Will Scouting Combine Be Crucial to 2013 NFL Draft?
With so many juniors declaring and so little consensus about the top 20, this year's combine could see major movement up and down draft boards.
GM's and scouts don't do a whole lot of work on juniors till they declare and will now focus on that group. The Senior Bowl will pretty well end the scouting of seniors except for those who skip it and now the whole focus will shift to the junior class where prospects can make huge inroads up and down boards.
Which juniors do you think will surprise scouts and GM's. The ones I find extremely interesting are:
Tyler Bray QB, Tennessee - He has a pro arm but college career was up and down.
Knile Davis, RB, Arkansas - got lost in that mess at Arkansas
Robert Woods, WR, USC - Played on one foot this past year, could really explode at the Combine.
Marquess Wilson WR, Washington St. - character issues make the Combine imperative for him.
William Gholston DE, Michigan St. - This guy could really scoot up draft boards with an excellent Combine.
Believe me, there are a lot of other juniors who will get a real shot to make an impression at the combine and threaten to be 1st rounders.
And proud of it!!!
