THE 2014 NFL SCOUTING COMBINE

ELITE ELEVEN OFFENSIVE LINEMEN!
By SUPER SCOUT MAX EMFINGER

When I was with the Dallas Cowboys in 1975-76, we had a Rating System and when I left the Cowboys in 1976, I developed a similar Rating System that we had used in the 1976 NFL Draft. This was the Tony Dorsett Draft and we used this Rating System to conclude that Dorsett was our #1 Player in the 1976 NFL Draft.

Although I developed this basic System, when I left the Cowboys, I shelved the System until 2001, when NIKE Sports developed a similar rating system and called it the SPARQ RATING SYSTEM. I then decided to bring back my Rating System and I called it the MAX EMFINGER ASSET RATING SYSTEM or MEARS RATING.

ASSET stands for Agility, Strength, Stamina, Explosiveness, and Technique. These are the essential tools for a superior athletic performance in any competitive Sport or Event. This new MEARS RATING SYSTEM or a similar rating system, identifies overall Athletic Ability, and it can be used by Top College and Pro Coaches around the country as an initial indicator of the athletic potential of an athlete on the football field.

Whether you are a College Football Coach and you only have one scholarship left to give in your current recruiting class or you are an NFL Team and you only have one Draft Choice left on your current NFL Draft Board, there needs to be a Rating System that you can go to and based on the highest rated player, would give you the very best player available irregardless of position. – By 2001, all of the other Recruiting Services were using the Five-Star Rating System Method which does not Measure anything. One year, at the start of the Spring, there were 45 Wide Receivers that were Rated a Four-Star. We went to bed one night and the next morning there were only 25. Someone had decided that there could only be 25 Four-Star Wide Receivers and had demoted 20 of them to a Three-Star.

Last Spring, the NFL  just finished their 2013 NFL Scouting Combine and they had some really incredible Measurables from some players who were just like many of you were a few years ago. We had two Offensive Linemen who ran a 4.7 Forty; a Defensive Back who did a 3.85 Pro-Shuttle; and we had ten players who did a 130 or better in the Standing Broad Jump. Cornelius Washington, a linebacker, did a 39-Iinch Vertical Jump and had 36 Reps of 225 pounds. Also a Defensive End that did 38 reps of 225 pounds.

My MEARS RATING SYSTEM or a similar type rating system is very important for the NFL Scouts, and the NFL Scouting Combine is the first time that “Accurate Numbers” are recorded on these players. It’s easy to say someone can run a 4.4 or a 4.3 in the Forty, but before an Accurate Hand-Held Timing by a Professional Scout or either by a slower, but Accurate Laser Timing is done, most Forty times are less than Accurate. Technique is also very important and that is why College Football Players entering the NFL Draft will hire a Sports Trainer to train and teach them how to do a Vertical Jump, Pro-Agility Shuttle, and a Standing Broad Jump.

We all thought that the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine had the best Offensive Linemen that we had ever seen, but we just needed to wait one more year, until the 2014 Scouting Combine. If you will  remember! The 2013 NFL Scouting Combine had three Offensive Linemen who recorded a 2,000 MEARS RATING or better and all three players, including a 2,106 MEARS RATING by Lane Johnson of Oklahoma; a 2,082 MEARS RATING by Terron Armstrong of Pine Bluff; and a 2,011 MEARS RATING by Kyle Long of Oregon. They also all three ran faster than a 5.0 Forty.

In this Scouting Combine, at least Five Scouting Combine Players ran better than a 5.0 Flat Forty, including Taylor Lewan of Michigan with an Official 4.87 Forty; Greg Robinson of Auburn with an Official 4.92 Forty; Trai Turner of LSU with an Official 4.93 Forty; Joel Bitonio of Nevada with an Official 4.97 Forty; and Matt Patchan of Boston College with an Official 4.97 Forty. Jake Matthews of Texas A&M also ran a 4.91 Forty; Xavier Su’a-Fila of UCLA ran a 4.94 Forty; and Brandon Thomas of Clemson ran a 4.97 Forty.

A lot of observers were not even aware of a Super Offensive Tackle by the name of Taylor Lewan, but after the NFL Scouting Combine on Saturday, there are not too many NFL Fans in the country who are not aware of this Super Freak. Lewan (6-7.5, 309, 4.87, 30.5, 4.49, 117, 29) put up the Most Incredible Measurables of any other player, including all of the Offensive Linemen and Tight Ends, on Saturday.

In the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine, Lane Johnson (6-6, 303, 4.72, 34, 4.52, 118, 28) had incredible Measurables and recorded a Scouting Combine Best 2,106 MEARS RATING. In the 2014 Scouting Combine, Lewan (6-7.5, 309, 4.87, 30.5, 4.49, 117, 29) matched him as he recorded a 2,108 MEARS RATING.

Although Lewan was unbelievably impressive, #38 Greg Robinson of Auburn was just as impressive as he ran a Mind-Boggling 4.92 Forty while weighing 332-Pounds. With his impressive Measurables, Robinson recorded a very impressive 2,049 MEARS RATING.

One other Super Star Offensive Lineman that was outstanding all during the Scouting Combine was Jake Matthews of Texas A&M. Jake is the Son of one of my old Houston Oiler Friends Bruce Matthews and so Jake has really got the Super Genes of Bruce in his makeup. Jake actually ran a 4.91 Forty on one of his Hand-Held Forties, but he was given an Official 5.03 Forty. Matthews also did an Outstanding 4.47 Shuttle and an Equally Outstanding 30.5 Vertical Jump. Jake went to Fort Bend Elkins High School and my Son, Eric, was a Freshman Quarterback on the Elkins Freshman Team before we moved to Klein Oak and then Covington, Louisiana.

About maxemfingerrecruiting

My mission and goal is to search for that hidden high school football talent that has not been found yet. I then evaluate him and try to help him to get some publicity. In 2003, 2004, 2005. and 2006, I hosted my Annual 7on7 National Championship. My goal was to get great athletes to one area where I could evaluate them and then help them with college coaches. The only drawback was that college coaches wanted to see the hidden gems in a game-type highlight film and so the college coaches suggested to me that I host a real All-American Bowl Game so that they could view these talented players in a highlight film, playing against other talented players. It's noted that the NCAA doesn't allow the college coaches to attend All-American Games or practices and so the Game Film is a great tool for the college coaches. In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game. In nine games in nine years, my wife and I have helped 549 HS football players to get a scholarship that came to our first Bowl Game practice without a single scholarship offer. This also does not count over 1,000 players who we have helped that did not play in our game, including over 100 players in the 2010 Recruiting Season. My Super Elite Top Gun Camp idealogy, is of course, to get as many Top Football Players to a Top Gun Camp so that all of my coaches and I can evaluate them, rate them, rank them, and promote them. There will always be "Diamonds in the Rough" to be found. My First Annual Max Emfinger's Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July of 2010. The Camp was amazing and loaded with unknown and known talent. Many of them were invited to play in our 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic. In 2007, in my 3rd Annual All-American Bowl Game, a player by the name of Kareem Jackson came to our first Monday practice, without a single scholarship offer. Jackson decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
