About a month ago, the 300 or so names of the invitees to the 2016 NFL Combines were released to the general public. One of the big names missing from that long, long list was Alabama quarterback Jacob Coker, who helped lead the Crimson Tide to a national title in 2016.
Well, we’ve finally got reaction from Coker himself, and uh… he’s “pissed off”, apparently.
Considering the Combine is bordering on absurd levels of invites, it is pretty bad that Coker didn’t even get a chance to go. Sure, Coker may not be the most spectacular quarterback available in the NFL Draft this year, but damn, you invited 330 people! Give the national champion quarterback a shot. If he fails, then he fails, but let him at least get the opportunity.
