It's that time of the year of again.
The NFL Combine contract runs through 2020 with one-year options each year after that. Sometimes it can come in useful, of course, but if history tells us anything, it's to not place too much faith in the Combine's Workout Warriors.
I'm also very interested to see how prospects weigh in at the combine, what their wingspan is, how big their hands are, etc. It's also a great time to see some potential dark horse candidates as draft candidates.
Chicago is expected to target a quarterback early in the 2017 draft, but whether any of the top prospects are worthy of the third pick is up for debate. Fans can watch as prospects go through a variety of events.
Fournette on Wednesday came in at 240 pounds for his official weigh-in at the 2017 NFL Combine, five pounds greater than he was listed at LSU.
Let's take a look at this year's crop of FCS players and which ones the 49ers should be monitoring at the combine. "He's a player that nationally might not be a well-known name, but these (NFL) teams definitely know his name".
Some NFL experts believe the experience level, or lack thereof, possessed by Trubisky might hurt his NFL Draft stock, with Dennis Dodd of CBSSports.com stating this of the quarterback before the NFL Combine, calling him a "mystery" due to just 13 career starts. A lot of these mocks from major media sources will factor in the interviews as well.
With the running backs, offensive linemen and special teams players on the field Friday, the next day on Saturday brings the quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends. Reddick is now a first round rated prospect but is very much a tweener between an off ball LB role and EDGE role. He fits the recent mold of Steelers OLBs. They like the athletic, fluid guys who can drop into coverage, even if they are a bit raw.
