INDIANAPOLIS -- Those who have been patient enough to wade through two days of interviews, measurements, and medical testing will be rewarded today as the offensive linemen and tight ends finally step on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium and begin the workout portion of the weekend.
That means 40-yard dashes, agility drills and more.
From a St. Louis Rams' perspective, there is not much to do today since coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead spoke to the media yesterday. We'll have more from those sessions, also.
As for what is worth watching in the workouts, Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson has had some questions about his ability to pass protect consistently. Not that he can't do it, but he simply didn't get the chance to do much of it for the Tigers. Keep an eye on the "mirror" drills, where the lineman lines up across from another player and is asked to mimic everything he does. It's not definitive, but gives an idea of what he can do in terms of keeping up with an opposing defensive lineman.
In the media room, expect today to create its share of buzz.
We're still waiting to talk to Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins, and Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans. If all three show up, they will join what figures to be a large media contingent surrounding Missouri defensive end Michael Sam and South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
The skill position players will take part in their workouts Sunday morning.
