    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.

    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.

    Your quote is highlighted by your signature. Those pebbles without flaws didn't last very long, did they?

    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.
