The Combine Report: 2018 NFL Team Needs – AFC East

The RCI Players With The Discipline Needed For The AFC East

In addition to utilizing the NFL Draft to solve an immediate need, teams look to the selection process to build depth and construct a solid roster of teachable, hungry players. This is why the NFL Regional Combine platform is significant.

The NFL Regional Combine became an invitational this year with sessions that were notably shorter in order to showcase more quality athletes. While the RCI trials went well, the true success of the 2018 class will ultimately be determined by the performance of those participants selected to play in the NFL.

An NFL team needs to build its roster according to the style of its division. Not every football player is suited to perform in certain divisions.

With the 2018 NFL Draft about to commence, let’s focus on the AFC East.

One word describes the AFC East, and that word is discipline.

The New England Patriots have set the standard for this division for over a decade. In order to have any chance of becoming the new “face” of the NFL, the other squads must have players who are disciplined in their skill set and technique and be fundamentally sound.

Check out some of the talents from the RCI who can fit the bill for this division from the later rounds or via phone call.
