    Scouting combine

    The NFL Scouting combine is Feb 22-28, does anyone else like to watch it on NFL Network? I know it may seem boring to some but it helps me to focus on the new season at hand.

    He scares me with his lack of running ability in traffic and sometimes he doesn't see the cutback lane as well as he should. He was a great college player but I am scared about him as a pro.

    I love to see the hogs OL/DL on the bench and power lifts.

    From what I saw.. (I watched every game for 2 straight years)

    He actually has good vision.. That's one of his upsides.. better then Bennett thats for sure

    He might be better than Bennett and may be a great pro in the league but for some reason he scares me. If we take him in the draft lets hope he proves me wrong.

    Re: Scouting combine

    I think he can be just as good.. If not better then Lendale.. They both are iffy with the lines they played behind.. Im kinda worried about Maroney a bit too cuz Minnesota backs aren't the best.. Let's hope he can do it!

    Re: Scouting combine

    A couple of guys I really want to see work out is Jimmy Williams (CB Va Tech) and Darnell Bing S (USC) I think they will be pretty good in the NFL.

    Re: Scouting combine

    Yes yes, J Williams is a real athletic guy, don't know that he belongs at CB in the pro's but i'm also intristed to see him in action in drills. Bing also, greg blue is another guy. Of course the LB's.

    Drills are fun but i like watching bench press too, some of those guys are crazy the way they throw around 225 pounds. NFL Network covers more and more around draft time, its great. This year i will probably be recording so i can go back and look.

    I can't wait to watch it. I watched a lot of it last year and I thought it was fun as hell to watch. You get to see them do all their drills and what not. The bench press rep is pretty cool to watch.

    Forgot about Greg Blue he makes plays on the field. Another player that I am interested in is Ahmed Brooks from UVa he played this season a little heavier than he should have and he may have some big upside as a middle round guy.

    A couple of buddies and I are thinking about going to NYC for the draft, I think it would be awesome.
