How the 2021 “Combine” is going to work

NCAA Football: Buffalo at Penn State Matthew O’Haren-USA TODAY Sports

If you have not been following the news, the combine is going to be run slightly differently this year.

The NFL Scouting Combine’s altered format for this year, due to our old friend COVID-19, is going to me a journey around the traditional pro day circuit.

The goal is the same, NFL scouts are going to to see the top draft prospects perform on-field drills and learn their official measurements. But rather than everyone getting together in Indianapolis the teams can list up to three guys at their pro day that scouts can look at via video.

It’s an elegant, yet imperfect solution.

UB has selected for it’s three players

  • Jaret Patterson (duh)
  • Malcolm Koonce
  • Kayode Awosika

When it comes to the NFL draft I have the biggest set of blue and white tinted glassed you’ll ever seen. I’m super wrong each and every year, so take this with a large grain of salt.

All three of these guys will be in NFL camps and at least two will be drafted. This is maybe the most accomplished trio of Bulls to enter the draft ever. You could argue that in 2013 (Oliver / Mack / Johnson) the Bulls had a stronger trio, and only one got drafted but while we don’t have a Mack in this class, all three have solid measurable and enough performance history to impress scouts.

Also, unlike 2013 all three will be getting in front of the scouts because of this years format.

Buffalo is holding their pro day on March 18th along with these other schools.

  • Auburn
  • Central Arkansas
  • Louisiana Tech Louisiana-Monroe
  • Stanford
  • Troy
  • West Virginia
