Filling Up the Combine Notebook

As the Combine starts to break camp in Indy, here’s some more rumors …
Rich Getting Richer – Could the Patriots be about to re-sign Welker, Lloyd and even add a player like Ed Reed? We’ll see, but don’t expect the Patriots to take any steps back in light of the Brady restructure.
Da’Rick Rolled – Da’Rick Rogers might have the numbers and might be impressing teams on the field, but it’s his off the field problems that will plague him in the draft. Still, the Jets could use some more playmakers on offense and while he might be considered damaged goods, for a team like the Jets it might come down to whether or not they can manage the off-field stuff in trade for the on-field production.
Honey, I Flunked the Bench – Tyrann Mathieu put up the 225 only four times and scouts are starting to wonder about whether or not he could be useful in press coverage. Deion seems to think it’s not a problem and he will be an excellent NFLer.
Hunter or Hunted – Margus Hunt has a facsinating story and is an athletic specimen and the Combine proved that. Still, teams are wondering if he could actually be converted to TE … interesting …
That’s So Christine – A&M RB Christine Michael overslept and missed two team interviews … not good!
Keenan’s Workout – Keenan Allen will hold a April 9th workout, depending on how he does there, he might be able to solidify his first round status.
