INDIANAPOLIS -- As new Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey answered his first question during a NFL scouting combine media session, an announcement came over the loudspeaker. Robert Griffin III was heading for another podium.
Mularkey hardly had a crowd to begin with. After people cleared out to see the Baylor quarterback, I counted eight reporters with the Jaguars coach, including this one.
Unsurprisingly, Mularkey showed good humor about it.
“I almost went over there,” he said to laughs later. “I’m so happy he’s 6-2 and not 6-1. I could feel the wind go by. That’s fine. I’m an under-the-radar kind of guy, I don’t try to look for any spotlight by any means. That’s Gene Smith, I think that’s our owner … I think we’re all on the same page as far as the level where we are flying.”
The press room is abuzz about Griffin, who was apparently fantastic. Now we’re bracing for Andrew Luck’s arrival.
We’ll be back with stuff on Luck and more from Mularkey in a bit.
