Ravens’ John Harbaugh will not attend NFL combine

John Harbaugh, Ravens

A couple of teams have already made the executive decision to not send their head coach to the NFL combine and the Baltimore Ravens can be added to that list. Just a few days before it begins, it has been decided that John Harbaugh will not be attending the NFL combine.

Over the years, head coaches typically stay for the majority of the NFL combine to get a view of the incoming prospects. However, in recent years, the event is starting to become more of a television spectacle rather than a way for teams to get information on players.

In addition, Harbaugh recently underwent knee-replacement surgery. That would be a good explanation of why the Ravens head coach wouldn’t be in attendance next week.

Besides the Ravens, the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams won’t be sending any of their assistant coaches to the NFL combine. Instead, both the Broncos and Rams are choosing to spend the time consulting with their new coordinators.

For this year, the NFL combine is making a few notable changes. Among them, the on-field drills will be taking place at night to give people a better chance to watch it. Additionally, interviews will be conducted during the daytime and there are fewer of them being done.

It’s also important to note that each team will be able to receive information on how each prospect performed. Also, some teams are interested in how a player does on his pro day.

With the NFL combine undergoing changes, there are more teams approaching it differently this year. Even though Harbaugh has a reasonable excuse for why he won’t be present for the event.
