Brandon Marshall hosts mini combine for draft prospects
A receiver from Central Florida, Marshall was eager to improve his stock with pro scouts in the winter before the draft. They finally let me in, but not everybody can get that opportunity.”This year, nobody got that opportunity — because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the combine was canceled. He didn't want a repeat of a year ago, when pro days for draft prospects were canceled at the outset of the pandemic. More than a dozen players participated after training for weeks at House of Athlete in South Florida. Marshall extended invitations to others and had hoped for a bigger turnout, but pandemic risks may have deterred some prospects.
