NFL Combine 2011: Future NFL Stars On Display In Indianapolis

The 2011 NFL Combine got underway yesterday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, and it features some of the best prospects in the upcoming NFL Draft. Check out this stream at SB Nation for all the breaking news and updates from Indy, but I'll give you a little snippet below.

The arrival times for each group are staggered so NFL draft junkies have nearly a full week of 40-yard dash times, vertical jumps and quarterback heights to measure.

Here's a break down of the schedule:

Day one: The players will be traveling to Indianapolis and going through registration once they arrive. There will be some medical things on that first day -- pre-workout exams and x-rays -- before they move into orientation explaining what the week is all about. After that there will be interviews with various NFL teams who want to speak with that particular player.

Day two: There will be physical measurements of the players, some exams, media time, psych tests and then more interviews with NFL teams.

Day three: The third day includes a meeting with the NFLPA, which should be somewhat interesting because there were rumors that the union was thinking about boycotting the Combine. Obviously that's not the case now but that will be something that's raised during the media session. After that, there will be more interviews with NFL teams.

Day four: There wil be workouts on this day -- timing, stations and skill drills -- and then players will prepare to depart Indy.

So the players who got to Indy yesterday are undergoing the "Day Two" phase of that plan today. That includes quarterbacks. Keep checking back on this stream for all the latest on prospects that have been tied to the Texans.
