I’ve been doing this combine thing for a long time now, and today I saw a first.
In the halls of the Indiana Convention Center, where prospects get poked, prodded and interviewed behind closed doors, were several offensive linemen running 40-yard dashes and practicing their starts. Someone had even put tape down on the carpeted floors for this impromptu track meet.
Imagine that, 300-pound men running down the halls in shorts and t-shirts, all in an effort to prepare for Saturday’s workouts in Lucas Oil Stadium.
We’ll be showing those workouts in a live stream here on NFL.com between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. ET. During that time we’ll be having five streams for you to choose from: NFL Network coverage, the 40-yard dash, jumps, shuttles and press conferences.
Too bad we weren’t streaming from the halls of the convention center today.
