Default Combine Primer

Good article about the combine with a bit of history. I'm ready for the rumors and stuff to start rolling in and will watch everyone's draft board change as they get a better and better grasp on what the real scouts are thinking.

Quote:
Dan Marino
Hall of Famer is the all-time leading passer with 61,361 yards, 420 passing touchdowns and 17 NFL records.
• Combine complaint: Questions about test scores and how he would read defenses. Last QB taken in first round of fabled '83 draft, behind John Elway, Todd Blackledge, Jim Kelly, Tony Eason and Ken O'Brien.

Jerry Rice
League's all-time leading receiver, with league records for receptions (1,549), consecutive games with a reception (274), yards receiving (22,895), 1,000-yard seasons (14) and receiving touchdowns (197).
• Combine complaint: Ran a middle-of-the-road 4.6 seconds in the 40 at the 1985 combine, and the 49ers watched 15 players selected before him.

Emmitt Smith
Hall of Famer is league's all-time leading rusher (18,335 yards) and rushing touchdowns leader (164).
• Combine complaint: Ran 4.7 seconds in the 40 at the 1990 combine compared with Blair Thomas' 4.45. Thomas went No. 2 to the Jets, Smith went 17th to the Cowboys.

only smith has a real reason to complain there, combine-wise. marino got busted for coke and jerry rice went to mississippi valley state, he was never really expected to go THAT high in the draft.

that being said, most people thought blair thomas was better than emmitt smith in college, and would be a better pro. combine or not.

They has some weigh ins today. Better question is has anyone posted the numbers from this morning yet ? That will be the first fariy tail that falls. The college rooster numbers. Kalil added 12 pounds since the senior bowl. 299, that puts him beyond just a quick ZBS center. See what the extra wieght does to his times.
