Its his combine and pro day performance that have him falling. He did both with a hammy injury.
His interviews werent amazing, by some accounts either
Maybe im wrong, but seems like "Smoke n mirrors" to me
Happens every year there will be some guy that teams think they can depress just enough
to get both BPA and need later/ where they can take him.
Bennett, post combine interview wrote:“Hey I’m Michael Bennett, I was D-Line No. 5 in the 2008 NFL Combine, Don’t watch it, I ran slow.”
Bennett ran a 5.13 and posted a 31" vert.
He was projected as a - no worse than - day 2 pick. He went UDFA thanks to the combine and he interviewed REALLY well according to folk since (funny, a leader etc)
The combine is not an accurate assessment of on-field athleticism, just a test to see which football players could cross train in athletics. Thats it. Its positively prehistoric and makes the pro bowl almost look relevant.
If Polite falls beyond the 2nd, teams really need to check themselves as theyre doing it wrong. Still
