The highlight of the NFL Combine every year isn't draft stocks rising and falling, and it sure isn't the pervasive nature of NFL teams inspecting every inch of the athletes on display. No, it's Rich Eisen's 40 yard dash dressed in full suit. 2013 marked the 9th year the NFL Network anchor has ran the 40 yard dash for entertainment purposes, which is amazing in and of itself because it seems like just yesterday Eisen was teaming with Stuart Scott on SportsCenter.
