News and notes from the 2011 NFL Combine:
USC offensive tackle Tyron Smith is pulling out of the Combine. Our Mocking the Draft says it might not matter that much: Smith lost 22 pounds between his days as a Trojan and now, and that might have helped his draft stock as much as a complete and impressive Combine showing would have.
Stanford's Owen Marecic, the nation's best two-way player in 2010, won't be trying that trick in the NFL. He's at the Combine as a fullback, and also cut his signature long hair.
Rams scout Luke Driscoll's NFL Combine experience has reportedly included him urinating on a building and exposing himself to a female police officer. This does wonders for Super Bowl XLVI host Indianapolis' reputation as an exciting town, I'm sure.
