A San Diego State running back left the NFL Combine on Sunday in Indianapolis without running the forty, showing off his vertical leap, or pushing 225 pounds above his chest. His reason? God told him to depart.
“(God) told me to sit down, be quiet, and enjoy the peace,” Adam Muema told the San Diego Union-Tribune. The prosepct believes that God speaks to him through numbers, and that exiting the combine would make it likely that the Seattle Seahawks, his “dream” desitination, would select him in the draft. “Can’t go wrong with God,” Muema reasoned.
Before divine intervention, analysts projected Muema as a late-round pick. He rushed for almost five yards a carry for the Aztecs, scoring fifteen touchdowns and accumulating 1,244 yards on the ground.
