First offseason event, the Combine, now on in Indianapolis.
Yesterday was the offensive linemen's turn, and it was both hilarious to watch 350lbs men running and jumping, then amazing to see them clock 5.5 secs 40 yard dashes and 9 feet standing jumps. Looks like Matt Kalil of USC cemented his place as the best Tackle prospect, and will probably go in the top 5 and probably to the Vikings.
Today is the turn of the QBs, WRs and RBs. Just saw Robert Griffin III of Baylor run 4.41 which is an incredible time. Luck from Stanford, no.1 QB prospect and Tannehill for Texas A&M, no.3, are also out there today.
This is an interesting article on the QBs which have been included here to just throw during the WR drills. TJ Yates with the Texans is someone who did this last year and subsequently got drafted.
The other big news is Peyton Manning. Biggest offseason story probably - he's gonna retire, stay with the Colts, or move to the Chiefs/Dolphins/Jets depending on who you listen to.
His arm has been described as a 'noodle' by one journalist so it remains to be seen if he can play again. If he returns, it's not with the Colts probably. Dolphins fans have already put up a billboard in Miami with him in a #18 Dolphins jersey, but I don't think it's a good move for us. I just don't believe he'll be the same QB, although letting the Jets take him is a huge risk if he turns out to be the same guy. Manning in the AFC East with two Brady games a year would be good for the league though.
