One day of doing field drills with no Pads on while wearing underwear in NO WAY evaluates players correctly. It's always been absurd and about making money for the NFL! Nor should it ever ever change your opinion of a player if you as a Scout/FO seriously watched their game tape from the previous 3-4 years worth of games. That's how NFL Franchises get sucked into taking the workout warriors like Mike Mamula and Tony Mandarich!
You want REAL Data on players, do every single one of those same drills, in full pads and uniforms!!!! Then I might actually take it seriously. This isn't Flag Football so dress accordingly.
So for years and years before it was televised or even mattered it was a money making scheme for the NFL?
No one is using the combine as an end-all be-all. It's a tool, part of a process.
yeah the combine only started to get air play because the nfl had a tv network that needed to fill dead air in the offseason. They dont try to make money off it. _________________
