Here’s one of the odder NFL Draft Combine stories you will read. Former San Diego State running back Adam Muema left before participating in running back drills. He claims he did so because God told him missing the workouts would result in him playing for the Seahawks.
Running backs competed in afternoon drills at Lucas Oil Stadium. Muema, the fourth leading rusher in Aztecs history, did not participate. He said he was “following God,” who told him if he missed workouts, he’d play for the Seattle Seahawks.
Playing for Seattle is his “dream,” Muema said. NFL teams are aware of the decision. “Can’t go wrong with God,” Muema said.
Muema, who ran for 2,702 yards and 31 touchdowns the past two seasons for the Aztecs, was projected to be a late-round pick. Your move, Pete Carroll.
