One of the more intriguing NFL Scouting Combine tests that takes place each winter is the 3-cone drill. It's supposed to help scouts determine a player's ability to alter directions at the highest speed possible. And apparently 2011 was the "Year of the 3-Cone Drill" as 6 of the very best 15 times came from that year's event in Indianapolis.
