did Jurecky say he was awfull?
Dont think so
I read he said something about being a project and he did struggle a bit with accuracy at combine but never heard from him the use of awfull word regarding Lamar Jackson
Yep! The interview process! Boardwork & talking to clubs. It was on Arizona Sports Saturday or Monday. It’s on their demand & free to listen too.

Anyone moving a guy up or down to the combine is an idiot

All that matters is what they did on Saturdays
I look for exceptions, anomalies and surprises:

Like when a 6-5 225 lb dude who'd be OK running a 4.6 cranks out a 4.38.

Or when a stud DT can only do 12 reps.

I do think stuff like that can move a guy up or down.

Orlando Brown this year is the first example that comes to mind. Projected first round for what he does in Saturday’s. He put up 16 reps and is slower than my dad, sorry @WisconsinCard. We’ll see draft day, but it seems he’s never stepped in a gym before

I read that they (ESPN) asked 3 coaches about LAMAR JACKSON and 2 of the 3 said they would turn their team over to LJ.That doesn`t sound like a guy who messed up interviews to me.Of course expecting any fair and honest information concerning any Louisville player from ESPN is a reach.Especially ********* Doug Gottleib.

Calvin Ridley definitely not pleased with his combine performance. Joked that he'll never have to broad jump in a football game.
"I just know whoever takes me is getting a guy who can play."

Have the Wonderlic scores for this draft class been released? Those results usually result in plenty of debate.

The big question is: "How much value do teams put on the Wonderlic when making a draft decision?"
