List of combine participants
This one is for WolverineFan:
Michigan leads all schools with 14 players in 2017 NFL Combine
In all likelihood they will break the school record for players drafted this year.
Which makes it even tougher to stomach that in all 3 games they lost this year they blew a lead on the final possession. Teams with that much experienced talent should not be doing that.
Chad Kelly has his combine invitation rescinded.
So the NFL screwed up..
Any notably combine snubs? I was hoping UH LB Steven Taylor would get an invite. He's really impressed me the past 2 seasons.
Yeah I'm surprised by that one. The three biggest to me are Taylor, Elijah Lee, and Hunter Dimick.
shhh.. I am hoping Dimick is there for us in 4th. He is really good. Bolles in first and Hunter in 4th would be sweet.
IT'S COMBINE WEEK: - 2017 NFL Combine Coverage on NFL Network
I dunno but maybe the problem is in the coaching ? While Harbaugh is known as a legendary recruiter that of course don't necessarily mean he's much of a game manager.
Well he took Colin Kaepernick to the Super Bowl so he can clearly coach. The problem is he developed some bad habits in the NFL. He has a tendency to sit on leads and you can't do that in the college game.
The 2017 NFL Scouting Combine kicks off on Wednesday, March 1 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s schedule of events: http://www.houstontexans.com/news/a...Schedule/a9564825-cf0f-4448-a8fd-1d8040b61a27
Combine needs to open its doors to every draft eligible college football player. If the venue becomes too large for Indy, then Regionalize the event and put it in multiple locations. Let fans attend and of course pricing could be based on folks being able to reach down and grab their ankles since it's an NFL event. Nevertheless, it could be pretty exciting for fans and players alike.
NFL Scouting Combine 2017 player measurement tracker
(3 early favorites out the first group, Eric Bolles, Utah, Dion Dawkins, Temple and Dorian Johnson, Pittsburgh)
Don't they already have regional combines?
Mostly for the guys not invited to the Combine. I would like to see equal footing and coverage.
Measurements for OLine and RBs are complete and listed (see post 14 for link).
Fournette was the heaviest back at 240. Cook came in at 210, Foreman at 233, Kamara at 214.
Wonder if Fournette will run the 40 at 240? Looks like Foreman dropped weight to run.
Leonard Fournette weighs in at 240, putting a spotlight on his speed

Former LSU running back Leonard Fournette was the heaviest man in the group when the running backs hit the scales at the Scouting Combine on Wednesday. But will his weight be viewed as a positive or a negative?
Fournette weighed 240 pounds, and he measured at 6 feet, one-half inch. That’s five pounds heavier and half an inch shorter than LSU listed him at.
Five pounds and half an inch isn’t a big deal, but it will cause NFL teams to focus a little more closely on his speed when he runs the 40-yard dash and other on-field drills on Friday. If Fournette can show off blazing speed at 240 pounds, he can solidify his status as a Top 10 pick.
On the other hand, if Fournette runs slower than expected, that will raise questions about whether he’s a plodder who used his size to break tackles at the college level but won’t have the burst to pull away from defenders in the NFL.
All eyes in Indianapolis will be on Fournette when he steps to the line on Friday.
