Yesterday the defensive linemen took the main stage at the NFL Combine and put on quite the showing. Clowney, Hagemen, and Donald (just to name a few) showed us why they have such great potential. Today the DBs get a chance to shine.
How the DBs perform will have an impact on the Dallas Cowboys and how they chose to fill their need at FS. Will the Cowboys go for a top tier guy or will there be a diamond in the rough in the later rounds?
The NFL Combine is currently underway, and for a few lucky athletes ( http://www.nfl.com/combine/participants ) the dream is soon to be realized. Also known as the Underwear Olympics, the NFL Combine measures draft eligible college football players from all conceivable angles. Obviously height and weight, speed and quickness, jumping and agility are among those tangible skills being measured. But also intelligence, personality, and other psychological traits are measured.
Love it or hate it. This is big business.
Every year a workout warrior is discovered. Someone with blazing speed, or amazing strength, or something extraordinary to distinguish themselves at the Combine. That same person who otherwise disappears on game film. Right or wrong, we see them rocket up in value as a result. Who will be this year’s workout warrior? You’ll have to watch to see.
Watch the NFL Combine on NFL Network or online at http://www.nfl.com/combine/live. Coverage begins at 9:00 AM EST.
