2008 Midwest All-Combine Team

The first annual JCFootball.com / JC Grid-Wire Midwest Combine was held on May 10 at Harper College in Palatine, Illinois. There was plenty of speed on display despite temperatures hovering in the mid-fifties, and the bench press got a great workout. Having retired (and legendary) Harper coach John Eliasik on the 'staff' was a big-time bonus.

Some quick notes about the testing. Heights and weights were taken without shoes. Because the grass field was damp forties were run on the rubber track Most athletes (not all) wore track spikes which clearly made for some faster times. Short-shuttles were run first on the rubber track surface but we moved to the grass due to slippage. Although not a tight surface it was better than the rubber alternative. Athletes were given the choice of lifting 185 or 225 except linemen, linebackers, and tight ends who had to lift 225.

Now, with the background information out of the way, here is the All-Combine Team.
