Emmanuel Sanders accused of lying to Broncos, skipping practice to party

He’ll be in the late first-round mix, even in a strong safety class.
“You are trying to match what you know about the player — his measurables, his statistics and what validated him as a football player on tape — with the person, the face, the personality,” said Reese’s Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage, who was Cleveland’s general manager from 2005 to 2008. “You want to marry those two together and say, ‘This is a package we want to try and draft once late April rolls around.’
There is no set protocol for how Combine interviews are conducted nor who participates.
