There's nothing I love more than some good standing broad jump play-by-play. I used to scoff at the NFL combine, but it's grown on me over the years. The broad jump play-by-play man just told me how sports tape "promotes the flow of blood" before a player leaps into the air.

So far, Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry has the most impressive broad jump with 10 feet, 4 inches. USC linebacker Brian Cushing just recorded 10 feet.  (That's Frank's boy). And fellow USC linebacker Rey Maualuga just had a disappointing 8 feet, 10 inches. The wild shock of hair shooting out of his headband could've hindered the leap.

OK, this is so addictive. If you're at work, also check out the 3-cone drill, which was invented by Titans scout C.O. Brocato. It's easy to make fun of the NFL Network for devoting 25 hours to men running 40s and cone drills, but it's exactly what they should be doing.
