Shaun Cody / DT / USC

- Happy with bench press results

- Will run forty on Pro Day

- Says he has the versatility to play 3-4 and 4-3

- Happy to meet coaches and get the experience of the combines even if he did not work out


Demarcus Ware / OLB / Troy State

- Scouts have told him he will go sometime on the first day

- Believes he has helped himself by meeting with coaches and scouts

- Can play in the 3-4 or 4-3 and most interest is seeing him at linebacker rather than defensive end


Brian Billick / HC / Baltimore Ravens

- Said he would not come to the combines if it was not for the interviews

- Does not want to bump guys up based on what they do without pads on but says it is sometimes inevitable that players move up the draft board

-Failed to mention he was carrying a big notebook around and inside the RCA Dome on Monday to watch the defensive line workout


Mike Williams 

-Former University of Southern California wide receiver Mike Williams told a source close to scout.com Sunday evening that the reason why he decided to run on Sunday was because he thought after having such good interviews with NFL teams over the weekend, he didn't want to disappoint any of them by not running. He added that he made the decision to run on his own.

Williams didn't seem too concerned about his slightly disappointing 40-times and said he will be more than ready to run much better in early March during his private workout.


Roy Manning / LB / Michigan

- One Wolverine not invited to Indianapolis but is still generating some buzz is Roy Manning. Manning has been training in preparation for the pro day and is weighing in at 257, and has run as low as 4.53 in the forty. Scouts in Indianapolis have been talking about him and the Lions are among the teams that have shown interest.
