2014 NFL Combine Open Thread II: The Meat Market Is Open On Weekends

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

"Boy for sale! Boy for sale!" The NFL Scouting Combine continues and, thus, Battle Red Blog continues its coverage of it. Follow the day's events here. Share Tweets, links and opinions down in the Comments.

Here's what's on the docket for today, folks.

Saturday, Feb. 22
• OL/TE on-field workout (timing, stations, skill drills)
• QB/WR/RB psychological testing, bench press, interviews
• DL/LB measurements, medical exams, media, interviews
• DB medical pre-exam and X-rays, orientation, interviews

It's always fun to see the big guys scramble and shuffle through their various tasks, but their footwork skills are absolutely essential to the success of their careers.

We'll also get closely acquainted with the body measurements of one Jadeveon Clowney. However, we won't get to see him perform the drills until tomorrow. If you read the link that I posted yesterday, you'd know that with physical phenoms like Clowney, "notable times, repetitions, or numbers should be expected, not counted again as an extra positive. It is putting a score to that athletic upside, not adding to the evaluation. It was already there."

So while he'll likely put up an impressive showing, it won't give scouts more than what they already knew. The true test for the South Carolina product will be the interviews; he'll be eager to squash concerns any over his work ethic and commitment.

- If you didn't catch Bill O'Brien's press conference yesterday, Deepi Sidhu has a nice breakdown of what we learned.

- Head over to Big Cat Country and check out their sortable tables with measurements for quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers.

That should be all you need to know for now. Enjoy the day and have at it in the Comments.
