Heading into the 2010 NFL Combine, Joe Haden was regarded as the top cornerback prospect. An All-American at the University of Florida, he was expected to post excellent numbers at the world's biggest workout. Haden ran a 4.52 40-Yard Dash (subpar for a cornerback of his size), and his 35-inch Vertical Jump was similarly underwhelming. His 4.34 20-Yard Shuttle was the second-slowest among cornerbacks, making Haden's overall Combine performance a colossal disappointment. But he improved on those results at his Pro Day and ended up being selected with the 7th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. Two Pro Bowl appearances later, it's safe to say Haden overcame his poor Combine performance.
