INDIANAPOLIS––The NFL Combine continues on Thursday with a new group arriving in Indianapolis, the skill position players: quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers.
For a second consecutive evening, the Green Bay Packers will have an opportunity to interview players on a one-on-one basis, although the player pool has just about doubled in size. On Wednesday, the Packers only had the opportunity to talk to Group 1, which included offensive linemen, tight ends and specialists.
For the Group 1 that is now entering their second day, they also take part in medical examinations, fulfill their media obligations and get measured. This includes everything from height, weight, arm length and hand width.
For the skill position players that just arrived, they'll register, go through orientation and go to the hospital for their pre-exam and X-rays before meeting with individual teams this evening.
From a media standpoint, there's not much Packers-specific content available, although NFL Network and SiriusXM NFL Radio will be broadcasting live from the Combine throughout the day.
General manager Ted Thompson and head coach Mike McCarthy don't meet with the media until Friday, but there's a couple people with Packers ties holding press conferences on Thursday.
Just finished speaking was former Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, current head coach of the Miami Dolphins, and there's obviously a lot of scrutiny on him for what happened between Jonathan Martin, Richie Incognito and others within the organization.
Later in the day, we'll hear from former Packers assistant Andy Reid, who's now head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs and former Packers executive John Schneider, coming off his Super Bowl victory as general manager of the Seattle Seahawks.
Stay tuned, things get more interesting as the week goes on here in Indianapolis.
