The NFL Combine is always more fun when speedy wide receivers steal the show, and in 2020, there were several who performed above expectations and helped their draft stock.

Before we get into who did well on Thursday night, it’s important to identify what the target numbers for wide receiver prospects are:

40-yard dash: 4.50
Vertical jump: 36 inches
Broad jump: 10 feet
3-cone: 7.00
Short shuttle: 4.10
Bench press: 12 reps (225 pounds)

Remember: wide receivers who test and jump within the above-ranges are simply proving to talent evaluators that they check the minimum boxes for an NFL player.

With that in mind, here are six wideouts who upped their stock in Indianapolis.
