NFL Combine 2012: Opening Schedule Begins With Interviews

The 2012 NFL Combine gets underway this morning with the first group of players checking in for the annual scouting spectacular. The first group consists of kickers, punters, special teamers, offensive linemen and tight ends. This first day of the Combine is actually relatively quiet for the prospects. The first group checks in goes through a pre-exam and X-rays, gets an orientation and gets a chance for some team interviews. The measurements and psychological testing begin on Thursday and the first real workouts are actually not until Saturday.

The interviews can still be of some value as they give us an idea of who the 49ers might be interested in to a certain extent. The 49ers will interview numerous players at the Combine, at Pro Days and in other scenarios, so we can only take so much from it. Nonetheless, I'll try and keep an eye on who the 49ers are chatting with throughout the Combine.

The 49ers will have plenty of folks in attendance with Coach Harbaugh likely joining Trent Baalke at the annual festivities. I would imagine Coach Harbaugh would like to be a part of any interviews he can so he can really assess what some of these players bring to the table. Coach Harbaugh talks often about his "mighty men" and I would imagine interviews with players can help him get a better sense of potential prospects.

The physical stuff will get going later in the week, but in the meantime, I've posted some Combine-related prop bets courtesy of Bovada. NFL Network will be on hand throughout the coming week, so feel free to use this thread to post any rumors, news or other discussion on Total Access at the NFL Combine.
