As you all know, SB Nation and Stampede Blue will be at the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine, which officially starts today. Also at the Combine are Kevin Ewoldt of Hogs Haven (Redskins blog), Ryan Van Bibber at Turf Show Times (Rams blog), and Dan Kadar of Mocking the Draft (NFL Draft blog). Needless to say, we should have the entire Combine covered, from how players performed to who talked to what team, and when. We hope you enjoy the coverage.
If anything, it will take your minds off all this crazy CBA stuff.
Other folks covering the Combine are our friends at National Football Post which, along with Walter Football, offers some of the best pre-and-post-NFL Draft analysis. In addition to covering the Combine, NFP's , Wes Bunting, Andrew Brandt, and Brad Biggs are conducting an all-day crash course on football, CBA, agents, media, and scouting on February 25th called National Football Post's "Chalk Talk."
Some info on the seminar:
If you aspire to work in football or simply to to learn more about the inside workings of the game, this is a must for you. You will receive real world practical knowledge that will allow you to work within a very exclusive community as seasoned experts dedicated to helping you achieve your goals will share their experiences, insights and formulas for breaking into to this highly competitive field.
I believe you can still register for the seminar. If you follow Andrew, Wes, Matt, or Brad on Twitter, you know these people are knowledgeable about the game behind the game.
