I’m no fan of the NFL Scouting Combine. In fact, the combine and college football’s National Signing Day are the least appealing football events in existence, but the Pro Bowl is gaining quickly.
While I understand the need for the combine, I don’t put much stock in it when it comes to assessing a player’s potential to succeed in the NFL. Stopwatches and barbells can only tell you so much about how a player’s skills will translate to the professional level.
Two BYU products participated in the 2012 combine, neither of which participated in each of the seven drills.
