Post NFL.com Brandt's pre-combine rankings: offense



Brandt's pre-combine rankings: offense


By Gil Brandt
Special to NFL.com


"(Feb. 18, 2005) -- Here's a breakdown by position of the key offensive players who will be at this year's NFL Scouting Combine. We are also listing the top players at each position, and players you might not know a lot about (yet).

Each player is listed with the number he will wear at the workouts so you can follow them duringthe live coverage of the combine.

The combine is one of the rare win-win situations the NFL offers. The teams go and check out every player at the invite-only workouts -- one-stop shopping for the draft. But for the players who go, it's even more valuable because they can show off what they can do in workouts for the top decision makers (head coaches, general managers and owners) from all 32 teams. It's the biggest job fair any college prospect could ever imagine having. And every year players "move up" draft boards thanks to their work.

Dunta Robinson, for example, ran and did the field drills and ended up being the 10th overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft after being thought of as a second-round pick going into the combine. He was the opening-day starter at cornerback for the Houston Texans.

These rankings can and will change after the combine because of physicals (players could have injuries or health problems) and workouts (e.g. a player might run faster than had been expected). Robert Gallery in 2004 had a complete workout at the combine and was the second player drafted. He will end up making over $25 million the next five years. In 2003, players like Terence Newman, Marcus Trufant and Jordan Gross all had complete workouts and ended up being drafted in the top 11 picks in Round 1 with signing bonuses totaling nearly $30 million ($29,896,501 to be exact).

Note: The combine track is fast -- great for running very good times. After all, this is the surface the Colts used to run on eight games a season (it will be changed after the combine). A good example is offensive lineman Jason Babin of Western Michigan, who was clocked in under 4.75 last year and drafted 27th overall by the Houston Texans."


Jeez...

Yeah I just finished reading it and even if Babin were to be mistaken for defensive line player it would be understandable, but offensive line?!!! Other than that egregious error it was a pretty good article.
