Norris Attempts The Combine

Sunday, March 05, 2017


The lengths I go to entertain you.


Since I attempt to evaluate these prospects’ athleticism, my friends at NBC Sports thought it was only fair if I went through the same circuit of drills and tests as the future NFL players.


So what did I learn? I learned that I am no longer an in shape 18-year-old. I learned how important flexibility is for every single drill. I can’t even touch my toes, which does not help with the broad jump or turning the corner on a three cone. And I’m jealous of the rest these prospects get between their attempts.



I mention in the video that the bench press is the most pointless test at the Combine. I believe that, but we should not eliminate any event. The point of the NFL Combine is to compare this class against previous ones. Changing or eliminating events destroys that entire database. If anything, extra events should be added.
