There’s always one player every year. That one guy who comes out of nowhere and becomes a “combine freak”.
This year, it’s a “senior bowl freak”, and that freak is Tanoh Kpassagnon. He’s like the Greek Freak in the NBA, because is name is equally impossible to pronounce.
He’s 6’7″, 290 lbs, and has crazy upside (get ready for that term to be the bane of your existence for the next two months).
One NFL Exec had this to say about him:
“First thing that jumps out is he’s 6-7. He’s 280 pounds, and he’s cut out of rock,” Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas said. “He’s as body beautiful as it gets.”
So, that exec definitely wants to have sex with him. Not sure if that guy was in the right place or what.
Anyways, there’s always that guy who pops…but there’s always that guy who flops after said pop. Tony Mandarich and Vernon Gholston are a couple of those guys.
Time will tell whether he’s Khalil Mack or Vernon Gholston.
