The 2016 Combine is here.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The annual NFL Combine has arrived for the 2016 season. All teams will train their eyes on Indianapolis in hopes of finding the perfect players for their draft plans. The Cowboys will of course be on hand to observe the over 300 participants who will hope to raise their stock for the draft in April. In addition, teams and agents tend to talk to each other during this time, so current free agents could be discussed and rumors generally leak out.
