NFL Scouting Combine Recap: Day 3


We're three days into the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine and fans are still filtering into the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis to check out the sights and sounds.

The offensive linemen and running backs participated in their Combine drills Friday afternoon, while the quarterbacks and wide receivers went to the podium to speak with the media. Before the next generation of players spoke, the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers met at center stage for a coin flip that determined  who would own the ninth and 10th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Unfortunately the 49ers came away with the "W" and will pick before the Raiders. The draft is slated to take place April 26-28 in Arlington, Texas, which gives the Raiders front office some time to figure out what they'll do in the first round.

Following the coin flip, UCLA signal-caller Josh Rosen and University of Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley, along with college football's other top prospects, were available to answer questions about how their game will translate in the NFL.

Regarding Rosen, many have questioned his dedication to the game, but Friday the former Bruin made it clear his love for football is undeniable. The Southern California-native was cool and collected at the podium, and is eager to get to work with whatever team drafts him.

Ridley also made some interesting comments about Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper, saying he models parts of his game after the former member of the Crimson Tide.

Later in the afternoon, The MMQB's Robert Klemko stopped by the Raiders table on Radio Row to sit down and chat. That conversation is included into Friday's edition of the Official Raiders podcast, take a listen below.

Also don't miss out on the story of Austin Corbett, an offensive lineman from Reno, Nev., who grew up a big Raiders fan.
