Let's keep all Combine info/discussion/etc in here, thx.

COMBINE ATTENDEES WOULD BE WISE TO RUN
Posted by Mike Florio on February 12, 2009, 3:46 p.m. EST

The latest issue of Sporting News arrived in the mail today. On the cover is a photo of four former Yankees in their prime. After noticing that a young Yogi Berra looks a lot like the guy who played Big Pussy on The Sopranos, I started to flip through the pages.

And I discovered some of the most thorough pre-Combine coverage I’ve ever seen.

So while we have no advertising arrangement with Sporting News (but, then again, I write for SportingNew.com), we strongly recommend buying this week’s issue.

Among our favorite features is a segment from Colts G.M. Bill Polian (yeah, the same guy we rip from time to time) regarding the importance of the Combine. And he makes a great point about the annual group of players who choose not to run the 40-yard dash in Indianapolis.

“Any time a player doesn’t run at the Combine, it raises a yellow flag,” Polian tells Clifton Brown. “If you’re fast, you shouldn’t be afraid to show people that you’re fast.”

Amen.

Then again, we continue to believe that the precise amount of time that it takes a guy to cover 40 yards in his underwear is largely irrelevant to his overall skills. Still, Sporting News points out on the page across from Polian’s comments that there’s talk Texas Tech receiver Michael Crabtree could slide out of the top ten if he can’t beat 4.5 seconds.

But Jerry Rice didn’t beat 4.5 seconds, and he only became the greatest receiver — and possibly the greatest player at any position — to ever put on a helmet that no one ever wears when running the 40.

The other problem with the running test used to assess incoming pro players is that, as someone explained it to us several years ago, there are only two occasions when a guy runs 40 yards in a straight line during a game: when something really good has happened, and when something really bad has happened.

But the scouts continue to obsess over these numbers because, in our view, they need to have some objective evidence on which to base their draft decisions, in the event that the guys they pick end up being bad players.

With each passing year, we become more convinced that no one really knows with any degree of certainty what kind of player a guy will be at the NFL level. It’s all a crapshoot, primarily because there’s no way of figuring out how a kid who was good at the college level will respond once he’s on the field in a game situation against the best of the best that the 120-plus Division I-A college programs have exported to the NFL over the preceding decade or longer.

Some find their stride, others find their ceiling. At that Combine, however, all should be willing to lace up their running shoes and show how quickly they can get from point A to point B, in the event that they’re ever running down the sidelines with an intercepted ball just before halftime of the Super Bowl — or chasing the guy who is.

Why don't they have them run in shells at least??? Wouldn't that present a more accurate time?

I've wondered this too...is there a reason anybody knows of why all the combine drills can't done in pads & a helmet? Wouldn't that make the results more relevant?

While I agree that they should have the players run in lite pads and helmets, I don't think it would make their times more relevant. I believe that some guys simply don't have their adrenaline pumping until game time, and then they have what is commonly called "game speed". Even running at the Combine or a Pro Day doesn't bring out their top speed, only the game does. I watched Michael Crabtree several times, and I don't care if he runs a 4.7, if I need a receiver I take him. I'd rather have a pedestrian speed receiver who can run a route, read a defense and catch the ball than a 4.2 blazer who screws up his routes, isn't on the same page with the QB, and drops every other pass that hits his hands. Crabtree has game speed. He was able to pull away from some pretty decent corners with ease when it mattered. He's a ball player, and those are the ones you want on your team.

If I learned one thing from Millen, it was that he always relied on the numbers from the combine too often, and that is not the most important thing. He would draft for speed instead of skill. I mean, speed is important... But a majority of the players invited to the combine are already in great physical shape and are able to run fast enough as is. If it was as easy as picking the fastest or strongest guy, every team would draft great.

CAL’S MACK SIDELINED FOR COMBINE
Posted by Aaron Wilson on February 18, 2009, 9:55 a.m. EST
Highly-regarded Cal center Alex Mack won’t be able to endure the rigors of the NFL scouting combine this week due to a sprained ankle he suffered Monday, NFL Network’s Adam Schefter reports.

Mack is considered one of the top interior offensive line prospects in the draft and has been projected as a first-round pick by many draft analysts.

Now, Mack will be limited to the meet-and-greet aspect of the scouting combine, which is also important in the mass job interview that will go on in Indianapolis this week. Mack said he’ll rehab his injury and prepare for his Pro Day in Berkeley, Calif., on March 18.

“While preparing for the combine on Monday with my trainer, I suffered a sprained ankle,” Mack said. “The injury isn’t serious, but unfortunately, it is going to keep me from working out this week in Indianapolis.

“No one is more disappointed than me, as I have been working tirelessly to further prove myself as a first-round pick. However, I don’t want to perform at anything less than 100 percent.”

That makes sense.

Although NFL teams would undoubtedly be impressed if Mack was to gut it out and go through the drills on a bad ankle, it’s possible he could wind up making the injury worse and hurt his draft stock.

Maybe with this happening he can slide to the 2nd and we can snag him there.

Why can't he bench? That's a huge part of the evaluation of OL anyway.

"Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

INDIANAPOLIS -- A lot of people expect three offensive tackles to be off the board in the first 10 or 12 picks of the NFL Draft.

At No. 8, the Jacksonville Jaguars may well claim one of them. A stud left tackle is a necessity for a team trying to refortify its lines.

O-linemen talked Thursday at the scouting combine. Ask around and you get the top three guys in all different orders. I'll go alphabetically by school: Alabama's Andre Smith, Baylor's Jason Smith and Virginia's Eugene Monroe all answered questions about what might set them apart. (Ole Miss' Michael Oher is a likely first rounder too, but while he said he's the best of the lot, he's generally rated as fourth so far.)

Jason Smith won the battle of the podium media sessions, but I have been told by several prominent scouts that means nothing when it comes to actual evaluations. Nevertheless, this is what I am armed with right now, and I thought you might be interested in a bit of what each of the top tackles had to say:

Andre Smith

Why should you be the first tackle taken?

Why should I be the first tackle taken? Hmmm. Just my hard work on the field. The way I go out and compete every play, try to dominate my opponent every single play.

Do you measure yourself against other top tackles in this draft?

I try to pick up certain things they may do as far as how they work out or something they may do different and try to see if it works for me, or if it's a hindrance to me. Eugene, Jason and Mike [Oher], I love all of them.

You said you weigh 332. There were reports you were up to 380.

No sir. The highest I've ever been is 345 ... I never had a problem at the university as far as having a weight issue.

How did you get your weight down?

Changing my eating habits, being disciplined, not eating after certain times of night.

What do you see in the quality of tackles in this year's draft?

All of us bring something good to the table. Every one of us do something really well. We like to compete. We work hard with our teammates on the offensive line. We have to play together on the offensive line. We play good in the system we're in.

Jason Smith

On your reputation for finishing blocks:

When I'm on the field, I take a lot of pride in physically assaulting somebody. As far as finishing them off, that's just a part of the block, so you don't really think too much of it because that's what you go on the field to do. So it's just something I practice real hard at, and I practice real hard at practicing, and when its game time it just happens naturally.

Have you talked to the Lions and is the No. 1 pick a realistic possibility?

Anything's realistic... I haven't talked to the Lions, but I do believe it's realistic that they will take a tackle and I do believe it's realistic that I can be the No. 1 overall pick.

What are your selling points?

First of all, I'm tough, I'm physical, and I have a great attitude. I show up every day willing to work. And I'm productive. And I have 12 games that shows it. And I have 12 weeks of practice that also shows it. So if you want to see a guy that practices hard, plays hard, look at my practice or look at my games -- you won't be able to tell the difference. I'll be going full speed, and every day you walk in there I'll have a smile on my face, ready to go to work.

There's a lot of technique involved. You don't just walk out there and hit somebody. But once you get your hands on a guy and grab him and squeeze him and slam him, or whatever goes on in the trenches, it's a great feeling. In the game of football, there's always something to work on. If you're an offensive lineman and you think you're great, retire. I'm still learning. And I honestly believe I'll still be learning till the day I retire.

Eugene Monroe

On why he'll do all the workouts at the combine:

It's a bit of that too because you don't want to miss out on an opportunity to show you have the ability to do as well or better but you decide not to do the drill.

Make the case for why you should be the first tackle taken:

I think over my career at Virginia I've proven that I can block anybody. I have the determination to improve my game and the ambition to succeed. And I'll never stop, I'll just continue to set goals, one step is completed, I set another goal and I make sure I do everything in my power to achieve that and if I can't, if there is a setback, I reset everything and I go back again and go to the drawing board and continue to grind.

Do you watch anyone in the league as a model?

Yeah, when I study film at times I will watch Walter Jones a bit. I wouldn't say that I compare my game to his but I will try to learn things from him. Originally I was just looking at how consistent he is with his footwork and his hand placement and his explosiveness. He's a really good player.

Are you in line with the idea you're the best of the tackles?

I hear it but ultimately that's not my decision and all I can do is position myself where everyone knows about Eugene Monroe and what type of player and person he is.

What's the competition like between you and the other top tackles?

Who is going to be the first one picked? We'll see in April. I can't predict that. We speak and get along pretty well. It's a very good group."

Some first day combine questioning of the LT prospects for you all.

I would be really happy with either Jason Smith or Eugene Monroe at 1a. even though I still believe our Defense should be top priority.

I though it was a nice little tidbit considering you can actually gauge their intelligence through their choice of words.

Here's another article from the combine. This is about Matt Stafford.

http://www.freep.com/article/20090220/S ... MJThzxg%3D

"INDIANAPOLIS – The Lions hosted a special guest for dinner Thursday night: Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford.

The potential No. 1 pick in the draft dined at an Indianapolis steakhouse with the Lions brass: president Tom Lewand, general manager Martin Mayhew, senior personnel executive James (Shack) Harris, coach Jim Schwartz and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.

The Lions are expected to do the same with a prospect each night at the NFL scouting combine. They need much more than the standard 15-minute combine interview to vet potential top picks.

“Obviously you’re going to do more research and you’re going to spend more time with somebody that’s a potential for the No. 1 pick than you are for somebody that you’re thinking about for a late-round pick,” Schwartz said earlier Thursday. “There’s not only a lot of money at stake, but there’s an opportunity at stake that we can’t let pass. It’s going to be a very, very in-depth process, not just here, but on the road further on, maybe back in Detroit later on.”"

I wonder if that means that we'll have our four candidates for the number one pick at the end of the combine? Or if there will be more than that?

http://www.nfl.com/combine/live/app You can watch it live if you'd like. It also has a link to the results as they come in.

Those TT linemen seem to be stronger than the rest of the pack. I think that's the third combine I've seen that in.
