Re: Should the Senior Bowl or the Combine Workouts Matter?

Here's a snippet from this week's ESPN Insider magazine.

Golic: "[Talking about the Combine] My dad used to say, 'The day you can bring a bench press out on the 50-yard line is when you start worrying about it.'"
Greeny:They should cancel the combine and just watch game tape. To ignore the actual playing of football in the draft evaluation process is like choosing a restaurant based on the font on their menu.

i don't know who in their right mind would ignore the "actual playing of football" and replace it solely with a combine workout instead...


the one thing it does do is get everyone talking and trotting out highlight and lowlight reels on prospects, a well as starting the process of swapping opinions, raising red flags, and generating evalutions.

Well the combines definately showed that Maurice Clarett didn't belong in the NFL.

Too bad the Broncos didn't realize that.
