Too funny, Taj Boyd, formerly of Clemson, and now doing the NFL combine said “ I thought we were here to compete” when Teddy Bridgewater declined to participate in most of the drills.
Hmm, why should the most polished quarterback in the draft and a likely top ten pick “compete” with a likely career backup? I don’t get it. Oh, yes I do: Boyd thinks by showcasing his athletic ability, he might climb up in the draft. Either you can play or not play, and Bridgewater can play.
Perhaps Boyd should have thought that before his Tigers got drilled by 37 by Florida State. That’s a better evaluation point than a set of drills.
Of interest, wide receivers in the draft. Over the last five years, of 15 players, only one receiver running a sub-4.40 had a 1,000 yard season (Mike Wallace). In fact, only three of those sub-4.40 WR’s even had 1,000 career receiving yards. Measurables can lie … Or tell the truth in a different way.
