The NFL has announced that North Texas is a finalist to host the 2023 NFL Scouting Combine.

Los Angeles, Indianapolis, and "Dallas" - though the Cowboys are technically based in Frisco and Arlington - were among the teams that submitted proposals for the 2023 combine.

FRISCO – A Jerry Jones Football Party is unlike any other, which is no doubt part of the appeal of North Texas being a finalist for the NFL Scouting Combine in 2023.

The annual event, which is set to take place this week in Indianapolis in 2022 and will return to some semblance of routine after COVID forced the 2021 combine to be staged remotely, has increasingly been recognised by the league as a cash cow that could be more profitable if it is on the move.

On Monday, the league confirmed that Indy will host the event for the following two years. And then?

The Combine has a strong possibility of becoming a touring road show that will visit North Texas in the future.

After decades of the NFL Draft being held in New York, the league made that cash-cow discovery in the draught. Now the NFL is likely to find out the same thing.

Los Angeles, Indianapolis, and "Dallas" - though the Cowboys are officially based in Frisco and Arlington - were among the bidders for the 2023 combine, according to the NFL.

Since the late 1980s, the combine has been held in Indianapolis, with the notion that Indiana is a "central geographical position." Of all, North Texas has the same advantage... plus a large airport hub... and the possibility of beautiful weather, even in February (Super Bowls excepted).

The Star at AT&T Stadium

The combine is, of course, a forerunner to the NFL Draft, which is shifting in the coming years, with Las Vegas set to host in 2022, Kansas City in 2023, and three cities in the running for 2024: Green Bay, Detroit, and Washington.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says he expects Jimmy Garoppolo to be traded "at some point."
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says he expects Jimmy Garoppolo to be traded "at some point."

Jimmy Garoppolo is still a member of the San Francisco 49ers, despite free agency and the NFL Draft having passed on the NFL calendar.
Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about Garoppolo's status during a press conference on Tuesday. Garoppolo is currently rehabbing from right shoulder surgery he had earlier this offseason.
"I believe he will be traded at some point, but who knows?"
Since the team drafted Lance last summer, the writing has been on the wall for Garoppolo's exit.
Garoppolo also has a $26.95 million cap cost this season, so keeping him on the roster at that number isn't a good financial decision.

A former NFL draft pick reportedly was caught on video fighting a United Airlines worker and even knocking him to the floor at one point and bloodying his face.
A former NFL draft pick reportedly was caught on video fighting a United Airlines worker and even knocking him to the floor at one point and bloodying his face.

A former NFL draught pick was apparently seen on film striking a United Airlines employee, sending him to the ground and bloodying his face.
Brendan Langley, a third-round choice in the 2017 NFL draught, is the football player, according to TMZ.
Despite Langley's assertion that he didn't throw the first punch, the airline employee was not detained, according to the publication.
However, the employee advances, raises his fists, and slaps the passenger in the face:

"You saw that s**t?" the passenger yells after being slapped.
As another person — apparently a UA employee — enters the camera and raises her hand as if to stop the argument, nothing else happens.

Deshaun Watson suspended?
Deshaun Watson suspended?

Deshaun Watson will he get suspended?
The decision might be made shortly, and the suspension could be lengthy.
The NFL will make a judgement on whether or not to suspend Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson soon.
The evidence against Deshaun Watson continues to accumulate as each witness testifies throughout the pre-trial discovery phase.
Several Vegas betting shops are currently offering a 6 game over/under on suspended games.
Deshaun Watson was forced to sit out the whole 2021 NFL season due to a pending legal matter.

A member of Wabash Station inquired on the May 17, 2022, episode of the Powercat Podcast if Deuce Vaughn, who is entering his junior season, will declare for the NFL Draft following this season.
One is the potential that no matter what he does, he will not be drafted because his measurables will deter teams from choosing him.
"One way to look at it is this: Why go out early if you're not going to be drafted, especially not high?"
He's not going to be drafted as a running back.
He'll have to find a place for him.

The Las Vegas Raiders 2021 NFL Draft class got good reviews in a one-year regrading by Pro Football Focus

Pro Football Focus gave the Las Vegas Raiders' 2021 NFL Draft class high marks in a one-year regrading. The Las Vegas Raiders' previous NFL Draft classes have been chastised for making poor first-round selections.
That's probably a large reason why Pro Football Focus gave the Raiders' draught class a C last year.
Looking back on every team's 2021 draught class, however, it's clear that the Raiders' whole class made a significant effect in the team's playoff run.
The 2021 Raiders draught class, which has already been regraded as a B-, could end up being more fruitful for years to come.
