The NFL Combine in a Nutshell

Or more accurately in a BOD POD.

So, the workouts wrapped up Wednesday and as an absolute non-fan of the NFL, I’m proud to bring DXP readers my riveting report from the 2008 NFL Scouting Combine:

“Some black guys ran really fast and competed in feats of strength. In a few months some rich, white guys will purchase the strongest and fastest of those black guys and put them to work. “

America certainly has come a long way in the last 200 years.


You know what’s even more offensive? Check out how the NFL officially describes the combine.

The 2008 Scouting Combine is the annual job fair for prospective new NFL players.

Really, NFL? Job Fair?

Apparently Rich Eisen was the only one that got the memo and dressed appropriately for the occasion.

Edit: Oops, in my rush to make a socio-political statement, I forgot to note that for a real combine breakdown, head to Husker Guy.
