Ok, ok, let me rephrase that. Do we really need the workout portion of the combine? I understand where teams need to interview players and do physicals, but why do we need to know how fast a player runs or how many bench reps they can do. If a player look good on film can that be enough? So what if Player X runs a 4.3 40 and Player Y runs a 4.62. If Player X fumbles every 20 carries, runs like a scared duck, and doesn't have the mental capabilities, why take a chance on him if Player Y runs hard every down, and in interviews like a champ. The numbers seem to be irrelevant, and when it comes down to it, they don't always, or automatically mean production. Half of the threads on here seem to be about how one guy puts up better numbers than another. Why not just look at their film, talk to them, and check out their medical history. Maybe it's just late, but that's how I'm feeling right now.
No announcement yet.
Do we realllllly need the combine?
