What to watch: Big 12 at NFL combine

After a few arrivals and physical examinations on Wednesday, the NFL combine picks up a bit today with some media access and player measurements. Here's the full schedule.

NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper weighed in with a few things to watch from the Big 12 this week:

He says check out RG3 for the intrigue:
QB Robert Griffin III: Few quarterbacks listed under 6-foot-2 started NFL games this season. Only one NFL quarterback is shorter than 6 feet -- Seneca Wallace. Hey, there's no height that makes a guy great, but it's fair to say scouts and coaches take it into account. I have Griffin listed at 6-2, and my guess is he measures at that. But the combine gives us a lot of interesting measurements. Griffin seems like a lock to be a top-five pick, even more so if he's as tall as currently listed.

And on health watch? A very productive Sooner.
WR Ryan Broyles Not much more to say about Broyles. If he's progressing really well, you wouldn't be surprised to see him off the board before the third round. The question is whether a team feels he can help early.

It's too bad Broyles' injury has hurt his draft stock, but here's guessing he'll be in the NFL not long after he heals.
