Default 2011 NFL Combine

With the combine beginning tomorrow, I think that having a thread in which we discuss weigh-ins, drills, interviews, pretty much anything to do with the combine, is a pretty good idea. This way we are not looking through all kinds of threads to see who did what, and who interviewed whom (correct usage or no? not an English major).

Here is nfl.com's site on the combine, they always keep it up to date: http://www.nfl.com/combine

Buzz about USC OT Tyron Smith's weigh-in (from draftcountdown.com)

Quote:
USC OT Tyron Smith was only listed at 280 pounds by the Trojans this past season. However, for two months I have been telling people not to worry and that with a solid pre-draft training program Smith would be up over 300 pounds by the Scouting Combine. Sure enough, Smith checked in at a cut 307 pounds in Indy. Even more impressive were Smith's extremely long 36⅜-inch arms and massive 11-inch hands. Needless to say Smith passed the eyeball test! Smith took a big step towards his goal of being the first blocker selected in the 2011 NFL Draft today and if he performs as well as expected in drills the Top 10 overall could be within reach.

Default Re: 2011 NFL Combine

This is off subject some, but not entirely because it involves crack football evaluator and rock-star of the NFL Network, Mike Mayock.
In rating and grouping CBs together the other day on NFL Network in preparation for the upcoming Combine in a discussion of defensive backs, Mayock used the term "tranches" ? Hadn't heard that one outside of the context of a discussion involving subprime mortgages and Credit Default Swaps ? Mayock do like to throw his words around.

See now, I personally find this both hilarious as well as utilitarian. Because ya know, the Texans do seem to have taken a somewhat larger than proportionate share of TE's in the past draft or two, and your original and insightful comment which highlights this fact has made he aware of this for the first time. Kudo's to you for coming up with this fresh angle on the way the Texans front office has approached this aspect of managing a NFL franchise.

I Thank you. Your post shows great insight and originality, and I have benefitted from both the entertainment value and knowledge it has provided.

Its funny but an even more scary thought because of the fact that Owen Daniels did not get franchised before the deadline making the possibility of his tenure with the Texans over more realistic. Despite Dressen playing extremely well last year IMO, he's not a lock to be the opening day starter and with the Texans not afraid of drafting TE's with Daniels on the roster who knows how many resources they'll spend bringing more in if the plan is to let him walk.

TE Kyle Rudolph, Notre Dame 2nd round pick here we come

Good grief that guys got long arms and big hands. I hope he and other OT's do very well in the Combine and move up the draft board to top 10 status so that other players may fall to us.

If we take a TE at all in this draft Kubiak should be fired on the spot.

probably means Owen Daniels will be accepting the highest offer elsewhere.

I hope Newton has a good combine. Like you've said before, it would help us get the defensive player we need.

I'm fine with Daniels moving on to somewhere else, I thought we should have let him go before last year. Dreesen looked good 2 yrs. ago in relief work and did very good this past season as well. I'd move forward with Dreesen, Casey, and Graham at TE. Daniels is to expensive and injured to keep around.

Owen is top shelf in my book. Dreesen fits journeyman type label to me. Casey is a special teams leader who fills multiple back-up roles. Graham was a luxury pick Texans cannot afford to make but did anyway in response to possibility of losing Owen to injury or free agency.

Default Re: 2011 NFL Combine

Solder is showing why he should be among the top tackles in this draft (if not the number one tackle.)

Excellent 40 time (I heard anywhere from 4.97 to 5.05) and 10 yard split at 1.61
(The 10-yard time is especially important for offensive and defensive linesmen because they usually don't run further than that during a play.)

Solder's 10-yd time compares well with last year DBs at the combine (That's pretty sick!)

"Nate just ran his first 40 yard dash. Unoffially, Solder ran a 4.97 and more important, his 10 yard split was 1.61 seconds, the best of any lineman so far. His 4.97 forty ranks second.

Also, a sign of explosiveness, Nate Solder broad jumped 9'2", almost a foot over last year's average for offensive tackles. He out-jumped the other top linemen in this year's NFL draft.

UPDATE - Solder ran a 4.99 in his second forty."

Also, he did well in the mirror drill, showing that he can bend his knees with ease.

LOL, that's why they have two cameras.
I like to listen to different things they talk about (how to eveluate different positions and stuff) and then watch certain drills to see if the guys I want to see can do well in those drills (guys that I don't see enough games of.)

Default Re: 2011 NFL Combine

Texans will draft another TE!

Virgil Green (Nevada) is somewhat undersized at 6'3, 249 but posseses long arms (33-1/2).
He put up some incredible numbers:
10'10 broad jump, 42.5 vertical, 25 reps.

He's projected to run somewhere around 4.4 in the 40

Made a couple of nice catches in one of the drilsl (text-book arm-extending, high-point on the outside shoulder, impossible-to-defend kind of catch.)
