-------------------------------------------------

Here are the linebackers that disappointed during the morning workouts:

Cameron Vaughn/Louisiana State

Dale Robinson/Arizona State

-------------------------------------------------

Brian Iwuh/Colorado was slated to work out with the linebackers today, but is still suffering from a hamstring injury he sustained at the Senior Bowl.

-------------------------------------------------

Jon Alston/Stanford impressed scouts with great interviews at the combine.

-------------------------------------------------

Terna Nande/Miami (Oh) completed 41 bench press repetitions despite having 5 taken away from him for not locking his elbows.

Scouts thought it was a good idea that Bobby Carpenter/Ohio State skipped today's workout as he is still rehabbing a broken bone in his foot.

-------------------------------------------------

Many have said that Jason Allen/CB/Tennessee has been very apprehensive about making a switch to safety during his interviews. His preference is to be used as a cornerback.

-------------------------------------------------

We reported from the Senior Bowl that teams were concerned about the surly nature of Vanderbilt/QB/Jay Cutler. Now comes word his interviews here have been mediocre at best. The problem is Cutler has come across as very vague when asked direct questions.

A former quarterback turned head coach in the NFL said any team who draft's Cutler better be prepared for their franchise quarterback to throw 30 picks a year.

-------------------------------------------------

Hofstra/WR/Marques Colston ran well during his 40 but turned scouts off even before he took the field at the RCA Dome. During interviews, the 6-foot-4 Colston gave coaches the impression he wanted nothing to do with a move to the H-back or tight end position.

-------------------------------------------------

Scouts were surprised Joshua Tinch was not given an invite to the combine, especially after his terrific senior campaign. Tinch is another big-bodied receiver teams are projecting to H-back.

-------------------------------------------------

Did Greg Lee/WR/Pittsburgh make a mistake declaring for the draft after a poor junior campaign? In a nutshell, yes. Some teams do not even have Lee on their draft boards.

-------------------------------------------------

How fundamentally bad did Omar Jacobs/QB/Bowling Green look on Sunday? One NFL general manager said in passing that Jacobs is a "sandlot player."

-------------------------------------------------

Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo quickly popped his head into the RCA Dome Sunday morning to watch the running backs time in the 40, then quickly left. One running back that was the object of his desire was Jerious Norwood/Mississippi State, who is projected to receiver by many squads.

-------------------------------------------------

How impressive was Vernon Davis/TE/Maryland the previous two days? Scouts are now referring to him as a "rare" prospect.

-------------------------------------------------

The St. Louis Rams are incredibly impressed with the tight end crop in this year's draft. They will definitely select one in April. They would love to add Vernon Davis to their roster but that is unlikely. Expect them to take a long look at Joe Klopfenstein in round 2.

-------------------------------------------------

Scouts feel that Jason Allen/DB/Tennessee is flying under the radar screen. Had an injury not ended his season in October, scouts felt Allen was playing good enough to be a top-20 selection.

-------------------------------------------------

The feeling in Indianapolis is Devin Hester's ultimate pro position will be wide receiver, though some teams still see him as a fine cornerback/kick returner prospect.

-------------------------------------------------

Add John McCargo/North Carolina State to the list of players that have turned in impressive interviews.

-------------------------------------------------

The word going around is that sources from the Syracuse football program have told NFL people that James Wyche is not a trustworthy person.

-------------------------------------------------

Scouts were a little more then ticked off that Dominique Byrd/TE/USC did not work out at the combine considering he told teams during interviews he would complete the entire workout here.
