The NFL offseason will look a lot different due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
There will be no NFL Scouting Combine, Pro Days will be limited and the NFL Draft will be virtual again.
However, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t other ways for NFL scouts to check out hopeful prospects coming into this next season.
Meet Wisconsin Whitewater OL Quinn Meinerz, who is turning heads and making it very easy for scouts to notice him ahead of the Senior Bowl this week.
Meinerz is listed at 6’3’, 320 and is not afraid to show off his belly to the people-- because, why the heck not?
And when you are showing off some skin, and showing out in practice, even for being a DIII player, you will most certainly get some eyes coming your way.
His belly shirt got him an interview on NFL Network after practice, where hosts compared Meinerz to DK Metcalf having his shirt off at the Combine during interviews.
Meinerz was fairly open to the idea of doing just that when he goes through the process himself.
The quote even got the attention of Metcalf, who retweeted the video from his personal Twitter handle.
So far during the practice week, Meinerz seems to be dominating the competition when it comes to the OL drills, all while showing off the keg.
Meinerz is showing off his stomach to the world, but he is also impressing NFL scouts and his stock is rising in the draft.
If by chance he falls later in the draft, maybe the Seahawks and Pete Carroll can recreate that Metcalf moment with their shirts off? Doubtful, but anything can happen.
Maybe more big men should take note of what Meinerz is doing and let it all hang out. Obviously, it seems to be working just fine for him.
