We continue looking at Leslie Frazier's press conference from the NFL Combine in Indianapolis with the coach's discussion of how he evaluates players in situations like the Combine. Remember that last season, the Minnesota Vikings' coaching staff had the opportunity to coach at the Senior Bowl, giving them an extra opportunity to scout a good portion of the 2012 draft class. (It also, ultimately, led the team to decide that they liked safety Harrison Smith enough to trade back up into the first round for him.) Frazier was asked a few questions about that on Friday during his presser.
When WRs get on the field here Sunday, what catches your eye?
Part of the evaluation for us will not only be what they do on the field. But also when we get a chance to interview them in these meetings in the evening, along with when we bring them to Winter Park. So we'll have a chance to talk to them there as well. So it'll be a combination of what they do in these workouts, what we're going to find out when we go to their college campuses and work them out as well and what we get done in these interviews. So it won't be just what I see in the workout here but a combination of a lot of things between now and the draft that will determine if they're going to be a fit for what we're trying to get done.
