By Bret Stuter
LA Rams fans await the 2020 NFL Draft. That means the 2020 NFL Combine is near. Here’s a good NFL Combine Primer to help you track all the events
LA Rams fans are eager to see who the team picks in the 2020 NFL Draft. But before we get there, up to 355 NFL prospects will be attending the NFL Combine.
The 2020 NFL Combine is the first true event of the year which builds optimism, excitement, and hoopla for the upcoming NFL Draft. But what is the NFL combine exactly? Well, it’s a method of mass processing of hundreds of NFL hopeful college prospects to ensure all 32 teams have objective measurables, equal access, and an opportunity for executives to meet with and interview candidates who they are most interested in selecting in the upcoming draft.
The event begins a football players entry into the NFL data analytics data base. By that, I mean the player is formally and officially measured for height, weight, and a host of tests for strength, agility, speed, endurance, personality, football IQ, instincts, and more.
While many tout the “make or break dreams” angle of the young men who hope to one day play in the NFL, the NFL Combine is essentially the last stop for college players whose real work was done in games and analyzed by scouts and pundits each year, each game, each play.
