positional groups of interest to the Buffalo Bills that stood out this past week. We'll start at quarterback, where the big story was undoubtedly the charismatic Robert Griffin III.

Everyone knew Griffin could play. This past year's Heisman Trophy winner completed 72.4 percent of his passes for 4,293 yards with 37 touchdowns and just six interceptions as a junior - and oh by the way, he also rushed for 699 yards and a further 10 touchdowns. Griffin's numbers (4,992 total yards and 47 touchdowns) compare favorably to last year's No. 1 overall pick, Cam Newton (4,327 total yards and 50 touchdowns), though Newton did it in a decisively better conference.

Still, Griffin reportedly killed it in interviews all weekend, and then he took to the track and ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash, a time that was bested by just six wide receivers and one running back. He likely still will not be the top overall pick - that'll be Andrew Luck - but with the St. Louis Rams looking to move down from the No. 2 overall spot, Griffin will be the hottest pre-draft commodity in recent memory.
