With the start of the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine today in Indianapolis, Redskins fans can officially shift their focus to the long road to the NFL Draft.
The Scouting Combine was originally designed to provide teams with medical information on the players they might one day invest thousands of dollars in. Now, the Redskins will join the other 31 teams in attendance to mentally and physically poke and prod each of the 333 invitees in what has truly become the world’s most public job interview.
Wall-to-wall coverage of the Combine begins on the NFL Network Saturday morning at 9 a.m., and runs through next Wednesday evening. You can catch every 40-yard dash, 225-pound bench press, and three-cone drill in real time. You can watch as some NFL dreams take root, while others are stomped out.
Helping you and I understand the results and gauge the importance of the Combine is Redskins Director of Player Personnel Scott Campbell, who is now entering his 13th season with the Washington Redskins.
As was highlighted in yesterday’s post, Campbell and his staff deserve huge credit for the scouting work that went into last year’s landmark draft. However, there is much more to be said by the soft-spoken director of college scouting, as he prepares for one of the biggest days of his NFL calendar.
