Wide Receiving a Rose to the NFL Combine

The NFL combine has become its own entity over the past decade, and yesterday the NFL announced who they have invited to attend this year’s event. Just getting an invite to workout in shorts, interview with teams and supply healthy urine is relevant in itself for future draft stock and fantasy potential. Through Josh Norris of NBC, I found out that the invites stem from National Scouting and BLESTO, scouting departments paired with NFL affiliations to 27 of the 32 teams in the league. Essentially, these organizations whittle down thousands of players to a pool of prospects they deem have the best potential to provide a team something tangible in moving their organization forward. It’s kind of like making it past auditions and into the house on the Bachelor, only there are multiple suitors here.
