Ouch. Frame this eli! Prove the doubters wrong
____ them scouts
Laughable. Eli's going to be a steal for somebody. No doubt.
Meh. He will put on a show tomorrow in the drills
Can't wait to see what his 40 time is
They weighed in and did bench press so far. Even though it's probably one of the more pointless combine drills, he put up a solid 15 reps. Real stuff starts tomorrow
Hud did 25 reps with the 225# Bench Press, BUT can't move like Eli, or catch, or be elusive, or etc.
That analysis is as much an indictment on how he was developed and coached the last 4 years as anything. That's indicative of our struggles the last few years. The failure to develop the offensive athletes we have...to improve their skills year over year. We essentially used his athletic ability to carry us, hurt his foot, and sent him to the combine not much better developed than we found him. I am pulling for him to overcome that, because he's a warrior.
I thought it was a pretty honest assessment regarding the interior running ability. But completely missed on several points as well.
With that busted foot he still outran his ____ poor coaching and god awful offensive line. Dude is a steal of a deal for anyone. I would love for Seattle to pick him and use him properly...but that's just putting him into another coaching & offensive line problem.
That dude gave his body for the team and kept plugging away. I wonder how they measure heart.
RBs about to start on NFL Network. Good luck Elijah!
Eli is #20 coming up in the 40yd dash on NFL Network.
Looked good and smooth. 4.52
About what I expected. We'll see how he does on his 2nd run. Hope he can go sub 4.5
