NFL Combine Thoughts

With the NFL Combine happening next week (February 22-28), I figured I would share some thoughts on the event.

Note: This post has very little to do with actual football and more to do with me making fun of people with ridiculous names. If you are expecting a serious Combine preview, check out another site.

-Arkansas WR Joe Adams' real name is Adam. Yup, Adam Adams. 

-Oklahoma State DE Anton Blatnick goes by the name Jamie. Huge name downgrade.

-Alabama LB Dont'a Hightower's real first name: Qualin. Gotta say if I was going to change my name, there's a 99.97% chance my new first name would have an apostrophe in it.

-Coolest lineages:
  1. Darius Hanks, WR, Alabama, son of Merton
           (Huge gap)
  2. Davin Meggett, RB, Maryland, son of Dave

-Coolest football names:
  1. Uchechukwu Igwenago, RB, UMass
  2. Markus Kuhn, DT, NC State (Kuuuuuuuuu-hhhhhhnnnn)
  3. Rokevious Watkins, OT, South Carolina)
    Note: Bryan Anger (Cal) is ineligble because he's a punter

-Coolest first names:
  1. Xiangdre (Reliford, TE, Florida State)
  2. Rond'trique (Brooks, CB, LSU)
  3. Vontaze (Burfict, LB, Arizona State)

-The Andre Smith player most likely to go insane at this year's combine:
  1. Cliff Harris, CB, Oregon
  2. Chris Owusu, WR, Stanford (those concussions gotta catch up at some point)
  3. Eddie Pleasant, S, Oregon Marvin McNutt, WR, Iowa

-Players most likely to sell their Combine gear:
  1(tie). Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
  1(tie). Devier Posey, WR, Ohio State
  1(tie), Dan Herron, RB, Ohio State

-I love the combine because of pictures like this every year:

Former Alabama DT Terrence Cody shows up to the 2010 NFL Combine in great shape
-I'm pulling for my boy Ryan Broyles to be healthy and have a great week. Would love for the Jets to get him. Dude catches everything. Also hoping Nebraska DL Jared Crick is back to near-full strength.
