I'll keep this thread updated as the day rolls on...

Roy Manning / LB / Michigan

- One Wolverine not invited to Indianapolis but is still generating some buzz is Roy Manning. Manning has been training in preparation for the pro day and is weighing in at 257, and has run as low as 4.53 in the forty. Scouts in Indianapolis have been talking about him and the Lions are among the teams that have shown interest.

David Pollack / DE / Georgia

- Pollack ran a 4.69 on first run. Pollack looked good in both DL and LB drills while Jonathan Welsh and Ryan Riddle looked good in LB drills.

Marcus Spears / DE / LSU

-Had his right knee scoped on February 17. LSU has two pro-days march 9 and March 17 and it is unclear if he will be ready for the March 17 date and may have to schedule a private workout in April.

Justin Tuck / DE / Notre Dame

- Will not participate in drills --- right knee ACL from 2003

Mike Patterson / DT / USC

- Left hip flexor strain

Bill Swancutt / DT / Oregon State

- Called a high motor guy
- Turned heads at the Senior Bowl after being named Defensive MVP
- Worked out at Athletes Performance
- Said he worked out roughly five hours a day
- Would love to go to Seattle but happy to play anywhere

Five defensive linemen will not be working out at the NFL Combine, three of those for medical reasons.
Chris Canty (leg)
Trent Cole (pneumonia)
Shaun Cody (tight back)
Dan Cody ( Opted not to )
Shawne Merriman ( Opted not to )

Luis Castillo / DT / Northwestern

- Big man Castillo turned in a time better than a 4.8 which will steady his draft position.

Tampa Bay offensive assistant coach Kyle Shanahan was arrested over the weekend over an incident outside the Have a Nice Day Café on South Meridian Street.

According to reports the son of Denver coach Mike Shanahan, was observed at approximately 2:07 a.m. being escorted out of the bar where "he was loud, belligerent and causing a scene, drawing attention to himself."

Richie Incognitos / OC / X-Nebraska

- MRI on Richie Incognitos knee has come back as negative. Many NFL scouts feel he may not be prepared for his April 6 Pro-Day in Tempe, Arizona. More on this story will come this week.

Heath Miller / TE / Virginia

- TE Heath Miller did not work out because he is recovering from a sports hernia


Alex Smith / TE / Stanford

- TE Alex Smith did not run because of left knee bruise but did participate in pass catching drills and looked "average" according to some scouts.

Someone in Indianapolis did not give a flip over just who Kyle Shanahan was,
and that was something his pampered azz was not used to :D

LMAO, nicely done, Rat Jr.

It was in Indy, you KNOW they were teasing him about his pops getting blown out in the playoffs. Kyle had to get rowdy on those patrons at the Have A Nice Day Cafe. Sheesh, what a name for a bar.

Shaun Cody / DT / USC

- Happy with bench press results

- Will run forty on Pro Day

- Says he has the versatility to play 3-4 and 4-3

- Happy to meet coaches and get the experience of the combines even if he did not work out


Demarcus Ware / OLB / Troy State

- Scouts have told him he will go sometime on the first day

- Believes he has helped himself by meeting with coaches and scouts

- Can play in the 3-4 or 4-3 and most interest is seeing him at linebacker rather than defensive end


Brian Billick / HC / Baltimore Ravens

- Said he would not come to the combines if it was not for the interviews

- Does not want to bump guys up based on what they do without pads on but says it is sometimes inevitable that players move up the draft board

-Failed to mention he was carrying a big notebook around and inside the RCA Dome on Monday to watch the defensive line workout

Mike Williams
-Former University of Southern California wide receiver Mike Williams told a source close to scout.com Sunday evening that the reason why he decided to run on Sunday was because he thought after having such good interviews with NFL teams over the weekend, he didn't want to disappoint any of them by not running. He added that he made the decision to run on his own.

Williams didn't seem too concerned about his slightly disappointing 40-times and said he will be more than ready to run much better in early March during his private workout.
