Stars of the Future 🤩

Daniels is also not expected to throw which makes a little less sense to me…

It’s late February which means the latest NFL news involves players opting out of the combine. By opting out, I mean Caleb Williams, Jayden Daniels, and Marvin Harrison are among the players who will not be participating in certain events.

Williams will not be throwing at the NFL Combine but should you care? Probably not.

Selfishly, I would love to see Williams throw because I will be in Indy covering the event. But if you were near the lock to get the bag with the No. 1 pick, why would you risk it to impress a couple of Twitter trolls?

 

To Throw or Not to Throw at the NFL Combine, That Is the Question

Daniels is also not expected to throw which makes a little less sense to me. Even if Daniels completely wet the bed (I mean this figuratively), there is little chance the Heisman Trophy winner would drop down draft boards. The race is already close between Daniels and Drake Maye for the No. 2 pick.

Why not allow yourself to win over decision-makers in Indianapolis? That said, I also don’t think it hurts Daniels to skip the throwing session.

Williams should be the No. 1 pick and that would be the case even if the quarterback skipped out on attending the NFL Combine completely. It is times like these we should ask ourselves why throwing against air in shorts and a tank top should be considered more important than years of actual college football.

 

Should We Even Care About the NFL Combine?

It is understandable why NFL general managers and coaches want to see a quarterback throw before they make a million-dollar investment. Let’s not act like these drills are anything close to a real football game.

It’s February and we need something to talk about. For the next week, you are going to hear about how important the NFL Combine is for prospects.

Then you are going to google the NFL Combine stats and realize that most of the people at the top of these lists had careers shorter than Kevin Hart. This is coming from someone who is paying money to cover the NFL Combine.

I am going on a budget airline where I will carry chickens and goats for cheaper airfare. Then pause for a brief layover. Help unload all the wild animals on the plane then get on another plane to finally get into Indy for a week of watching dudes in spandex.

The NFL Combine is important within the proper context. It’s part of the story for each player, but it’s not THE story.

Plenty of people are going to fake outrage over Williams and other passing-on drills. Don’t fall for their efforts to stop you from doom-scrolling.

The countdown to actual NFL games is officially on.
