Which college football players could stand out at the 2021 NFL combine

Sports News
The 2020 NFL scouting combine begins Sunday, which means we're about a year away from Trevor Time. What about this year's combine, you might ask? There's more than enough coverage of what will happen next week. Every prospect will be dissected, every rumor will be disseminated and every gesture of a somewhat bored coach or general manager in a Lucas Oil Stadium suite will be scrutinized. Around here, we like to look ahead, to the 2021 combine. Barring a setback or a surprise, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence will be the main attraction in Indianapolis. Who else will be in the spotlight next year? Last year's combine look-ahead correctly pegged many of the most-talked about players heading to Indy, although Joe Burrow's name did not appear. Let's get started.

Tennessee defensive lineman Darel Middleton was arrested Saturday morning and faces charges of domestic assault and public intoxication stemming from an incident that involved his girlfriend.

Lamar Jackson will introduce himself and people will look at him funny. Not that they're meeting Lamar Jackson, but that he actually is Lamar Jackson. There is confusion, denial and, eventually, Jackson convincing people he is who he says he is. Even though the second-guessing makes sense. Because while Lamar Jackson plays football -- he was a three-year starter at Nebraska with five career interceptions -- he isn't that Lamar Jackson, you know, the MVP who plays quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens. 2 RelatedThat confusion will only accentuate this weekend at the NFL combine -- defensive backs work out Sunday -- as Jackson continues to navigate the draft process in a league in which the name Lamar Jackson is already more or less spoken for. "... One of the worst things, I'm like, 'How a...

The Citadel to use XFL rules in spring game

Sports News
Maybe some of the new rules in the XFL will catch on elsewhere. The Citadel will include a few of them in its spring game March 7 in Charleston, South Carolina. Among the different rules scheduled for use: • The XFL kickoff rule in which the kick is from the 35-yard line with the coverage team lining up at the return side's 35-yard line, 5 yards away from the return team. Neither team can move until the returner catches the ball. • There is no traditional PAT after a touchdown, with the offense having the option of running a play from the 2, 5 or 10-yard line, worth 1, 2 or 3 points, respectively. If the defense forces a turnover and return it to the end zone, the resulting score is equal to the number of points the offense was attempting to score on the play. • There can be double-forwa
