INDIANAPOLIS – Sunday brought those in the front seven onto the field for on-the-field workouts at the NFL Combine.
With today's workouts having concluded, Monday will be the final day of the 2015 Combine with defensive backs taking the field.
One of the highlights from Sunday was local prospect Randy Gregory reaffirming why many mock drafts have him in the top 10.
Gregory, who attended Hamilton Southeastern, showed off his elite athleticism on Sunday. The deep class of edge rushers has Gregory near the top of that list. He weighed in at 235 pounds earlier this week, a number that might hinder him from being a complete product early in his NFL career. There have been a few mock drafts slotting Gregory to the Jaguars at the No. 3 overall spot.
With the Combine nearing a close, here is the yearly reminder of where this week falls in the draft evaluation process. It backs up what Ryan Grigson said earlier in the week. The Colts already have their draft board virtually set with little tweaking occurring after this week. Next up in the draft process comes with spring pro days, individual workouts and eventually bringing in prospects to your facility.
If you watch the coverage on NFL Network, you see ample hands-on coaching/instructing from staff members around the league. Fitzgerald is the Colts linebackers coach and has been a veteran at the Combine. Having Fitzgerald out there with every linebacker prospect is certainly beneficial for the Colts in trying to further evaluate a group that could definitely be a selected position come draft time.
Mother Nature did not showcase Indy in her finest environment this week. But even with a week like this of frigid temperatures, the city showed why they can (and continually) hold an event like this. The presence of IU Health so close to the rest of the Combine operation might be Indy's strongest draw in keeping the event for years to come.
