The NFL Combine is upon us.
Time for the best college football players to evaluated, interviewed and prodded. Every movement, play, answer will be analyzed under a microscope until names start getting called on April 28th.
Stanford is well represented at this year’s combine, with quarterback Kevin Hogan, offensive linemen Joshua Garnett and Kyle Murphy, wide receiver Devon Cajuste, tight end Austin Hooper and linebacker Blake Martinez all participating.
Wednesday kicks off the events with exams and interviews for the offensive participants. It was a relatively quiet day, but here are some of the takeaways from day one:
If you’re familiar with the Cardinal, you’ve seen guard Joshua Garnett physically annihilate would-be tacklers while setting the lane for the likes of Christian McCaffrey.
On Wednesday, Garnett revealed he wants to block his opponents all the way down to their core
The best example I could find of Garnett shaking an opponent’s soul came against Washington this season.
It was reported offensive tackle Kyle Murphy may be limited in his workouts due to a hamstring injury. He said he may hold off on some of the workouts until Stanford’s Pro Day. He also mentioned Cleveland Browns tackle Joe Thomas as someone he tries to emulate on the field, and likes the Patriots’ approach to the game.
Stay tuned for more coverage as the week progresses. The on-field fun starts on Friday….
