"Injuries" Before the Draft Combine
I know there are always mitigating circumstances to why players get injured and when they have surgery, but it always seems like there are a handful of prospects who save surgeries and get 'injured' during this time of year.
Are some of the players afraid of their measurements and workouts going into the draft? Are they trying to live off of their legend?
This is one of the primary ways that the NFL draft is different from the NBA draft. NFL players will drop if they are injured going into the combine, but NBA players may actually rise.
