The NFL's combine is going on this weekend. I don't read many NFL
news websites or draft trackers, and other than former college greats
participating, am a little disinterested.
That said, the big stories revolved around Maurice Clarett and Mike Williams. In short, Maurice apparently interviewed well but ran a lackluster 40 time. Mike Williams ran about what he was expected. And thus, there really wasn't much news.
But the combine is one of the end stops in a college player's journey, from high school recruit to signee to enrollee to student-athlete on the team to draft workouts, all-star games, camps, and then the actual draft. In that sense, the combine is definitely worth discussing on here.
