But at times, they will play like each of the three.  The same characteristics making the position difficult to fill on the roster, are the very reasons why defenses struggle to defend the position.  The player is often too big to be defended by a defensive back, too strong to be defending by the faster/lighter edge and pass-coverage linebackers, and too fast and agile to be defending by defensive linemen.

So the right scoring out of the combine is to give a bit of the three roles a say in what makes a good fullback:

40-year dash 4.85 (similar to tight end)
10 yard split 1.70 (similar to tight end)
20 yard split 2.90 (between TE and OL)
bench press 23 (between TE and OL)
verticle jump 33 (between RB and TE)
broad jump 9-5 (between TE and OL)
short shuttle 4.35 (between TE and OL)
60-yard shuttle 11.8 (similar to tight end)
