Colin Kaepernick Documentary Compares NFL Draft to Slave Auction

Colin Kaepernick is at the center of a controversy sparked by a scene in his new Netflix documentary. The former NFL player compares the league’s draft process to the slave auction block, and some are in disbelief. The NFL Combine happens every February; prospective players are invited to do a week of skills tests, as well as submit to physical measurements. Kaepernick compared the poking and prodding in those examinations as leaving “no boundary respected, no dignity intact.”
