After the sun made an appearance on Friday, the snow, cold and clouds have returned to Indianapolis for combine day three. Today should be a busy day as Head Coach Josh McDaniels addresses the combine media at 1:30 p.m. EST and the defensive line and linebackers make their way through the media room.
Also we are hoping to get an appearance from the quarterbacks and running backs who didn’t make it in to the room yesterday. That list includes; Sam Bradford, Jimmy Clausen, Colt McCoy, C.J. Spiller and Jonathan Dwyer.
Workouts have begun on the field behind us with the offensive linemen running the 40 and going through their drills. To stay up on all of the workouts and to watch live feeds, visit the NFL’s combine site by clicking here.
As we have the last couple of days, we will do our best to give you the sights and sounds of the annual job fair and with workouts starting; we will fill you in on the latest buzz.
11:14 a.m. EST: Most of the morning buzz has surrounded Maryland offensive tackle Bruce Johnson. The 6-foot-6 314-pound lineman put up 34 repetitions of 225-pounds in the bench press and has put up some of the top times in the 40-yard dash and distances in the broad jump among his position group. Some talent evaluators ofter remark that a player passes the “eye-test” based on their shear physique. Well I am not a talent evaluator by any means, but this guy passes that test with flying colors.
Also a lot of talk has surrounded LSU return specialist Trindon Holliday and his time in the 40. Unofficially, some scouts clocked him at a blazing 4.22 seconds, which if it becomes official, would be among the fastest times in combine history.
