Welcome to the Truda Report everybody. Nothing extremely important is happening in sports today, but here are the highlights:
Duke plays North Carolina tonight at 8pm Eastern time and the NFL Scouting Combine takes place for the wide receivers, quarterbacks, and tight ends. This could be a huge day for Patrick Mahomes to boost his draft stock and for Deshaun Watson to show he can be an effective NFL passer. John Ross was the true highlight so far of the combine though, as he broke Chris Johnsons 40 yard dash record set back in 2008. Ross ran a 4.22, beating Johnson's 4.24 record.
I personally think that the 40 yard dash is an overblown event, but breaking the record definitely has Ross shooting up my Big Board as a deep threat receiver able to take the top off the defense. With speed like that, he has the potential to emerge as a Kenny Stills/ Brandin Cooks type player.
Expect more updates later in the week on the combine and on whatever else headlines the news. Open up the "Contact" tab to give me your opinion on how Ross breaking the record will impact his draft stock.
