The combine got under way in earnest Saturday as the offensive linemen took to the field of Lucas Oil Stadium to be physically tested and then work through a battery of blocking drills. It was a very athletic group of blockers who pleased scouts as most exceeded expectations with their outstanding physical skills. Here's a look at the risers and sliders from the group.
Stanford tackle Jonathan Martin had been struggling with flu-like symptoms leading up to the combine and missed almost an entire week of training. After initially choosing not to work out at the combine, Martin reversed course and decided to participate in position drills after scouts challenged him during interviews. Martin did reasonably well, and the way he toughed the day out will sit well with scouts.
