Today Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert sent a message to all the juniors leaving early to enter the NFL Draft. He was asked about the draft class and Colbert was very blunt.
“This is probably one of the deepest drafts ever, but I fear it’s also the most immature,” Colbert said Thursday morning at the NFL Scouting Combine speaking to media at Lucas Oil Stadium.
“A big part of the evaluation is what they do in big moments,” Colbert said. “For quarterbacks, what are they doing on third down? For a pass rusher, what are they doing when you need a sack? … What are they doing in big moments?”
Colbert said the scouting department is working to remove the emotion of the hype and evaluate to make decisions based largely on football but without discounting maturity level.
“They’ll grow physically,” Colbert said. “But if you fail emotionally early, it can be career-ending.”
There are almost 100 players foregoing their Senior season to become a 2014 NFL Draft Prospect, and it looks like Kevin Colbert will be evaluating his juniors with a fine tooth comb.
