DeMaurice Smith: Ban the team that asked the Derrius Guice question from the Combine
NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith has a simple solution to the problem of teams asking players inappropriate questions at the Scouting Combine: Keep the teams that do it from participating.
Smith said on PFT Live that he thinks the team that asked running back Derrius Guice if he likes men should not be permitted to participate in the Scouting Combine going forward.
The Giants reportedly held a private workout for UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen at his campus on Tuesday, taking advantage of a 2-for-1 opportunity while across the country for USC’s Pro Day .
Denver Broncos eneral manager John Elway won’t be forced to select a quarterback with the fifth overall pick after the signing of Case Keenum in free agency and with Paxton Lynch, a 2016 first-round pick, still on the roster. However, the opportunity to select the most physically gifted quarterback prospect, whom the team already knows after coaching him at the Senior Bowl, will be too tempting.
Elway may see a little of himself in Josh Allen. He’s big, athletic, strong-armed and in need of long-term development. Allen won’t be thrust into the starting lineup, though. The Broncos coaching staff can slow-play his progression.
With the proper development, Allen could be the best quarterback in this class. But it will take time. Wyoming offensive coordinator Brent Vigen acknowledged his former protege is an unfinished product.
Watkins responded by writing you never know brother this business is crazy and Mixon followed up to say that the city is waiting on you.
Watkins had 39 catches for 593 yards and eight touchdowns after joining the Rams in an August trade with the Bills. They’re reportedly interested in re-signing him, but could get some competition from Cincinnati if the Bengals share their running back’s desire to see Watkins in orange and black next season.
On the heels of a disappointing 2017 season, Bryant plans to train with personal wide receivers coach David Robinson next month, NFL Network’s Jane Slater recently reported.
The regimen is the wideout’s equivalent to the offseason tweaks and tune-ups that quarterbacks undergo with noted passing gurus such as Tom House, Adam Dedeaux, George Whitfield and Jordan Palmer. Among the players benefitting from Robinson’s tutelage to date: Antonio Brown , Emmanuel Sanders , Jordan Reed and Cowboys teammate Brice Butler .
Asked for details on the upcoming workouts, Robinson told Slater that he would concentrate on expansion of Bryant’s route tree, shaking defenders at the line of scrimmage and improving footwork technique to compensate for natural loss of speed due to the aging process.
