Year after year, you can always count on some sort of surprise injury to pop up with one of the top prospects for the NFL Draft.
This year, that surprise injury comes in the form of Alabama running back Trent Richardson, unanimously considered the top prospect at his position in this year’s draft class.
According to Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network, the Heisman runner-up running back will miss workouts at this week’s NFL Scouting Combine due to “minor” arthroscopic knee surgery that he underwent three weeks ago.
Richardson had the surgery to alleviate some of the pain resulting from an injury that he sustained during practice leading up the BCS Championship Game last month. Although he has reportedly been making good progress, he will skip the Combine drills in an effort to avoid re-aggravating the injury.
Unless this injury proves to be more than just a Keep Reading…
On March 22, NFL scouts will have a tough decision to make.
As it turns out, the two top quarterbacks in the 2012 draft class will be holding their pro day workouts on the same day: March 22.
Whether it’s coincidence or not, Stanford’s Andrew Luck and Baylor’s Robert Griffin III will both work out for scouts on the same day in hopes of displaying their value as NFL prospects.
The biggest thing that people will watching for is how many Indianapolis Colts representatives show up to each workout. The Colts currently hold the No. 1 pick in the draft and are expected to pick Luck. Griffin, however, hasn’t been shy in expressing his belief that he should be the top pick.
“As long as that door’s open, I’m going to keep trying to run through it,” Griffin said of being draft first overall. “And when Keep Reading…

After much deliberation, one of college football’s most intriguing prospects has decided to go pro.
According to multiple reports, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III has opted to forgo his senior season with the Bears and will petition to enter the 2012 NFL Draft.
The 2011 Heisman Trophy winner, Griffin is considered a top-10 pick who could potential go within the first two or three picks.
Now that the dual-threat quarterback has declared himself eligible for the 2012 NFL Draft, the No. 2 pick (currently held by the St. Louis Rams) becomes much more valuable as teams will seek to land the play-making gunslinger. With a number of quarterback-needy teams near the top of the draft, the Rams will be expecting a king’s ransom in return for their spot in line.
Although Griffin’s draft stock will certainly fluctuate as predraft workouts begin, it’s unlikely that he’ll Keep Reading…
