(1090 The Fan) – Wednesday, February 20 marks the beginning of the NFL Combine — a day when fans begin to salivate over college players who may be able to push “their team” into the “Super Bowl contender” bracket.
Three-hundred athletes get to strut their stuff in front of NFL scouts and team officials, hoping to attract the attention of a pro team.
Todd Pheifer of the Bleacher Report lists ten players the Seattle Seahawks may want to watch a little more closely than the rest. Here are a few highlights:
Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri
Scouting Report: “Disruptive defensive lineman“
John Jenkins, DT, Georgia
Scouting Report: “Effective in collapsing the pocket, quality run-stuffer“
Keenan Allen, WR, California
Scouting Report: “Big enough body to be a ‘playmaker’ in the NFL …. has all the skills to be a quality, polished receiver“
