Pro Days are an event that every player looks forward too. It is their last time to perform their 40 yard dash, and get their name out there to NFL teams.
Well we are learning some very disturbing news. Several pro days have been turning kids away from participating.
We have heard from three different players from three different schools who held their pro day already, who have turned kids away after their forty yard dash.
Today Jackson Stae University, the prestigous black college turned their players away after they did not perform a fast enough forty.
The weather was 28 degrees and after all the players ran their forty only one player was able to perform drills in front of the scouts. Get this, the player was not even from Jackson State.
@DraftDiamonds: The worse thing about it is the school holding the pro day had all their players dismissed while a kid from outside their school stayed?
It is very difficult to make it to the NFL, but if you are judged by your forty alone, several greats wouldn’t be in the NFL.
This is a real shocker, but the NFL is on a clock people. Their time is valuable, but what about the kids who worked four years for this day? It is a shame.
