Baylor Bears at the 2014 NFL Combine -- Links, Info, Schedule

The NFL's Draft Combine formally began yesterday in Indianapolis, and this year, Baylor is sending a Big 12-leading 6 players to the event.

With the NFL Combine kicking off yesterday, but not really getting going until this weekend, I thought we might need an article/storystream in which we can follow the progress of our Bears at the event this year.

For the first time in school history, six Baylor Bears were invited to the Combine, the most of any school in the conference this year.  Baylor tied for 6th-most in the country.  Our six players:

RB Lache Seastrunk
WR Tevin Reese
TE Jordan Najvar
OL Cyril Richardson
S Ahmad Dixon
CB Demetri Goodson

SB Nation has an entire hub dedicated solely to this year's Combine where you can find all the latest/best info from the network's NFL blogs, nearly all of whom are focused entirely on the Draft at this point in time.  I'll put that hub in the front page shortly for those interested in seeing the goings-on in Indy.  One thing you might want to check out from that page is the full Schedule and List of Participants organized by position, that way you can know who is supposed to be there and when they will actually do Combine-y things.  Another is the Combine Primer from Arrowhead Pride, the outstanding blog for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Throughout the next week, if you see something I miss on twitter or elsewhere about our Bears, drop it into this thread.  For now...


Goodson and Dixon ran today, the last day of the Combine: All-in-all, I think most everyone acquitted themselves well. Baylor's athletes clearly excelled at those tests focusing on pure athleticism (vertical, shuttle, broad jump) while also performing well in the drills. I didn't expect that Lache could get anywhere close to the 4.30 40 he teased going into the Combine, so his failure to do so wasn't a surprise. I don't see anything here that will be a huge red flag when it comes to draft evaluations.
