NFL Prospect Leaves Combine Because He Says God Told Him To

Some draft prospects don't take part in drills at the NFL Combine due to injuries, but Adam Muema was healthy. His reason for departing from Indianapolis early was unique.

Muema, a running back who played at San Diego State, left the combine without participating in any running back drills because he said that God told him to. And apparently, if Muema followed God's wishes, he'd be taken by the Seattle Seahawks.

From U-T San Diego:

"Can't go wrong with God," Muema said.


Muema, 21, said his immediate plans are undecided.

"(God) told me to sit down, be quiet, and enjoy the peace," he said.

Muema said he communicates with God through numbers.

Muema, who was originally projected as a late-round pick, can still show off his talent at San Diego State's Pro Day next month, if God allows him to. If not, check back in May to see if the Seahawks draft or sign Muema.
