NFL Draft Preview - Combine Edition  

The NFL Draft process gets underway this weekend with the Combine, also known as the Underwear Olympics. You're correct to be somewhat skeptical. But there *are* some things we can learn at the annual meeting in Indy, above and beyond all the hype. We'll talk about them on today's show. Guest: Dan Kadar of SB Nation.

10 Combine Questions That Could Actually Get Answered:

* Can Deshaun Watson do anything to overcome worries about 14 clean-pocket interceptions from last year?

* Does DeShone Kizer take off? Or does someone like Pat Mahomes close the gap on him?

* The QBs sure are terrible. But what do teams think of them?

* Will Leonard Fournette's medical checkups reveal anything that could scare teams off?

* Same with Dalvin Cook's interviews (after a history with police run-ins)?

* Will John Ross run a 4.3 40, and will that change what teams think of him?

* Will Christian McCaffrey do anything athletically to convince us that he’s got "slashing" ability as a runner?

* Can Mike Williams run fast enough to avoid Laquon Treadwell "4.63" comparisons?

* Is JuJu Smith-Schuster's draft stock dependent on his 40? Same for RB D'Onta Foreman (250 pounds)?

* Will TE Adam Shaheen, from Division 2 Ashland, bust out and be the buzz of Indy.

Kirk Cousins, Marcus Mariota & Much More!  

Our round-up of skill-position free agents wraps up with a look at Kirk Cousins, Martellus Bennett, Jared Cook, Kenny Stills and Tim Hightower, and then we dig into sophomore sensation Marcus Mariota and judge whether his film indicates he's ready to be a fantasy starter in 2017.
