Default Combine comment thread. Who's getting you excited?

I know that this is a week early, but the combine always gets my attention level super high. I check out our needs, and pretty much stay focused on all the players in those positions competing at the combine.

A few years back Colin Kaepernick blew me away , making all the throws, and just physically, as a QB who could also run. I hadn't heard of him before, but he sure put on a show at that years combine. He was the best QB in that combine, IMO. But we weren't looking for a QB, so I was just more surprised by learning about who he was.

So, anyways, this thread is a dual thread.

1.Who, in years past, turned you on, and then became notable in the NFL ?

2. Who, in this years combine is getting your attention, while the combine is unfolding?

I'm Jonesin' for the combine. I need my combine. I need. I need. I need.

Waiting for Freak to report.

Really looking forward to Mahomes and Evans.

Most excited to see the safeties and edge rushers. Especially some prospects without a lot of tape on them.

Safeties: Marcus Maye, John Johnson, Rayshawn Jenkins, Jordan Sterns, Obi Melifonwu, Justin Evans, and Money Hunter.

Edge: Charles Harris, Tarell Basham, Tanoh Kpassagnon, Trey Hendrickson, Daeshon Hall, Deatrich Wise Jr., Tyus Bowser, Carroll Phillips, Dylan Donahue, Chris Odom.

Nice. This is what I'm talking about. Guys that we may not know much about now, but who may stick out in a positive way during the combine, and have everybody saying. "Who is this guy?"

Some of my favorties for day two. Guys with just enough flaws that they should be available in rounds 2-4, but also enough talent that they could become good starters or even pro bowlers if they develop right.

I also like Melifonwu, but I think he'll end up going in the first round.

QB is prob not TT top priority but I'd like to see how these kids do. They know they got a lot to prove if they want to go in the top 10 so that'll be cool. Some of you are right to be excited about Patrick Mahomes; hear the kid will shine in the combine. Chargers should take a good look at Josh Dobbs for the later rounds!

DB's and Edge Rushers should be fun to watch as well obviously!

In our CMB mock draft, I got him in the 2d (for the Bills).

I really like him. Not at 7, though -- unless his Combine numbers are off the charts.
