Been watching him, being from MSU and all ... he ran behind Le'Veon Bell (PIT) and now I'm wondering if he'll have similar success ... scratching my head at the number of players MSU's been sending to the NFL lately ... it never used to be like that.

Laughing at the 'Tony Mandarich' comments ... it's always a toss-up between Mandarich & Brian Bosworth when I think about "biggest draft busts", ... Mandrich was a Spartan, .

Would he touch a players like Green-Beckham?,maybe the most talentes receiver in the draft if he is there in rounds 2/3.
I was hoping it was DeAnthony Thomas last year, Beckham has 1st round talent but has decision making skills of an UDFA so it should be interesting to see where he is drafted this year. I wouldn't mind the Saints trading up in the 2nd to get him just don't think he'll be there

Re: Welcome To The Combine

Some of the best sights and sounds Sunday at the 2015 NFL Combine - CBSSports.com

Gotta tell ya - really love the guy (Ryan) and know the media is just trying to stir the pot, but some of those pics are embarrassing...

JaBustus Russell is easily the biggest bust of all time. No one else is close.

No and here's why: only the Raiders (Al Davis) were dumb enough to judge him off of that Sugar Bowl victory against an overrated Norte Dame team (when aren't they) and his combine/pro day. IIRC he wasn't all that great at LSU besides that game and the Raiders were so desperate for a quarterback that they Raidered up the draft by passing on Calvin Johnson to fill a need instead of taking the best player available in the draft. I could see why Lane Kiffen quit but he shouldn't of taken that job to begin with because at the end of the day you were Davis' puppet. Even Gruden got frustrated with Davis and the Raiders were winning under Gruden (**** you tuck rule).

So the Raiders got what they were suppose to get, a quarterback that was hyped by the media due to one game and a couple workouts. Ryan Leaf actually had a great final year at WSU, he lead them to the Rose Bowl with little talent around him so I could see where scouts would think he would make a good/great NFL quarterback.

To me a bust is someone that performs below expectations not someone that meets expectations

I think a lot of Rob's coverage is a by product of his brother. Just because Rex is a loud, crash person the media tries to portray Rob in the same light. Yes Rob has his moments but not nearly as many as Rex
