Travis Kelce's Questionable Interview Highlights an Imperfect Combine Truth

Given the stranglehold the NFL has on the North American sports scene, it's unsurprising that the league's annual scouting combine makes plenty of headlines

For fans and executives alike, it's a way to get a glimpse at the future. Who wearing red, white and gold, for example, wouldn't be excited about the prospect of Patrick Mahomes throwing to a speedster like Xavier Worthy?

But, with that being said, it's easy to get caught up in the hype. 


While we logically know that working out on an empty field is a bit different than playing in a high-stakes game, it's tempting to draw a direct line from combine performances to an NFL career.

"At the combine, I had some bad interviews," Kelce recalled

"The Cowboys, they were kind of pressing me about having this red flag of missing a year ... smoking weed. I don't know if I was having a bad morning, I basically was just, I don't even know if I want to say this."
