LaDainian Tomlinson's Combine Memories - (video)
The great No. 21 recalls his trip to the 2001 NFL Scouting combine, and how he was told he needed to run the 40-yard dash under a certain time if he wanted to be a 1st round draft pick.

Six Potential Draft Targets to Watch at the Combine - Ricky Henne
A 6-7, 281-pound force up front, the Oregon defensive lineman’s star is shining bright heading into the Combine.  The reigning Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year showed flashes over his career with the Ducks, and put them all together for a masterful 2015 campaign.  Buckner totaled 83 tackles and 17 tackles for loss while leading the conference with 10.5 sacks.  Many pundits believe he will best wreak havoc as a 3-4 DE or DT with a skillset that will translate seamlessly at the next level.

Staying healthy a focus for Chargers' edge rusher Kyle Emanuel - Eric Williams
Emanuel played a total of 284 defensive snaps as a rookie last season. Although injured most of the year, he missed just one game, finishing with 25 tackles, a sack and an interception.

Five prospects with the most to gain at NFL combine - Kevin Weidl (insider)
The underclassman has seen his stock cool off after getting suspended for the Sugar Bowl (marijuana possession) and putting together inconsistent tape in 2015.

WhWhy PFF is obsessed with DeForest Buckner - Sam Monson short, everything. Buckner posted 67 total defensive pressures over the season which was nine more than any other interior player, and 17 more than Leonard Williams managed a year ago. Even when you add edge rushers to the mix that figure is still only bettered by three players this season, one of whom is Bosa.
