Workouts don't start until Saturday, but the prospects are weighing in today. Some reports are starting to trickle out this morning.

I'm told Alabama OT DJ Fluker checked in at 339 lbs today. He was 355 at the Sr Bowl. #NFLCombine

Big fan of Fluker. If we somehow drafted him we would have the heaviest OLine in the league. Fluker, Nicks, Penn and Joseph Shocked

Alabama's Dee Milliner, projected to be the top cornerback in this draft and a top-fivey selection, will undergo surgery on a torn labrum in his right shoulder after this week's scouting combine, according to league sources.

However, even with the injury, Milliner will do every workout drill at the combine except for the bench press and there is optimism about his availability for training camp.

"The doctors have informed us that he will be 100 percent and fully recovered in time for training camp in July," said Tony Fleming, one of Milliner's reps with Impact Sports. "We will be providing all NFL clubs information prior to surgery and updates close to the draft

Good to see that Milliner is still competing in drills. Can't question his toughness.

San Diego St TE Gavin Escobar 6'5 7/8 254 lbs. 33 5/8 inch arms.

If he can run in the high 4.6s those are Rob Gronkowski type measurables. Escobar isn't much of a blocker right now, but he is great down the seam. He would be a great fit in our offense.

Not sure how Flucker fits into our draft board with all our other need but he would be a nasty addition to our line Shocked

The combine is overrated. It won't make or break a prospect. The film of what's done on the field triumphs anything done in spandex and not in live action.

[EDITED BY MODERATOR].

I don't find this concerning. Well interview a lot of prospects.

Let's not go there...

Let's put the Te'o thing to rest, at least THAT debate.

In terms of actual Te'o discussion, this combine is actually big for him. I agree with R&P that the combine is massively overblown, but scouts all question Teo's athletic ability and speed. If he can run fast and look quick in drills, it can put a lot of that to rest.

Love this kid. His hands just engulf the football. Really like him. You can teach blocking.

I know he's a very good run blocker, but isn't his pass protection a bit iffy!?!
I wouldn't want him...especially in today's NFL.

I'm surprised you believe the scouts question Te'o's athletic ability and speed, at least anymore than anyone else's? If that is the case, I believe he'll lay those doubts to rest...

I wouldn't call his pass pro iffy, but it is inconsistent. I have seen him dominate and I have also seen him get burned.

I think that his Stretch Armstrong arms and his athleticism give him a huge advantage. With some coaching he can be a great RT, IMO.

I'm looking to see Xavier Rhodes in drills and how quickly and fluid his hips are and how he turns in runs.

That doesn't seem to be much of question on tape, for a guy his size he's pretty fluid. I will be interested in his 40 though, want to see his long speed.
