Joe Is At The Combine

February 21st, 2013

An ESPN makeup artist plies her trade on an ESPN anchor type. Chris Mortensen and Bill Polian look on during a commercial break Thursday morning at the NFL Combine held at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Yes, Joe is at the NFL Combine in frosty Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium. It was a balmy 21 degrees when Joe left his hotel.

Though Joe and the rest of the credentialed media are not allowed to watch the combine drills live in the stadium (there are plenty of TVs turned to the NFL Network), the NFL has a parade of players, coaches and general managers come through all day the next four days for interviews. Joe will try to bring you interviews and nuggets of interest to Bucs fans.

FYI, cornerbacks are scheduled to make an appearance Sunday, and yes, Joe is going to concentrate on those guys for interviews.

Below is the NFL’s scheduled parade of players for the next four days.

Thursday: Offensive Linemen, Kickers, Punters, Long Snappers, Tight Ends.

Friday: Quarterbacks, Running Backs, Wide Receivers

Saturday: Defensive Linemen, Linebackers

Sunday: Defensive Backs

    It’s being reported that Dee Milliner will need Labrum surgery before the draft. This may not affect his 1st round grade, but might take him out of the top 10. Maybe a story here Sunday!

    Thanks. Will ask him. Appreciate the tip.

    Sports = Ruined by celebrity/hollywood entertainment influence.

    Lucky you Joe. Kickers and punters running and jumping should be some compelling entertainment for you today. Love to join you, but think I’ll take a nap instead.

    Try to get a word in with Rutgers Cornerback Logan Ryan…I would be interested to hear his opinion of Schiano, and about their relationship.

    As stated in the post, credentialed media is not allowed to watch the combine in the stadium. When it comes to kickers, et al, Joe is thankful.

    Manti Te’o. Ask around to see what the pros think about the odd situation and what he has to do to redeem himself. Did he lose his 1st round status?

  8. Joe Says:


    Gonna guess Te’o’s fake girlfriend questions will be off limits.
