That could be because most CFL fans may not be too familiar with the athletes unless they follow CIS football closely.

@ar: For me, a big CFL fan, it is more exciting to watch them play football than run around. I am not a big fan of combines in general, I just don't think they really affect decisions that much. Go to CIS games, that's were you'll really see the future talent of the CFL.
