Sports Science & The 2012 NFL Draft

By Christopher DiMarino

I wanted to pass a long some interesting videos that I found on ESPN. The sports science videos are little more than a flashy way of trying to quantify in numbers what a football player does on the field. It shouldn\’t be taken too seriously, but it\’s a cool to watch. I saw the video for Coby Fleener and was pretty surprised. He has a tug of war against a sumo wrestler, and while the sumo didn\’t get spikes, it\’s fun to watch. This video at least will help those unfamiliar put a face to the name. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Luke Kuechly destroy the dummy as well. Enjoy.

    interesting stuff

  • Intropy

    Uh-oh. Kuechly led with his helmet. He should expect Gooddell’s execution squads at his door soon.

  • Jrfcaif

    Wow hope we get him the 1st round!

  • SteelersBall

    launched himself too. I like him.

  • Tacomaman54

    They both look great. How great would Fleener be in the end zone!

  • Teddy Bowers

    I wonder If Kevin Colbert nods with respect or chuckles like an eighth grader at this article…?

  • Intropy

    Definitely. If he falls to 24 he would be a steal who fills a position of need. I think he’s one of the safer picks in the first round.
