‘‘Those are things that I've been working on since I've left Tennessee. It was a real humbling experience for me,’’ Rogers said. ‘‘I feel like it did help me in the long run. It’s sad that it happened like that. For me, personally, it made me change who I was and what I was doing wrong.’’
All that’s left is for the NFL’s decision-makers to render their judgments on the biggest questions of all:
— Has Rogers really made that big a change in six months?
— Can Lattimore be the player he once was?
— And are Barkley and Jones worth high draft picks?
‘‘Every year is not going to be the same,’’ Barkley said in making his case. ‘‘You can’t get better every single year. It’s physically impossible to keep throwing for more yards, more yards, more yards every year. There’s going to be some years where it just doesn’t click or things don’t go as planned.’’
