2012 NFL Combine: Records That Could Fall In Indianapolis This Weekend

The 2012 NFL Scouting Combine starts tomorrow in Indianapolis, and it will give the best players in the Draft a chance to improve or at the very least solidify their draft position.

The 40-yard dash is the premier event, and could make or break some prospects in terms of where they could be drafted. It doesn't mean much for a prospect in terms of his success in the NFL , but occasionally you'll get a guy like Chris Johnson who translates his speed to the field and finds success there. Here are some other records that could fall this weekend in Indy, via Top End Sports and SB Nation.
