NFL Prospects May Have Tattoos Inspected During Combine
If the interview process during the combine was not stressful enough, a new process may start in wake of the Aaron Hernadez case.
Every year it seems during the NFL combine something strange always happens. For instance at this years combine a Colorado player was asked if “he liked girls?” According to CBS’ Bruce Feldman some teams may start hiring tattoo experts to decrypt players tattoos for gang affiliation.
Why would the NFL teams start doing this? Well when former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernadez got arrested his tattoos were examined for gang affiliation, which is standard procedure. Well according to one of the people who examined Hernadez he has what he called a “Bristol Bloods” tattoo on his right forearm.
NFL executives will be thinking that gang affiliation is a red flag and may not draft you as high for that. So we will see what happens at this years combine in March.
