You may try to fill that with the AAF this year, but most fans start to tune back in during some of the pre-draft activities. We have already had the Senior Bowl, but now the ever-important NFL Combine has arrived. This week represents the biggest chance for the NFL Draft’s best prospects to make an impression on all 32 teams. Every franchise is well represented with coaches and front office members staying busy by watching the various drills and interviewing players during the week. It is also a chance for teams to get exact measurements (i.e. height and weight), which could have been exaggerated during their NCAA days or show who is taking their workouts less seriously than others.Of course, the Combine takes place over several days with different groups participating on certain days. If you have a certain group you want to watch, here is the schedule along with the drills that will be run that day:Tuesday, February 26thRunning backs, offensive linemen, special teams and kickers- arrive and check in at Indianapolis, medical pre-exam, x-rays, orientation and interviewsWednesday, February 27thQuarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends- arrive and check in at Indianapolis, medical pre-exam, x-rays, orientation and interviewsRunning backs, offensive linemen, special teams and kickers- Medical examinations, measurements Geno Atkins Jersey , overflow testing and interviewsHead coaches an general managers have press conferencesThursday, February 28thDefensive linemen and linebacker- arrive and check in at Indianapolis, medical pre-exam, x-rays, orientation and interviewsQuarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends- Medical examinations, measurements, overflow testing and interviewsRunning backs, offensive linemen, special teams and kickers- Psychological testing, NFLPA meeting, bench press, media, special teams and kickers workoutHead coaches and general managers have press conferences Friday, March 1st 9:00 AM EST: running backs and offensive linemen- participate in on-field drills (NFL Network)Defensive backs- arrive and check in at Indianapolis, medical pre-exam, x-rays, orientation and interviewsQuarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends- Psychological testing, NFLPA meeting, bench press, media Michael Jordan Jersey 2019 , special teams and kickers workoutDefensive linemen and linebacker- Medical examinations, measurements, overflow testing and interviewsSaturday, March 2nd (Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends)10:00 AM EST: quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends- participate in on-field drills (NFL Network)Defensive linemen and linebacker- Psychological testing, NFLPA meeting, bench press, media, special teams and kickers workoutDefensive backs- Medical examinations, measurements, overflow testing and interviewsSunday, March 3rd (Defensive linemen and linebackers)9:00 AM EST: defensive linemen and linebacker- participate in on-field drills (NFL Network)Defensive backs- Psychological testing, NFLPA meeting, bench press, media, special teams and kickers workoutMonday, March 4th (Defensive backs)10:00 AM EST: defensive backs- participate in on-field drills (NFL Network)Positional drillsAll positions40-Yard DashBench PressVertical JumpBroad JumpThree-Cone Drill20-Yard Shuttle Running backsOff-tackle ReactionChange of Direction (COD) Pitch DrillBlast ReadFind the Ball DrillPass RoutesOffensive linemenCOD Wave DrillLong PullShort Pull PowerPass Pro MirrorPass Pro Rush L & RDrop and Flip DrillQuarterbacksPocket Movement3-5-5-7 Step Drops/Throws7 Step Roll Out, Right and LeftThrow Routes to ReceiversWide receivers and tight endsSideline Tap-Tap DrillOver Shoulder Catch DrillMultiple Catch/Gauntlet DrillPass RoutesBlock Explosion (tight ends)Defensive line and pass rushersPunch, Hand, Shiver DrillBody Control Drill4-Bag COD DrillPass Rush L & RFront Wave Drill and Lateral ReactionLinebackers4-Bag Agility DrillWave Drill90 Degree Catch DrillPass Rush L & RBack PedalBack Pedal and ReactDefensive backsReceiving Line DrillBack Pedal, Turn and Catch“W” DrillBack Pedal Michael Jordan Jersey Womens , Weave, 90 Degree and CatchBack Pedal and Transition 45 Degree ReactionClose and Speed Turn DrillBack Pedal, Break Forward, Speed Turn and Catch After a couple of weeks of stalled out news, many tidbits came in waves this week. Cincinnati officially has their new head coach and they also announced a few hires at the assistant ranks. So, needless to say, we had a lot to talk about this week on The Orange and Black Insider. One of the particular topics of interest was in Duke Tobin’s attachment to Taylor, and their destinies being intertwined. Aside from eschewing the giving of the mantle of a “general manager” title, owner Mike Brown recently noted that Tobin was the guy who was instrumental in rounding up candidates, conducting interviews and ultimately found Taylor. Per Bengals.com:This says a couple of things: first, the stubborn owner still won’t call someone else aside from himself “General Manager”. Still, common perception is that he holds that position, even though it doesn’t say it on his business card.But, one has to ask not only just how well of a job Tobin has done. If Dehner, Jr.’s statement holds water (which it should, given majority opinion on the issue), then three of those last five years have been failures, netting a 19-28-1 record from 2016-2018. We could also throw the abject failure of the 2015 draft class at his feet. With the Taylor hire, though, Tobin is really putting his name on things. And, if it doesn’t work out, even the slow-moving Bengals could make another significant change at “G.M.”.“Yeah—he’s been here for so long because they wanted to keep the (Marvin) Lewis group intact—he came along with Lewis Youth Michael Jordan Jersey ,” OBI co-host John Sheeran said about Tobin’s job security resting on the Taylor hire. “You talk about job security in general with the Bengals and with those guys in the front office you never really question that. But, if this was entirely or a majority part of a Duke Tobin move, then he was the reason Zac Taylor was so well-liked in interviews.”“Essentially Duke Tobin does have more power—we’ve kind of known this for the past couple of years,” Sheeran continued. “He had more influence in ‘The War Room’ and influence in bringing in and retaining guys in the offseason in general. But now, this is first opportunity to really reset the franchise and bring in a new voice and leadership...I think they (Brown and the Blackburns) have a great trust and cohesion with Tobin in similar values and approach.”We both agreed that the Bengals have a triumvirate brain trust in Tobin, as well as Katie and Troy Blackburn, but Brown still has his say to be sure. But, Tobin has definitely hitched his wagon to Taylor and if it ends up breeding a championship(s), he’ll be the unheralded genius. It will also show the effects of Marvin Lewis on the club these past few years and point to Tobin’s hands being potentially tied a bit. While all indications were that the two worked well together, player development when it came to coaching up some youngsters hasn’t bared a ton of fruit lately. But, if the Taylor era goes the other way, Tobin may find himself looking for a new job elsewhere. Also on this week’s episode:Zac Taylor was officially announced as the team’s head coach this week.We give our thoughts on the staff members either rumored to be brought in or those who have already been signed. How hypocritical is Taylor being with the on-boarding of Jim Turner?Jeremy Hill threw some serious shade at Bengals fans this week after being part of the Patriots’ parade festivities, while Dre Kirkpatrick shot back. Does Hill even deserve to talk smack on Cincinnati?Is a proven defensive coordinator as important for the team’s future success as the Taylor hire?Did the poor performance by Jared Goff tarnish the arrival of Taylor in The Queen City?This and much more!
