SociaLight: Ravens Players Say Don’t Buy Into the Combine Hype

There are the Combine warriors.

And those who don’t receive an invite, who go on to do great things in the league.

For every Alabama superstar that lights up the Combine, there’s a player whose skill set doesn’t quite translate in a T-shirt and shorts.

Tavon Young famously measured in as the smallest player at the Combine in 2016 at 5-foot-9, 183 pounds.

DeShon Elliott and Young had some laughs poking fun at the others’ Combine performances.

Orlando Brown Jr. infamously struggled at last year’s Combine, but it didn’t deter the Ravens from selecting him in the third round.

And, Zeus has something to say about the process. He took to Twitter to spill the tea. Evaluators, listen up.

(Secretly I’m rooting for fashion designer. The guy can dress.) 

Another Raven wasn’t pleased with his own performance at the NFL Combine. Despite being drafted in the first round and having a good showing, Marlon Humphrey felt like he could have done more.

You can always count on your teammates to keep you humble. Right, Marlon?

Robert Griffin III didn’t struggle in the speed department, but he knows that’s not the ultimate goal.

The draft process certainly works for many players, but the Ravens are here to remind those that slip through the cracks that everyone’s journey is different.

The true winner of this year’s Combine? Aniyah Judon. She’s a star.
