Not trying to be a downer but is someone telling these kids they'll get drafted. I don't think Camp or Curry do. Might get a shot as UDFAs......
Camp will absolutely come down to combine numbers (which he knows and we don't.)
I don’t think it’s combine numbers so much as the fact that they’ve graduated and are just ready to move on. At this point, they can give the NFL a shot and then move on if it doesn’t work out.
I think Camp has a good chance. The pros are going to look at physical attributes over college production. Curry always said he wanted to give it a shot and he should. Far lesser players than him declare every year and I would imagine his expectations are realistic.
I don't think it's just the NFL.
This is how I see it too. Heck Curry has played for six years now. Other than continuing the college football dream, there’s not much upside to delaying getting started with your vocational career.I don't think it's just the NFL.
If you have gotten your degree and another year might not make as much difference, start the process a year early in your life. That's one extra year to test the NFL waters, to try the coaching waters and also to look for a good job with your GT degree.
That's in general, it doesn't apply to every case, but I can see a player wanting to move on to get the process going for their next phase of their life.
Hill's short shuttle was not at all fast. That and an inability to concentrate at the level you would expect a GT alumnus to concentrate caused him to bust.Stephen Hill ran a 4.28 40 at the combine at 6-5 and 215lbs. That’s better than Calvin and Bebe.
If Jalen Camp runs a 4.28 and grows a few inches then this is apples to apples.
I think Camp has a huge upside for the NFL. His stats don't pop off the page because he only really played in 2018 and 2020. In 2018, he was still under CPJ so there weren't a ton of passes in general, and most went to the ABs or Stewart. Camp has a lot of raw talent and made some really nice catches this year.I wouldn't downplay the impact of the Combine for anyone not playing QB. Remember what happened to Dwyer. Calvin Johnson, for all his highlights, really rocketed into orbit when he ran a 4.39 in someone else's borrowed shoes and then promptly weighed in at 239'. It's also where the draft stock of elite players from smaller programs is evaluated.
Coach Lew will make them impress.
Hell CPJ and assistant Niumatalolo ran a passing spread option at Hawaii in '92 to win the WAC. Been nice if CPJ had re winded his scheme to take more advantage of the Waller and Smelter duo. Oh well...It still amazes me that both Waller and Smelter played on a CPJ team at the same time. Would have been nice to see what they could’ve done in a passing offense at GT.
I’d be surprised if Camp doesn’t make a roster. And not sure he doesn’t get a flyer draft pick. He is going to crush the combine metrics. His bench will probably be best amongst all WRs and rival some linemen.
Yeah, would have been nice to have tweaked the most efficient offense in modern history with a few more passes.Hell CPJ and assistant Niumatalolo ran a passing spread option at Hawaii in '92 to win the WAC. Been nice if CPJ had re winded his scheme to take more advantage of the Waller and Smelter duo. Oh well...
He tried to and failed. Those 1992 passing concepts aren’t too relevant these days.Hell CPJ and assistant Niumatalolo ran a passing spread option at Hawaii in '92 to win the WAC. Been nice if CPJ had re winded his scheme to take more advantage of the Waller and Smelter duo. Oh well...
