Adam Muema, the former San Diego State running back, has left this year's NFL Combine early on the instructions of God.
As reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune, Muema decided not to complete his remaining Combine drills after receiving the message, and believes it will work to his advantage in the long run:
"He said he was "following God," who told him if he missed workouts, he'd play for the Seattle Seahawks," the paper revealed.
And with Muema's dream apparently to end up at the Seattle franchise, he was confident that his decision will lead to the perfect conclusion come May's NFL draft:
"Can't go wrong with God," the player told the newspaper.
The player had an impressive college career numbers wise, ranking fourth in San Diego State history in rushing with 2,955 yards and 24 touchdowns.
But he is only predicted to be drafted somewhere between the 4th-7th round at Radio City Music Hall, and this latest move could hinder his chances.
Firstly because the Seahawks are pretty well covered in the running back position, what with Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin in place. And scouts from the other 31 NFL teams may be wary of a player who decided against working out at the Combine.
Muema will work out at San Diego State's Pro Day however as he looks to convince Pete Carroll and co that he is the right fit for the reigning Super Bowl champions.
