I'm a little disappointed in the NFL Scouting Combine this time around, I have to admit. one of my favorite aspects of the combine is that I usually find a new player or two that I can consider my draft crush. Because, for some reason, I love having a draft crush that may or may not end up disappointing me by not ending up with the San Francisco 49ers.
However, I was left a little underwhelmed by many of the positions this year. Of course, one of the most stacked positions in the draft this year, the safety position, isn't up until Tuesday night, but you know. I would be absolutely shocked if the 49ers didn't draft a safety in one of the first two rounds this year.
I think they'd be losing out big time. At any rate, let's get to your links for the day.
