Kyle Rudolph won’t work out at Combine

The consensus best tight end prospect in a relatively weak draft class won’t workout at the NFL Scouting Combine next week.

Tony Pauline of DraftInsider reports Kyle Rudolph of Notre Dame won’t take part in the physical side of things in Indy as he recovers from hamstring surgery.  The news isn’t particularly a surprise, and Rudolph looks slated to be recovered in time for Notre Dame’s Pro Day.

Rudolph, like Rob Gronkowski last year, will enter the draft coming off a major injury.  He missed the last seven games of the 2010 season, but had already produced enough to show NFL teams he can be a weapon catching the ball at the next level.

Projected as a second round pick, Silva did leave Rudolph out of PFT’s first Mock Draft.   That’s a big mark against Rudolph’s chances of going on the first night of the draft considering Silva is a Notre Dame homer.

  1. Here is the story that I am hearing…Manning came to the table and stated that he “didn’t want to break the bank!” Manning was holding out for better team mates and wants a new OC (one who can get the plays into him in a timely manner). He wanted Polian to go out on the Free Agent market and spend some money that he didn’t want. Polian told him to be a QB and not a coach and it pissed Peyton off!!! the negotiations then became heated…highly heated. Peyton then stated “OK…I will act like a player and demanded a trade!!!” Polian needs to check his ego at the door and get him signed! Peyton wants a stronger line and a new OC and will take less money…seems like those demands are not that hard!!! Get it done and don’t have the entire state of Indiana on you Polian!!!!! Franchise tag was the only way to cool both sides!

    Ohhh, so that’s why Kyle Rudolph won’t be working out at the combine.
