Several strong performances by linebackers on Monday caught the attention of NFL team officials who attended the combine.
Wake Forest LB Aaron Curry likely strengthened his resume — and his ascending draft status — with an impressive performance Monday at the NFL Scouting Combine.
USC LB Rey Maualuga‘s scouting combine workouts were cut short Monday by a leg injury he sustained near the end of 40-yard dash.

Missouri WR Jeremy Maclin tripped and fell during a late-morning passing drill and was slow to get up before being helped off the field by two trainers, who immediately brought him to a training table.

So that’s where we begin. Not much is going on in the NFL that isn’t happening in Indy. Nearly every executive, coach and scout is in or around town, the current mecca of the football world … and you’d be hard-pressed […]
California center Alex Mack said he sprained his ankle while preparing for the NFL Scouting Combine, and that will cause him to skip the drills in Indianapolis.

LSU DT Charles Alexander, USC DB Josh Pinkard and Texas WR Jordan Shipley won’t be among the more than 300 players taking part in the four-day combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
