Some more action today as QB, RB, and WR checked in. They were weighed-in and spent most of the day in interviews. OL and TE hit the weight room, were subjected to psychological testing, and had more interviews. On to the notes....

Don't miss day 2 notes from Greg Davis and find out which receiver claims he'll run his forty in the '4.1 range'.

Vikings head coach Brad Childress was quoted saying the Vikings were interested in Brady Quinn and will spend time interviewing him during the combine.

The Patriots could target running backs in the draft now that Corey Dillon is likely to retire.

Rumors of the Packers drafting Marshawn Lynch could become reality. The Packers spent time with Lynch on both Thursday and Friday. Also, Lynch said the following during interviews, “Everybody tells me, ‘Get ready to pack your ear muffs, your gloves and a big coat. You’re going to Green Bay.’”

Bush won't workout during the combine. His leg still isn't 100% and he hopes to be ready to workout during Louisville's pro day. He joins a growing list of players skipping portions of the drills, including: Troy Smith, Dwayne Jarrett, Tony Hunt, JaMarcus Russell, Joe Staley, Ted Ginn Jr, and Brady Quinn.

Gil Brandt returns with his day 2 quick hits. He runs down some player measurements and reports on the punters and kickers workout. Danny Sepulveda was the best punter, averaging 44.58 on eight kicks. Nick Folk of Arizona was the best kicker converting on 13 of 16 field goals.

Don Banks day two notes include news on quarterbacks JaMarcus Russell and Troy Smith. In the article Mike Mayock is quoted, saying of Russell - "He's got the most spectacular physical skill set of any college quarterback I've ever seen.'' Russell weighed in at 6'5", 265 pounds. Smith weighed in at 6', 225 pounds and scouts are predicting he'll go late second or early third.
