Justin Blackmon plans to “do it all” at the Combine, too

With the annual underwear Olympics known as the Scouting Combine only a few days away, we’re trying to shame the top prospects into working out in Indy by celebrating the top prospects who have decided to go against the grain (plug in the Red Hook sign, McLovin) and put their lofty status at risk by working out at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Many of the top prospects choose to defer until their Pro Day workouts, where the players operate on familiar turf.  For quarterbacks, it means being able to stage a choreographed pitch-and-catch session with receivers to whom the passers have been passing the ball for months, if not years.  For receivers, it means catching the ball from someone with whom they’ve working repeatedly.

But that won’t stop the top receiver in this year’s class from working out at the Scouting Combine.  Oklahoma State’s Justin Blackmon recently told Albert Breer of NFL Network that Blackmon will “do it all” in Indy.

Though some would say he has nothing to gain by working out, the truth is that he’ll show scouts that he’s willing to compete, regardless of the circumstances.

  1. my hope? Well, that would be that Manning is healthy, ready to play, and the Colts trade down to Cleveland and rob the bank. Which was rumored to be 4 1st rd picks and 2 2nd rd picks, then take Blackmon with the 4th pick. Would be HUGE!

  2. “cassrangers said: …the Colts trade down to Cleveland and rob the bank. Which was rumored to be 4 1st rd picks and 2 2nd rd picks…”

    ROFLOL! Four 1st round picks!

    You shouldn’t read rumors on Insane Colts Masturbatory Fantasies.com. You definately shouldn’t make yourself like mentally challenged by posting them!

    Four 1sts!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    AND he adds “two 2nds!” ROFLOLOLOLOL!!!!

  3. @lostsok…. Thanks for that.. Lol

    Mr Blackmon is not making a good decision IMO. I appreciate the competitiveness of it, but he can only hurt his status. I look forward to seeing what he can do.

  4. from just watching him play here on the west coast, this guy is awesome he has all the measurables to be great, he does it all the only thing is he tends to drop the ball & carry it loosely at times just my opinion

  5. Is it really obligatory to say “with the annual underwear Olympics known as the Scouting Combine”, EVERY time you mention the combine?

    No, I didn’t think so.

  6. told Albert Breer of NFL Network that Blackmon will “do it all” in Indy.

    That doesn’t really mean anything.. especially in your underwear.

  7. Love his attitude and hope he performs well because he has everything to lose and nothing to gain by this.

    Should just run the position drills. Post his 40 at his proday. Even if he does not do the combine he is a lock for the top 10. Nothing to gain IMHO.
