NFL Draft 2010 Season Begins: Covering the Combine…

Jersey Al Bracco@JerseyAlGBPSenior Analyst IFebruary 25, 2010

As the 2010 NFL combine approaches, rabid fans of the NFL will be reading, listening and looking for details about their favorite prospects for their favorite teams.

To make life a little easier, I’ve identified some of the best places to get useful combine information.

First, the official web site for the NFL combine can be found at this location . Here you can view the list of invited players and the full schedule .

Thanks to a tweet from my friend Aaron Nagler over at CheeseheadTV , I had tons of fun watching these videos by Mike Mayock .  He personally takes you through every workout drill and position drill, explaining the purpose of each drill, what the scouts look for and what would be considered an excellent performance.

Of note to Packers fans, in the shuttle run, Mayock says 4.2 seconds is an excellent time for a defensive back. He then goes on to praise Clay Matthews, who ran a 4.18 during his combine workout.

Also, Colin Cowherd of ESPN decided to try his hand at some of the Combine workouts.

Speaking of the aforementioned Aaron Nagler, he scored a major victory for bloggers everywhere, getting credentialed to the NFL combine. I’m sure he will be tweeting up a storm, so if you are on twitter, be sure to follow Aaron . If you’re not on twitter, you can follow his commentary anyway by going to the Packers Lounge main page and watching the Packers Lounge Daily Feed.

In addition, Cheeseheadtv and Brian Carriveau of Railbird Central , will be hosting a live blog on Friday or Saturday. Be sure to check their websites this week for more information.

Another excellent blogger to follow would be Michael Schottey, of DraftTek.comMlive.com and BleacherReport.com . He will also be at the combine and tweeting frequent updates.  If you are on twitter, be sure to follow Schottey . If not, you will be able to see his updates on DraftTek.com .

Combine workouts will be televised by the NFL Network , beginning Saturday Feb 27 at 9:00 a.m. EST. If you don’t subscribe to NFL network, you can watch combine workouts on  NFL Live .

So there you have some great options for keeping up with the NFL Combine. You have no excuse for not being informed. That is, of course, unless you actually have a life (or meaningful stuff to do).  Enjoy!
