Only when it was Tim Tebow's turn. LOL. I don't watch all of it but I like seeing some of the skill position drills.

Re: The Official 2012 NFL Combine Thread

The biggest part of the combine is really all the discussion that takes place among teams and agents. In fact, in many ways the combine is as much about trades/free agency as it is the drat

Ha, Ha, I'll turn to it and watch maybe a half dozen kids jump straight up then change the channel, I'll turn back to watch a half dozen kids broad jump and change the channel, I'll turn back to see a half dozen kids run their 40 and change the channel, I'll turn back to see the QB's go through maybe two or three different types of throws and change the channel, then turn back to see the WR's and TE's make several different types of catches and change the channel, then I'll turn back to see the cone drills and again get bored and change the channel.

I don't know how people sit there and just watch everything. My favorite time is about 2 weeks after the Combine when all the draft magazines start coming out. Then the draft.

I like the daily recaps on NFLN but I usually don't watch it live.

Yes, I watch it. I DVR it and skim through each days workouts. Sunday with the offensive skill players is the most enjoyable part as far as what you are seeing on the field. And even if the actual combine drill is not that interesting you still have hours of Mike Mayock in the background giving his opinion on each player that comes on the screen.

Is it among the most riveting sports programming of the year? No...but for the end of February it's more interesting to me then most of what's on the tube.

Re: The Official 2012 NFL Combine Thread

I enjoy the combine although I don't watch all the events.
I would like it more if the NFL network would show all of the QBs throws (or at least the top QBs).
They're only making around 21 throws I don't think its too much to ask to get to watch them all?

If I know we're planning on drafting a certain position like rush OLB I like to watch that position group.
This year I'm gonna watch the Safeties in addition to the QBs.

If Luck, Griffin and Tannehill don't throw I wonder which QB is gonna steal the show?

My money is on Russell Wilson overall and Nick Foles in arm talent.
I think Foles and Osweiler are gonna flash big time arm talent that it could solidify Foles status as a 2nd round pick and may push Brock into the 3rd round.

If no Luck and no RGIII, then trade down get DeCastro and Tannehill, then other needs.

Re: The Official 2012 NFL Combine Thread

Is there a schedule to when they are doing each position?

I watch it here and there; I definitely don't pop a tub of popcorn and park myself in front of it all day.

It is amazing how far coverage of the NFL has come; there was a time when I lived in RI and the only way I knew the Redskins score was by the ticker at the bottom of the Patriots game and they only ran the ticker like once a quarter.

That will be something to see and if he doesnt will really change things. Unfortunately he's not going to throw (only run) which IMO raises a red flag.

Blackmon's speed will also be a big issue because he's not very tall.
