Recommended Posts

It may be a little early, but I figured there will be a lot of posts coming up soon about the combine. So post all news about the Combine in here, and any thoughts on the players participating. To start it out, here are the offensive players that were invited to the Combine.

Quarterbacks -- 25 players invited

First players likely to be picked (listed alphabetically):

1. Brodie Croyle, Alabama (No. 3)

2. Jay Cutler, Vanderbilt (No. 4)

3. Omar Jacobs, Bowling Green (No. 9)

4. Matt Leinart, Southern Cal (No. 10)

5. Reggie McNeil, Texas A&M (No. 13)

6. Charlie Whitehurst, Clemson (No. 24)

7. Vince Young, Texas (No. 25)

Wild card: Kellen Clemens, Oregon (No. 2). Clemens broke his left ankle on Oct. 22 against Arizona, but he was having an outstanding season prior to the injury. Most likely, he will be a physically unable to perform (PUP) player to start the season, but he is worth a pick. Clemens could be good in the right system.

More names to know:

D.J. Shockley, Georgia (No. 20)

Eric Meyer, Eastern Wash. (No. 14)

Logan Mankins (first round -- NE), Michael Roos (second round -- TEN), Jammal Brown (first round -- NO), Khalif Barnes (second round -- JAC), Nick Kaczur (third round -- NE), Rob Petitti (sixth round -- DAL), Alex Barron (first round -- STL), and Dan Buenning (fourth round -- TB) were just some of the offensive linemen that started at least eight games and played well.

Wild card: Pat McQuistan, Weber State (No. 21). From a Division I-AA program, McQuistan is a guy with long arms, big hands and is very strong. He could be a surprise choice, much like Logan Mankins was last year for New England. But McQuistan won't go in the first round like Mankins did.
