The 2011 NFL Scouting Combine is scheduled to take place from February 23rd to March 1st. The event will be televised on the NFL Network once again this year, so that all of us armchair quarterbacks and coaches can see the professional prospects showcase their talents.
The combine has become quite the event now. Just like the NFL draft, it has grown over the last decade as football fans can’t seem to get enough information. It’s grown so dramatically that a players draft stock car rise, or fall, dramatically based on his performance.
While the idea of boycotting the NFL scouting combine later this month remains a long shot, at best, four sources said over the weekend that momentum for some type of protest is growing and is expected to be a point of discussion Monday during a conference call between NFLPA and the players agents.
Below are some names of college players that the Saints have been watching, scouted from last season, during the Senior Bowl and will continue to watch throughout the combine.
