Do players really have a chance at making a roster if they’re not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine?
The answer to that question is yes, and you need look no farther than defensive end Benson Mayowa for the reason why. The pass rusher from the University of Idaho was not invited to the Combine last year, but took the first step toward earning a place on the 53-man roster of the Super Bowl champion Seahawks because of his efforts at a regional combine.
“Man, I didn’t envision any of this,” Mayowa said during the process. “But when you work hard, it pays off. When you grind, people start noticing what you’re doing.”
Another regional combine will be conducted at VMAC on March 22-23, with the second day for kickers and punters.
The events are open to players eligible for the 2014 NFL Draft who did not attend the just-concluded Scouting Combine in Indianapolis; players eligible for a prior draft, but never signed a contract; and players with some pro playing experience, but who have been out of the game for a period of time.
The top performers at each regional combine will be invited to the super regional combine April 12-13 at Ford Field in Detroit.
