On Feb. 21, I arrived in Indianapolis for the NFL scouting combine. At the baggage claim, there were three NFL scouts directing all of the arriving players where to go. One of the scouts, Evan Ardoin of the St. Louis Rams, I have gotten to know pretty well over the last year. Last year, I met him at the Missouri pro day. I saw him again and talked with him at length at the Texas vs. Nation All-Star Game. That talk was not much scouting but more of a friendly conversation, so seeing a familiar face as I stepped off the plane was comforting.
