Monday Roundup: More Combine Links

WR Dez Bryant sounds like the second coming of TO. Just a weird personality all the way around.

Lorenzo Alexander will be playing at OLB in the 3-4 package. I don't quite get how a 275 pound defensive tackle will be able to cover or be an explosive edge rusher, but we'll see...Alexander is a special teams demon and he is fast for his size, but I don't see him playing well at OLB.

DE Phillip Daniels joins C Casey Rabach and LS Ethan Albright in contract negotiations with the team.

There have been some real burners in the 40 this year. RB CJ Spiller, WRs Golden Tate and Jacoby Ford all had impressive 40-yard times.

Tate weighed in at 199 pounds and benched 225 pounds 17 times. Watching film of this guy reminds me of a younger Santana Moss.

Sam Bradford gained weight since the season. And it was all muscle. Bradford went from 220 to 236.

That could make things interesting because the Rams interest in Bradford spiked. If Bradford goes number one, things could get easier for the Redskins. They could take Russell Okung at number four.

Then again, Clausen, who didn't participate in the combine, could wow scouts at his pro day.

Mike Shanahan did say that the 'Skins would do thorough evaluations at the pro days.

Jahvid Best is intriguing. The Redskins do need an explosive player. They lack guys who can score in the blink of an eye. Best is one of those. However, it's hard to forget that hit he took on his final play as a Cal Bear.

And Jared Veldheer may come from Hillsdale in Michigan, but could be a star on the O-line in the NFL.
