More than 330 of college football’s finest players Antworten

Indianapolis this week for the NFL’s annual combine Phil Haynes Jersey , where they’ll be poked and prodded, timed and tested, quizzed and questioned.Not all the players who will get drafted in April are on the invite list.The combine simply can’t accommodate all worthy candidates, and some prospects will work their way into teams’ draft plans via their impressive pro day performances or private team workouts in the coming weeks.Emblematic of the inexact science of projecting which players will succeed in the pros is this: Super Bowl 53 featured 30 undrafted players on the rosters of the New England Patriots (16) and Los Angeles Rams (14).More than a third of the 300-plus players invited to the combine last year didn’t get drafted, whereas 38 players who weren’t at the combine did.Among them were P.J. Hall, a defensive tackle from Sam Houston State who was drafted by Oakland in the second round, and two players from Southern Miss: defensive back Tavarius Moore, a 49ers‘ third-rounder, and running back Ito Smith, a fourth-round selection by Atlanta.The biggest snub last year was Colorado running back Phillip Lindsay , the first undrafted offensive rookie ever selected to the Pro Bowl.Lindsay understandably has chips on both shoulders Ugo Amadi Jersey , one for going uninvited to the combine and the other for going undrafted altogether, and he figures one had plenty to do with the other.“Oh yeah, it’s disrespectful. But it fueled my fire and got me here to where I am today,” Lindsay said. “Maybe I wasn’t meant to go to the combine.”Miffed that John Elway had used a seventh-round selection on Arkansas running back David Williams, whose career numbers over four years with the Razorbacks didn’t even add up to Lindsay’s senior stats, the Colorado native nearly took the Baltimore Ravens‘ offer before calling back and accepting the Broncos‘ proposal.“But I’m going to win the starting job,” Lindsay added as he hung up on his new employer, vowing to beat out Williams, third-round pick Royce Freeman, incumbent Devontae Booker, and anyone else they would bring in.At 5-foot-8 Dwayne Haskins Jersey , Lindsay was accustomed to the underdog role, so he was ready to put his immeasurable attributes such as desire and hustle up against anyone’s bench press, 40-yard dash or vertical jump.“It comes down to heart,” Lindsay said. “It comes down to you not sitting here and letting people tag you as something. They’re sitting here telling you this is who you are. How dare somebody tell you this is who you are? That’s why it’s funny when these commentators tell you he’s going this round or he’s not this, he’s not that.“We don’t sit here and critique how they talk on TV, and a lot of time what they’re talking about, it’s stupid.”Lindsay rushed for 1,037 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie. Only a wrist injury denied him a shot at breaking Dominic Rhodes’ record of 1,104 yards for undrafted rookie running backs, set in 2001.Notable players who aren’t among the 338 invited to Indy this year include Nebraska running back Devine Ozigbo, Georgia State receiver Penny Hart D.K. Metcalf Jersey , Utah State running back Darwin Thompson, Cincinnati defensive tackle Cortez Broughton, and North Carolina receiver Anthony Ratliff-Williams.Lindsay is pulling for every one of them to have a rookie season like he did. He’s proud to serve as an I-told-you-so example for all this year’s snubs.“For me, I would tell everybody that the combine’s cute. It’s something where you go and put some little pants on and let them weigh you and all that,” Lindsay said. “Don’t worry about it. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. And that’s it.“There’s nothing necessary about the combine. The combine’s just something that somebody put together to … I don’t know. I wasn’t part of the combine, so I couldn’t tell you.” With the NFL draft around two weeks away, fans and NFL experts alike are making the final touches on their final mock drafts. There are many things to consider when trying to figure out where players will be drafted such as skills, potential, size and more.One of the biggest considerations to be made when it comes to a player's draft spot is their character. A player’s character is a fairly broad characteristic and can be anything from troubles with the law, to drug problems , to work ethics concerns. Basically anything that takes place “off-field” and is of concern is brought up here.With the recent incidents surrounding players like Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Josh Gordon, a player’s character is an increasingly important factor that teams look at before they draft them. If a player has proven time and time again that they can’t stay out of trouble or follow direction, why would a team spend millions of dollars to keep them around?For these players, even having one little blemish on your scouting report in terms of character can cause you to slip on draft boards and potentially miss out on millions of dollars. Especially in today’s day and age with social media and the internet, it makes it that much harder to hide these negatives from teams and the media.Over the years, we have seen many players slip in the NFL draft due to these concerns, and this year won’t be any different. There are numerous extremely talented players in the 2015 NFL Draft class that are likely to slip down the draft boards because of their character.Enjoy this list of the Top 15 players with character concerns in the 2015 NFL Draft.
