NFL Combine 2017: 10 biggest snubs from list of invites
June 9, 2017
Every year, 330 NFL draft prospects are invited to Indianapolis to be tested mentally, physically and athletically in front of every NFL decision maker, plus most NFL scouting and coaching personnel.
However, even with 330 players invited, 15 percent of players drafted each year on average will have not been in attendance at the NFL Scouting Combine.
It took a while for Shanahan to reach this level of play-calling swagger. Houston was an OK offensive coordinating start, and Washington brought only brief, zone-read fun with Robert Griffin III. Then came the humbling time with Cleveland in 2014, lowlighted by the Johnny Manziel mess.

Atlanta presented Shanahan a big early challenge, too, in 2015, as Ryan and the rest of the holdover personnel struggled to grasp his complicated concepts at first. But with more time, better health and improved personnel, the Falcons’ offense became this season’s juggernaut and stamped Shanahan’s readiness as a head coach.

He’s very intense on the details of everything. He wants everything perfect.”
For his likely next stop with the 49ers, Shanahan will bring the offensive acumen and intensity of Chip Kelly, only with a more proven track record of NFL success. After busting with the Browns and flying with the Falcons, Shanahan also knows his ability as a coach and play-caller means nothing without a trusted franchise QB.
