  • NFL Combine 2020

    Quarterbacks hit the scale today. I was suprised by how big both Jordan Love and Tua T are.

    Tua is an even 6’0” with 10” hands. That changes my perspective.
    Love is 6’3.5”, for what it’s worth.

      Here's the high level, tentative schedule:

      » Thursday, Feb 27: TE, QB, WO
      » Friday, Feb 28: PK, ST, OL, RB
      » Saturday, Feb 29: DL, LB
      » Sunday, Mar 1: DB

      The word is that Joe Burrow will not throw, and Chase Young will not take part in the drills. Then again, the consensus #1 and #2 selections are pretty confident about what they bring, and are coveted resources.

      So here we go again....whose stock will rise and whose will fall? My gut tells me (that I have heartburn and....) QBs will become more loved as we go further into the process, and FA will be the X factor to some degree. A team like The Chargers needs a vet, but they might also need a 1st rounder. This position is almost always the one that gets the attention, and I will not be surprised if this year is the same.

      I also feel like one or two of the WRs will separate themselves from the group, and will also be highly coveted, given they will stand out in an outstanding class!

      I see Oliners moving up and down a little, and who we think is top 10 today might be replaced by draft time. Heck, this could goes all the way down round one and further.

      I also expect some of the defensive top tier stud athletes in their position will gain prominence, and become daily conversation pieces at some point.

      Anyhow....always a great time on the NFL offseason!!

        Will it be a legitimate rising of stock, or fan hype and media talk ? Last year with predictions of up to 6 or even 7 guys being drafted in the first round at the quarterback position, that story line fell flat and it didn't happen as it was a weak class of guys despite media talk. So even in a desperate league last year, guys for the most part fell where their tape put them. I think this year though, stock will be legitimate and on the rise throughout the process as the group on offer this year is much better. I am hoping to see as many quarterbacks as possible slide into that top 14 picks to push a few more guys our way, and with the group coming out, it is a real possibility.

          That goes quite a ways to answer questions about his stature.

            I think I’ll use this draft class to test my hypothesis on QBs with longer wingspans and how it relates to success or lack thereof.

              Indeed. Please report back in 3-5 years after you’ve gathered said data.

                I think media and hype add to the flavour, but I would attribute a lot of rise and fall with the following:
                1) A player either knocks it out of the park (think Julio Jones) or comes up short during the combine. These ups and downs can significantly impact the end results.
                2) A player is found guilty of some act/comment that provides reason for concern (think Tunsil), even if it is overblown to some degree. This is especially true of first rounders, and the higher the potential selection the more relevant it can become, given the draft capital involved.
                3) During the selection process, players can endear themselves a bit more due to their character/personality, but really hurt themselves if they come across badly with multiple teams.
                4) Teams get enamoured with certain positions, especially QB, which can often over-value the players involved.
                5) Certain types of injury can make teams back off for one or more rounds.

                There are other reasons of course, but these ones stick out for me.

                            the hands are a big win for Tua for sure. having big hands is important generally in the nfl.

                              I expected him to be 5’10. He’s every bit as big as Russel Wilson.
