Default Re: The 40 Yd Dash vs. On-Field Play

you'd think by now NFL GM's would stop falling for combine stats. how many work out warrior busts do you need to see before you stop falling for them ?

you'd also think that by now they would have tailored the combine drills to more resemble what they need to see from football players instead of track athletes.

do the drills in full equipment on the most commonly found football surface. do drills that emulate what they'll be doing during football play. have receivers run timed routes that show changing direction speed instead of straight lines. have running backs run with a ball in their hands with obstacles that simulate defenders. have the linemen do timed drills pushing sleds . etc,etc
