Morning Tailgate: Feb. 29

Posted by Taylor Price on February 29, 2012 – 10:16 AM

Leap day here at the Morning Tailgate happens to cover a lot of leaping from the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine.

With the league’s annual pre-draft audition officially over, we’ve compiled analysis on who hurt and helped their draft stock with their respective performances in Indianapolis.

Meanwhile, the Bay Area is buzzing over the six-year contract extension given to outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks, who’s coming off a career-year where he posted 7.0 sacks and 59 tackles in his first year as a full-time starter.

We spoke with Brooks exclusively about his continued progress on and off the field. TV49’s Scott Kegley sat down with Brooks as well to discuss his outlook on his future with the 49ers.

More on Brooks, combine highlights and other team news can be found after the jump.

Morning Tailgate: Feb. 28

Posted by Taylor Price on February 28, 2012 – 9:55 AM

This year’s top cornerback prospect, Morris Claiborne of LSU, didn’t disappoint Tuesday at the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine.

Considered by many to be the top defensive back and a top-10 draft pick, Claiborne ran a 4.47 unofficially in his 40-yard dash. He followed up his solid showing in the running portion by displaying excellent ball skills in the field drills.

You can track all the pertinent times and numbers from the defensive backs at NFL.com, which includes the blistering time from UCF cornerback Josh Robinson, who was clocked at 4.29 unofficially.

Robinson dashed himself atop the 40 times for this year’s combine. It remains to be seen how much he improved his draft stock.

2012 Combine All-Personality Team

Posted by Taylor Price on February 27, 2012 – 3:52 PM

Fresh off our visit to the NFL’s annual Scouting Combine, it’s time to unveil our annual “All-Personality Team,” which includes the best notes and quotes on the top characters in Indianapolis.

Sure, there were players with better 40 times, vertical jumps or repetitions on the 225-pound bench press, but for those interested in the most impressive individuals who came through the media work room, this blog is for you.

Last year, 49ers second-round draft pick Colin Kaepernick got the nod as the quarterback. Will a future 49ers player make the list this year? We’ll know by late April.

For now, find out who made the 22-man All-Personality Team after the jump.

Combine Live Blog: Sunday

Posted by Taylor Price on February 26, 2012 – 6:08 AM

INDIANAPOLIS – And they’re off…

Pretty soon, the same can be said for the 49ers.com crew as we head back to the Bay Area later today. But for now, 40 times for the quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs will dominate Sunday’s headlines from the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine.

Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III just ran a 4.41 unofficially in his first run. And for the fashion fans out there, Griffin wore black socks and gold Michael Johnson-like cleats. Surprising not to see Griffin in the usual cartoon-ish socks he often wears off the field.

The player known as “RG3″ just ran a 4.3(8) in his second attempt.

INDIANAPOLIS – Georgia guard Cordy Glenn ran a 4.96, 40-yard dash. Not bad for a 6-foot-5, 345-pound guard.

That’s probably the early highlight of the morning as offensive linemen, tight ends and specialists will go through various testing drills at the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine.

Combine Live Blog: Friday

Posted by Taylor Price on February 24, 2012 – 7:27 AM

INDIANAPOLIS – Friday should be one of the busiest days of the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine.

Quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers will make the rounds in the media workroom inside of Lucas Oil Stadium.

With many draft experts predicting the 49ers will select a wide receiver in the 2012 NFL Draft, we’ll be sure to track down several of the top prospects at the position just to be safe. Then again, Trent Baalke proved in last year’s draft that common perception doesn’t always equate to 49ers draft picks.

Morning Tailgate: Feb. 24

Posted by Taylor Price on February 24, 2012 – 6:25 AM

INDIANAPOLIS – The coffee is flowing and the media is entering the workroom at Lucas Oil Stadium. Pretty soon, the coffee will be running low and the line of reporters waiting for lunch sandwiches will be as long as the 40-yard dash itself.

How’s that for an intro. That’s the scene as of 8:45 this morning. In a matter of 30 minutes or so, the nation’s best quarterbacks, running backs and receivers will start filling in for their meet and greets with the national media.
