This has caused some mixed reactions with a lot of people saying that they have every right to do that and that they deserve to get in shape and prepared for the NFL Combine. However, there was one big critic of the move in current Rookie of the Year candidate Ezekiel Elliott.
Of course, the worst bowl game Elliott ever played in was the Fiesta Bowl in 2015 while his team went to the playoff in 2014 —- and won the National Championship —- and 2013. Those aren't quite the same as the Sun Bowl and the Citrus Bowl, which are the games McCaffrey and Fournette are skipping this year.
