2020 NFL Draft: Patriots’ Bill Belichick skips beginning of NFL Combine to scout prospect in person


Greatness is a state of mind, for you are what you believe you can be, and Bill Belichick believes he still has work to do. That might be difficult to fathom for a head coach with six Super Bowl rings and the third-highest tally of wins in NFL history, but the latter is exactly my point. For all he has accomplished in his illustrious Hall of Fame-worthy career, he still trails Don Shula and George Halas in the wins category, and it’s that type of tidbit that drives him to want more — and the more after the more. 

That’s why, as he awaits a decisgend Alan Shearer believes Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood is ready to be a regular starter.The 18 year-old struck in last night’s 4-1 win over the Toon last night.“The early signs that we’ve seen of Mason Greenwood have been exceptional.ion from , and while other head coaches were cozying up in the warm confines of Lucas Oil Stadium as the 2020 Combine began; the 67-year-old coach of the was 323 miles south in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, not only scouting in person, but doing it in the rain. 

His primary goal was to set eyes on defensive end Tyshun Render, a Middle Tennessee State University standout set to enter the 2020 . The 6-foot-4, 256-pound Render delivered a career-best season for the Blue in 2019, with 49 combined tackles (36 solo, 10 for a loss), 3.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 12 games. 

Despite the Patriots recording 47 sacks and carrying the best defense in the league last season, they were roundly dismissed in an AFC wild-card game at the hands of the , who used league-leading rusher to effectively bulldoze through them at Gillette Stadium. For a coach as perennially successful as Belichick, that simply won’t do — the wild-card flounder being the first by the Patriots since 2009.

He’s expected to make an appearance in Indy as well, with player drills set to begin Thursday. But before he headed north, he had an appointment in the South, and he wasn’t going to let a little rain get in the way as he works to carve out his path to LV. For Belichick, it’s all about making the most of his time, and standing in front of media at a podium doesn’t make his team better.
