Ted Thompson Is Leaving No Stone Unturned: Scouting The Players All-Star Classic

New, comments

Players All-Star Classic Practice Notes: Day Two | National Football Post. If you haven't heard of the Players All-Star Classic, it's because it's a brand new college all-star game debuting this weekend. Yes, the same weekend as the Super Bowl, when most NFL teams will probably have their attention focused elsewhere. Maybe that will make it easy to remember when the game is played.

I'm not sure how valuable it is for scouts. Maybe it should be called the undrafted free agent bowl. It seems like a good place to look at players who might be worth a spot on the practice squad.

The only two GMs who were seen scouting the practices this week were Green Bay Packers GM Ted Thompson and 49ers GM Trent Baalke. I found that a little ironic because they were the top two vote getters for the AP Executive of the Year award. Maybe more GMs should be in attendance.
