Quarterback Russell Wilson put on a show Wednesday at the University of Wisconsin’s pro day
While Packers general manager Ted Thompson spoke under a veil of secrecy about Matt Flynn on Friday, his coach, Mike McCarthy, sounded like the QB’s biggest advocate when discussing the soon-to-be free agent at the NFL Scouting Combine.
As Michael Lombardi wrote Friday, the NFL Scouting Combine is one part player convention, one part lying convention. The general managers with the best poker faces are the ones who usually emerge with the most chips in the upcoming draft.
Hawaii hosted its pro day on March 31, not near the beautiful beaches of Honolulu but rather the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

Midway through the season, it’s time to see what we’ve learned. I took a look at Ted Thompson, Eric Mangini, Vince Young, Roy Williams (of the Cowboys), Tom Coughlin and, last but not least, Drew Brees, on Saturday’s NFL Total Access on NFL Network.
