    So Fabs right now it's the combine.
    Basically a big 4 day training camp for all of the collegiate graduates who will make up this years draft class.

    It's not maaaaassively interesting but someone occasionally smashes a record or something and then all the draft hype kicks up about them. But mostly press hype trying to sell the draft.

    Sound.

    So it's basically just loads of lads doing drills, and sometimes someone pyar beasts one

    Like when Tiago ilori took sporting lisbons speed record from Ronaldo

    Ultimately means very little, but can be interesting if analysed correctly in context

    Was a Norwegian lad who set a combine record for bench press. He didnt have much of a career in the NFL, played 1 season for the Bills.
    That said 225 lb 45 times is fucking impressive.

    A part of this is also interviews - they're trying to see who has the right mind to succeed (competitive, loves the game, willing to work etc) and then it's all the medical tests (MRIs, etc etc) and then it's the running/jumping etc

    The NFL says that 3 years ago, Dez did catch the ball against the Packers.

    Uh oh... Browns said they are willing to trade away #1 pick.

    Browns fans must really really hate life. You have a unique opportunity to have #1 pick two years in a row. #4 pick.. So thats at least 4 years with pretty much creme de la creme talent.

    Tons and tons of cap room.

    And they still fuck it upm

    From what I can gather Combine is a bit like a medical for footballers. But with more exercise drills.

    Only snippet of note so far is that projected 1st round pick interior lineman Hurst diagnosed with heart condition. Which presumably will see his stock fall by a round or two.

    RB Barkley having a good combine.

    If I was Browns i'd take him first pick.. There are 3 QBs at least of equal stock on the board. Just take the one that the other two don't want at 4th pick. Done.

    Why are there so few black franchise quarterbacks?

    Rosen, Allen, Darnold. Every mock draft has them in a different order. Hence why I think the smart play for Browns would be to go Barkley pick 1.. There is every chance someone could pick him picks 2 or 3 and browns miss out on a franchise RB.

    Google Shaquem Griffin.

    Fastest LB in the combine in the last 15 years and needed to use a prostethic left arm for the bench press. He still knocked out 20 reps at 100kg.
