Nothing that happens during the NFL Scouting Combine receives more attention than 40-yard dash times. That is especially true at the wide receiver position, where even a difference of less than .2 seconds could mean a difference of multiple rounds.

Should 40 times make such a big difference? How much stock should teams looking for receivers put into those times when they are stacking their boards for the 2014 NFL draft?
