NBA Combine Athletic Results

Draft Express released the results of the athletic tests, and there were some interesting results. The full results are here:

What I found to be pretty interesting were Harrison Barnes' height and time in the standing vertical jump and the 3/4 sprint. Barnes had the fastest 3/4 sprint time with 3.16, which was .02 faster than MKG (interestingly, Thomas Robinson was third with a 3.17). Also, Barnes had the highest standing vertical, with a ridiculous 38" vertical. No one else was even close--the next best was 34". Kidd-Gilchrist didn't register in the top 5 of either the standing vertical or maximum vertical.

Obviously athletic prowess doesn't necessarily lend itself to NBA talent or success (I'm looking at you Gerald Green), but Barnes' results certainly impressed me, especially because I was expecting MKG to be up there with him, in terms of athleticism. What I want to know is if Harrison Barnes' combine results changes his draft stock in anyone's mind. I think that after reading this, I would definitely be a little more open to drafting him.
