This is the time of year when the various NFL circles are buzzing with reactions to performances at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Within those same circles roam the annual debates about the value found within the Combine drills, the general disdain for overreactions to individual performances, and of course the overreactions to individual performances that make the whole thing so entertaining.

I’m mixing things up this week, with my links segment, as this is going to be 100% about the Combine so far. The offensive positions are pretty much wrapping things up, and I’ll do this again when the defensive observations are available for the taking.

Before we get started on the links, however, I want to point out that our own Andy Carlson has joined forces with Di Murphy of Daily Norseman to create some more podcast shenanigans plenty worth the cost of admission. If you are a fan of the Purple For The Win! podcast then be sure to check out Andy Must Dia promising spin-off that takes a broader look at Minnesota sports.
