That's interesting. It's not a good excuse, but I could see a situation where you get frustrated by the lack of gloves, and then it all falls apart and you get nervous because you know you're messing up and then it snowballs...
Now you don't want that to even be an option with a QB. But if I then take him to a private workout, I could simply give him a mulligan if he's that much better with the gloves.
Which sucks for us. We don't get to see those private workouts or even get reports about them. This kid's stock is going to be the biggest damn question mark in the draft because of that pro day. How he does in private workouts will determine his fate.
I agree and that's why I always get a chuckle when some draftniks act like they know everything about a prospect, even though they never get to work him out or watch teams work him out, or interview him or actually check out his character rather than relying on the media, etc. etc.
