Colin Cowherd: “This weekend Zach Wilson had a Pro Day and Twitter exploded. It’s embarrassing and it’s ridiculous. ‘HEY EVERYBODY, ZACH WILSON WAS GREAT AGAINST AIR!’ Forget the fact that he’s throwing to a college teammate, he’s comfortable, it’s indoors, he’s not wearing pads, and there’s no defense – it’s all about COMFORT. The NFL is the opposite and is all about DISCOMFORT… Folks, he’s a professional athlete now. This is what they do. They can do tricks with the football, and he can make behind-the-back throws. Making good throws against NOBODY is the minimum. Every year people freak out about Pro Days, it means NOTHING!” (Full Video Above)

Check out the video above as Colin details why football fans and the NFL media alike need to stop acting like an elite college quarterback’s ‘Pro Day’ is a relevant determination of a player’s future in the pros.
