My new favorite image, ever
Much of the weekend was dominated by Scouting Combine coverage, and before we venture into the links, please take a moment to go to this FanPost. Please read it, rec it, and give the writers a little thanks. I LOVE FanPosts like this. Big props to farris6659 for getting into the Combine and chatting up some folks. The picture with Jim Caldwell is great!
And like many of us, Caldwell was likely surprised as to how bad the prospects performed at the Combine this weekend:
- It seems the Colts and Marvin Harrison cannot agree on a contract restructuring. Now, Marvin is requesting Indy release him (tip to burc).
- If Marvin is released, he will likely sign with the Eagles.
- The Colts made Jeff Saturday an offer. He doesn't like it, and will test free agency.
- Indy still has major concerns regarding the health of OG Ryan Lilja. He missed all of the 2008 season, including Training Camp.
- As I've said, mock drafts and scouting reports on players BEFORE the Combine are useless. Everyone had Knowshon Moreno as a first rounder. At the Combine yesterday, he ran a 4.63.
- For comparison's sake, Mike Hart (who was a helluva lot better in college than Moreno) ran a 4.67 at last year's Combine. He was drafted in the 6th round. So will Moreno, it seems.
- Lots of disappointing timed speeds for the RBs.
- Mark Sanchez looked awful. Pat White was the only QB who looked like a QB.
- WR is very, very deep. Lots of speed and size.
- TE Jerod Cook is faster than most of the RBs that participated at the Combine. Wretched RBs this year.
- Bill Polian has been everywhere, doing numerous interviews and press conferences. Polian is big on Hakeem Nicks.
- Marlin Jackson and Bob Sanders will start Training Camp on the PUP, according to Polian.
- 18 to 88 is coming to grips with Jeff and Marvin possibly leaving.
- Coltplay updates the depth chart.
Finally, you might have noticed that the tags and links at the top and bottom of our posts are different. This is just another new feature our techs guys have provided, making it easier to cross-link stuff between our plethora of sites.
