Much of what these gentlemen have to say will be televised on the NFL Network, plus later today we'll have some highlights from John Fox and Ryan Pace.

A couple reminders for you, here's the full participant list for the combine and the schedule of on-field workouts. Here's our NFL Draft section so you can see how some of the mocks are going so far. And here are our community guidelines that you all agreed to before joining Windy City Gridiron. I feel it's important to share that one since this is an Open Thread and those can get a little crazy.
