    Default 2012 Combine

    Wanted to start a thread devoted for all things combine.

    While many regard it as a dog and pony show, or a lot of nothing, many NFL execs still believe it is an important tool for the evaluation process as it allows hundreds of athletes from around the country to be evaluated in the same place, at the same time, under the same conditions. And even if the 40 time of a 325 lb. left tackle is completely irrelevant, it's still fun to see how compeltely athletically gifted many of these guys are.

    So feel free to post any thoughts, comments, stats, or info here!

    Watched the TE's work out today, Orson Charles looked pretty fluid. Dwayne Allen is a pretty big guy but moved well. Some of the others like Hanna from Oklahoma and Peterson from LSU had some troubles with drops. No one really blew me away though. I doubt we'll be in the market for a TE anyways though. Maybe a late rounder but that's it.

    I watched the OLine guys do their thing this morning.Some of those guys moved pretty well on some of the drills and struggled on others. The benchpress drill is one of my favs though.David Molk from Michigan did 41 Reps!!!

    Absolutely tore it up.....

    Luck showing quite a bit of athletic ability also, but RGlll was just plain sick.
    Was going to do some procrastinating, but decided to put it off for later.

    What I like about the combine is that it has created a good stage for us the fans to meet the next generation of players, before they are drafted.

    Years back....and that's not too long ago, we didn't have the chance to know why exactly our favorite team selected this or that player. Now we get a better idea.

    Very true. Not everyone watches college ball and has seen just how good some of these guys are. This is a great platform for people to get an idea of who the guys that their team will be drafting in two months.

    Personally disappointed that Trent Richardson couldn't work out, he would of blown away everybody. Guy is a physical monster.

    He's really a 3-4 nose tackle. Had a beastly work out but from what I've read his tape shows he's not much of a pass rusher. Really just a nose tackle to plug up the middle on the run.

    I'm just very against drafting DL in the first round after looking at the amount of guys that have busted there.

    Yeah his combine workout had me hyped,but I still hope we get a immediate impact player in the first round.For the last 2 years, our first round picks have worked out for us. I sincerely hope that continues.

    The WR Stephen Hill had one heck of a combine. He looks like a real keeper.
