    Here is a link to what is done at the combine.

    http://www.theredzone.org/2005/draft/co ... neinfo.asp

    One interesting thing is that each team is limited to 60 interviews. There are over 330 players at the combine. You know the list of interviewees gets leaked so teams know who is interviewing who.

    Some are potential undrafted free agents a team wants to persuade to sign after the draft. Some are 1st round picks expected to be drafted near where a team is drafting. The rest are interesting decisions.

    Here is the "official link"

    http://www.nflcombine.net/

    Players are divided into groups and each group is there for 4 days.
    Day1- arrive and have orientation and medical testing and interviews.
    Day2-Height, Weight and other measurements, Wonderlic, Weight reps. evening interviews
    Day3-Union meeting, Psycho testing, position tests, evening interviews
    Day4-40, shuttle runs, vertical jump broad jump etc. evening interviews.

    Some groups overlap.

    I just died.


    NO, but seriously...what do they do at the combine? Waste everyones time and overrate the 40 speed.

    example: Carroll is fast

    I just listed all of his strengths.

    NFL.com has some video of top prospects.

    A little different perspective than some of the draft sites.

    Who decides who gets invited? Does each team have so many requests or does it all fall on the league office.
