This weekend will be a huge one in the world of New York football, as the NFL will hold one of eight Regional Scouting combines will be hosted by the New York Jets on Saturday. In the last two years the Combine has helped to produce two Super Bowl Champion caliber players, and one never knows who will pop-up in this year’s crop.
The 2011 Super Bowl Champions Giants were able to find wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul in the 2009 and 2001 combines respectively. Both the Giants and Jets will be looking for key players to help build the future of New York Football, and that will start at the Regional Combines on Saturday.
