Great story I read yesterday from Steve Jones from the Courier Journal. I felt it was my obligation to pass it along. Enjoy!
No combine invite, but Burgess training hard Steve Jones, @stevejones_cj
Louisville All-ACC linebacker James Burgess said he was shocked to learn this month that he’d not been invited to this week’s NFL draft scouting combine. But he’s eager to try to prove his professional potential in other ways.
“That came from left field. I don’t know where that came from,” Burgess said of not making the combine. “But I don’t make the list. All I can do is put up good numbers at my pro day. Hopefully a lot of scouts come there and see what I’m capable of doing. I didn’t see (the lack of a combine invitation) coming at all, but you can’t do anything about it. You can’t pout about it.”
Former Louisville Cardinal Montrezl Harrell met with some media members on Friday in Chicago while at the NBA Draft Combine. Jeff Greer of the Courier-Journal has transcribed his interview, and you can check that out right here. This is about half of it, there will be a link at the bottom to read the rest of it.
How’s the draft process going so far?
It’s been a pretty smooth process. It’s definitely been a tough grind, switching from the college game to getting more prepared for the NBA, but it’s definitely been a smooth process.
What part of your game translates the easiest to the NBA?
Rebounding, playing with high energy and a high motor all the time during the game. I definitely feel like I can carry that over to the NBA and be able to play like that for the full length of the game.
55. Not just a random number to me. It’s a number that has followed me around my life. It was always my number in any sports I played. Whenever I create players on games they are always 55. It’s the number that comes after 54. One day I hope to live to see the age of 55. All valid points. Today I monitored twitter a little more than often and noticed that its getting as bad as Facebook there. So many things going down in one day. So many gripes, so many issues. So I decided to put down a list of 55 things I observed today. Here we go in no particular order.
