Things heated up this evening when The Opening participants joined the Elite 11 quarterbacks here in Frisco. Measurements, 40-yard dashes, power ball, and broad jumps were followed by position-by-position situations and drills - OL vs DL, RB vs LB, WR vs CB.

If there's a subtle sabotage of the 2019 season that doesn't involve injury, this is one real possibility.
