Well, it’s been a minute since I did links. Let’s see how this goes.
Joe Rexrode of The Tennessean has a good breakdown of the what is going on with Jon Robinson right now. It includes this quote from Robinson about the importance of bringing players to Nashville for a visit:
“You might have an experience with a player at the combine who, you only had 15 minutes and maybe the guy was having a bad day, was stuck in an MRI machine all day long, was grumpy and kind of came across sour,” Robinson said. “You’re like, ‘I don’t know if this guy’s going to fit in with us.’ And then you bring him in and spend the day and you’re like, ‘This guy is everything we’re looking for’ or, ‘This guy would fit in fine.’ Each individual player is its own circumstance depending on outside factors. We won’t reshuffle the draft board from all the work we’ve done over the last nine months. But there will be some tweaking here and there.”
DeMarco Murray was the most improved running back from 2015 to 2016 according to Pro Football Focus. Robinson deserves so much credit for making the move to acquire Murray.
