The 2009 Scouting Combine is the annual job fair for prospective new NFL players. For six days at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, prospects are put through a series of drills, tests, and interviews with more than 600 NFL personnel – including head coaches, general managers, and scouts.
And just like every year, BearReport.com is where you need to be for the news and notes surrounding the Monsters of the Midway.
We'll have the event covered from every angle, directly from the media room. Not only will Bear Report publisher John Crist – since he's a member of the Professional Football Writers of America – have an opportunity to watch one of the groups of quarterbacks and receivers work out, but subscribers will have the chance to interact with him courtesy of a continually-running CoverItLive.com chat session. You'll be able to get immediate feedback after players speak at the podium, instant analysis on important numbers like 40-yard dash times and bench-press reps, and real-time updates on any rumors regarding your Chicago Bears.
Best of all, JC will answer questions directly from you throughout his four-day stay in Indy – and that's a feature you're just not going to get from your local newspaper or at any national Web site.
Be sure to visit BearReport.com frequently from Thursday through Sunday for all the latest on what has become one of the NFL's biggest weekends of the year. Head coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jerry Angelo will address the media some time Saturday, so we'll be sure to have all the quotes of note as soon as they become available. It's just another step to see who will be the newest Midway Monsters for the 2009 season.
