2008 NFL Draft Stock Watch: Combine Consensus

Similar to what I did after the Senior Bowl, here's a consensus from around the Web of those prospects who most helped or hurt their draft stock at the NFL Combine. There are eleven sources here for offensive players and ten sources for defensive players (the sources are listed below the two lists of players). I hope to add my own thoughts to these "results" this weekend. But for now, if you're interested, you can glance below and easily see the consensus top five players who helped or hurt their draft stock this past week.
