NFL Combine Open Thread: Big 10 Players/Other Highlights

And the overhyped, star making event known as the NFL Combine has begun. I will be posting statistics and stories from around the web about Big 10 players who are part of this combine.

My favorite combine story involves Deion Sanders, who had a reputation for incredible speed at Florida State. Legend goes that he ran a 3.9 40 time during his first year there. Anyway, everyone at the combine is crowded around watching him run the 40. Sanders flies out of the blocks quick and crosses the finish line with arms stretched wide, screaming "Pay Me!"
