NFL teams meeting with individual players are a significant part of the draft process. These meetings can happen at the NFL Scouting Combine, pro days, the Senior Bowl, the East-West Shrine Game or a private workout.
For fans following the process, these meetings are sort of like poker tells for the draft, as they indicate what positions a team could be focusing on. Do teams draft players they haven’t met with? Yes, they do. It happens all the time (like with Lamar Jackson), but they have often spoken to other players at that position.

So far, teams have had access to players at the East-West Shrine Game, the Senior Bowl and at the Combine. The Ravens met with Auburn offensive tackle Jack Driscoll at the East-West Shrine Game. Let’s get to know him better.
Tale Of The Tape:
Weight: 296 pounds
Strengths: He has great hand placement and plays with a mean streak in the run game; has quick feet in a phone booth way (meaning in a short area); excellent football IQ and awareness.
Areas For Improvement: Must get stronger and work better in space (pulling).
Other Notes: Came to Auburn as a graduate transfer ahead of the 2018 season; was a Phil Steele first-team all-independent selection in 2017 while playing at UMass.
Draft Projection: Driscoll projects as a fourth- or fifth-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft.
