Quarterback Cam Newton and defensive tackle Nick Fairley haven't done any of the drills yet, obviously content with their times in Indianapolis. Position drills are this afternoon, which I'm sure both will be participating in.
Here are a few early notes:
- Lots of big NFL names out here today. I've seen the following coaches: Carolina's Ron Rivera, Den Denver's John Fox, Cincinnati's Marvin Lewis, Arizona's Ken Whisenhunt and Cleveland's Pat Shurmur. Those teams pick 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th, respectively.
- Also, Denver executive vice president of football operations John Elway is here. For photographic evidence, look above.
- Fastest 40 time goes to Demond Washington, who ran it in 4.30 seconds. I believe Terrell Zachery was second at 4.40.
- Best vertical jump is a tie between Darvin Adams and Gabe McKenzie at 35 inches. Not surprised by the former, kind of surprised by the latter.
- I'm not a scout and don't pretend to be, but it seems like defensive tackle Zach Clayton is having a pretty good day. Ran a 4.68, was second in the broad jump at 10 feet even and had a good vertical jump (the number I don't have right now).
- Craig Stevens had the best broad jump at 10 feet, 2 inches.
- Don't have any other official times and measurements yet, but when I do, I'll get them up on the blog.
- Also, the bench press is being done in the visitors locker room and only can be attended by NFL personnel and "select media." Guess who that includes? Not the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, I know that much.
