    A sample Wonderlic test. Our future gridiron greats had to put up with team interviews and a 5-minute lightning round of questions like these:

    America's favorite Catfish victim is already getting put through the ringer by scouts. Will Irish eyes be smiling?

    http://irish.nbcsports.com/2013/02/18/all-nfl-eyes-will-be-on-teo-this-week/related/

    (NBCSports.com)No NFL prospect has had a more adventurous post-season run than Manti Te’o, who has seen his reputation take quite a hit both on and off the field, courtesy of his underwhelming performance against Alabama and the revelation of the hoax surrounding Te’o's long-distance girlfriend Lennay Kekua.

    While Te’o made the obligatory media rounds, talking to ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap and Katie Couric, he’ll know have a chance to tell NFL team’s his side of the story, making him one of two athletes with the most at stake at the combine...

    I am watching the Combine on the NFL network. I've never watched it before...very cool to watch. Some amazing athletes that you see in a completely different light than you do on the football field in games

    Also, Manti Te'o will have a press conference aired live during that time. He'll be fully clothed, for those asking.

    "open up those hips!"

    What does that even mean, when the drill coaches bark that?!?

    http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/Manti-Teo-finally-gets-chance-to-focus-on-football-022513

    FoxSportsSome have wondered if the embarrassing story was a distraction leading into the national championship game, in which Te'o and his Notre Dame teammates played poorly in a blowout loss to Alabama.

    The linebacker said Saturday the hoax had no impact on that game. And he insists it has not affected his preparation for the combine, either.

    But instead of putting those concerns to rest with a good showing Monday, Te'o fell short of his goals again — and not just in the 40.

    Te'o participated in five of the seven drills, opting out of the bench press and 60-yard shuttle, and did not finish ranked among the top five at his position in any of them.

    His vertical jump was 33 inches, far below Southern Mississippi's Jamie Collins' positional best of 41 1/2. Te'o jumped 113 inches in the broad jump. He finished the three-cone drill in 7.13 seconds, well off the pace set by Missouri's Zaviar Gooden (6.71). Te'o completed the 20-yard shuttle in 4.27 seconds, again behind Gooden's 4.18.

    After the workouts, which were closed to the media, Te'o told NFL Network that he could have done better — and that he will at next month's Pro Day at Notre Dame.

    Dallas Morning NewsThere weren't many players whose draft stock depended on their performance at the NFL Combine more than SMU's Margus Hunt.

    The former Mustang DE has only been playing football for a few years and is still rough around the edges, but his size and raw athleticism have scouts drooling over his pro potential.

    Fortunately, Hunt didn't disappoint. The Estonian native checked in at a massive size of 6-foot-8, 277 pounds, and he ranked near the top of every workout among defensive linemen.

    Hunt's 38 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press tied for the best mark of any player at the entire combine, while his time of 4.6 seconds in the 40-yard dash ranked third among defensive linemen. The only linemen to top him were UConn's Trevardo Williams (4.57) and LSU's Barkevious Mingo (4.5icon_cool.gif, both of whom are 36 pounds lighter than Hunt and could wind up as linebackers in the NFL.

    Hunt also turned in a vertical jump of 34.5 inches (8th among DL) and a broad jump of 121 inches (7th among DL). The effort could be enough to boost Hunt, currently seen by many mock drafts as a 2nd or 3rd rounder, into the 1st round.

    He's gonna jump up to the first round, I think. I just hope he doesn't become the next Mike Mamula.
