San Diego State's Adam Muema: God told me to leave combine

It's not uncommon for players to skip out on combine drills because their agent told them to. Former San Diego State running back Adam Muema did so Sunday for a different reason: God said so.

According to a report on U-T San Diego, Muema said he left the combine without performing any of Sunday's afternoon drills because he was "following God." Muema also said he was told that if he skipped Sunday's workouts he would end up playing for the Seattle Seahawks.

Muema, who is San Diego State's fourth-leading rusher in school history, told U-T San Diego that playing for the Seahawks is his dream.

"Can't go wrong with God," Muema said. "(God) told me to sit down, be quiet, and enjoy the peace."

Muema's next chance to work out for NFL teams will be at San Diego State's pro day in March.

He finished his college career on a high note, rushing for 229 yards and three touchdowns on the ground to lead the Aztecs past Buffalo in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

Muema was projected to be taken between the fourth and seventh rounds by the NFL Draft Advisory Board, according to U-T San Diego.
