Which Players Stood Out At the Combine?


Feb 25, 2014; Indianapolis, IN, USA; Deion Sanders interviews Alabama Crimson Tide defensive back Ha

With the combine complete, which players stood out to you? Which players are on your radar for the coming draft?

We all know the different needs of this team. We need a corner. We need a receiver. We need a pass rusher. We need a nose tackle. We need. We need. We need….

What don’t we need?!

There was a lot of talent on display the last few days in Indianapolis though and there were a number of names that stood out.

One player that caught my eye was Louis Nix. Not because of his ridiculous athleticism, but because of his hilarious attempt at the broad jump:

I love Nix and what he could bring to the team, but waiting for him to fall to us at 25 is a huge risk. If we want a nose tackle, we would have to go and get one. We can’t play the waiting game.

Calvin Pryor’s numbers in the 40 wasn’t that impressive. Should be interesting to see if he is available down at the bottom. I doubt we go in that direction though. We never select a safety.

I still love Jason Verrett and Justin Gilbert in the secondary. Gilbert stood out at the combine and will likely be untouchable from our spot in the draft.
