Dwyer Completes Three Team Interviews

Georgia Tech's Jonathan Dwyer should be the first or second running back selected in this year's draft, and NFL teams are already lining up to talk with him in Indianapolis at the Combine. Late Friday night, Dwyer told Scout.com's Ed Thompson who he met with during his first three formal interviews.

Late Friday night, Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer told Scout.com that he had just completed his first three formal team interviews at the NFL Combine.

The hard-charging and elusive runner met with the St. Louis Rams, the San Diego Chargers, and the Denver Broncos.

While all three meetings went very well, Dwyer said that he had a very upbeat meeting with head coach Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith. They discussed the Chargers' tenuous situation at the running back position with the release of LaDainian Tomlinson and the pending free agency of Darren Sproles.

Dwyer also spent some time talking with the running backs coach from the Miami Dolphins Friday night. He has at least 12 interviews scheduled for Saturday night.

The Georgia Tech star was also excited about his measurements at the Combine. "My height was about 5-foot-11 and a half, and my weight was 229," he said. "I was happy with that weight. It showed that I had lost some weight and toned my body up--and showed that I mean business."

Check back on Sunday for the first installment of Jonathan Dwyer's Combine Diary, a Scout.com/FOXSports.com exclusive, where he takes you behind the scenes of the Combine and shares his daily experience in Indianapolis.
