Greetings, draftniks! Day Two of the Combine featured lots of quarterback press conferences, and there are no Robert Griffin or Andrew Luck types in this draft when it comes to sounding charismatic and impressive at the podium, for whatever that's worth. Also, Jim Harbaugh is an odd dude.

Andy Benoit and I are running around Indy trying to meet with coaches and low-level front office people, rather than generally hovering around the media room. So instead of FO-only combine reports this year, we decided to just depend on the dependable Mike Tanier to do the dependable Mike Tanier thing of finding humor and one or two actual comments of interest within the dependably repetitive day-long parade of coaches and general managers refusing to give the media any details about "THE PROCESS."

Forgot to post this yesterday, due to Daddy Duty. The ages of quarterback prospects, why it matters, and 120 hours in the life of Titus Young. Also at Sports on Earth: my wide receiver Top Fives continue with the Dolphins, and the Jets should be up by Wednesday.

This week Peter looks at who has the most at stake at the combine, talks about the future of Alex Smith, and sounds off on the lack of minority coaches.

Forget Leon Sandcastle. He’s a joke – albeit a hilarious one. I’ve dug deep into my contacts to unearth a gem. A prospect so good that he will make you wonder if his career will be on par with the all-time greats. In fact, I guarantee it.

If you’re an NFL team or analyst and you’re not looking for the next unsung quarterback with potential to develop into a winning starter then you’re not doing your job.

No link yet. The highest-profile release of the offseason so far? Yes, he's 36, but he was Defensive Player of the Year a couple years ago. Let's see... a team that is close to a title, that could use a hard-hitting safety who can also play nickelback... Hmmm, I can't think of any team like that. (Hi, Patriots.)

Normally I just let Mike take care of linking his stuff here on his own, but this is one of my favorite things he has ever written. I'm not going to tell you why, because I can't talk about another site's writers.

After the debacle of their opening drives during the playoffs, I did a post for Niners Nation looking at what DVOA and our drive stats (thanks to Jim Armstrong) had to say about the matter. In addition to that main story, stats-savvy FO readers would probably be intrigued by the subplot: Even in a split as granular as opening offensive possessions, there's a stark contrast between what a drive-level statistic says and what a play-level statistic says.

Gil Brandt has his own numerical measure for this year's college quarterback crop. It's sort of hard to tell how successful this formula is without any real background on it, but here's something to whet your appetite for the Lewin Career Forecast.
