While NFL talent can come from anywhere, certain universities tend to see many of their players drafted into the league.
The University of Alabama, LSU, Ohio State University, and the University of Georgia are just a few of the top NFL producers.
When a marquee player emerges from a lesser-known school, they usually have their work cut out for them, given their smaller exposure on a national stage.
For players from smaller schools, the combine is a great opportunity for them to showcase their skills.
Due to an injury, an expected second-round draft pick might have a diminished opportunity.
Boise State S JL Skinner, projected as a Day 2 pick who was expected to perform well at the Scouting Combine, tore his pec in training Friday, source says. Will still interview with teams this week but can’t do any drills. Surgery to be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache next week.

JL Skinner, a safety from Boise State, reportedly tore a pectoral muscle recently, which could hurt his draft stock.
He won’t be able to partake in any drills during the combine, but he will still attempt to interview with prospective teams.
Skinner had an incredible season in 2022, racking up 62 tackles and four interceptions.
He has been on the radar of many NFL teams, given his 6-foot-4 and 220-pound frame.
Skinner possesses the intangibles to be a difference-maker in the NFL, but this injury could set him back.
The good news for Skinner is that, if it is a low-grade tear, this recovery could take as little as four to six weeks.
However, recovery could take as much as three to four months, depending on the severity of this tear.
For Skinner’s sake, hopefully, this is just a low-grade tear, and he is able to return to normal activity levels within a month.
