The 2020 Combine: One Stop Shopping...

Recommended Posts

 

Since many here apparently do NOT read the front page of the website on a daily basis,  I thought I'd like up a couple of stories about what to expect at the Combine which starts tomorrow....      First up, a Day by Day summary of what to look for....

 

https://www.colts.com/news/nfl-scouting-combine-2020-colts-preview-draft

 

 

Next Up, a Positional breakdown of players currently on our roster,  and players that CB has acquired in any form...   draft, free agent,  etc.

It covers all possible aspects and gives you an idea of the type of player Ballard and his scouts are looking for.   Height, Weight, Speed,  Strength,  Length,  Jumping,  etc, etc.

Remember,  beyond physical testing,  the Combine is important because of things that we likely won't hear about.   Job interviews,  medical testing,  psycological testing.     Some of these things may leak out over time,   but we likely won't learn about them in real time.    And many of these things involve aspects that Ballard and company care about.    Namely Character.     Annually, we likely have the smallest Big Board of players we are willing to draft.   Many talented kids we bypass because of other flaws and red flags in their profile that we may never know about.

 

These two stories are on the front page of the website.    I did not see them discussed anywhere.    If I'm wrong,  (and I may be)  then my apologies...

No, not that I’m aware of.  
 

All teams guard that kind of info with a life and death type of approach.   Like government state secrets.   If they showed you, they’d have to kill you.   You get the idea.....
