Jammal Brown was a big part of Oklahoma's success.
I've been training at Athletes Performance in Phoenix for about five weeks now getting ready for the NFL Scouting Combine and my on-campus workout.

It's been pretty tough but I've worked hard and feel like I'm really prepared. My shoulder was a little sore after the season ended, so I had to take it easy on that when I first got out here, but now it feels great and I'm ready to go.

I've been working out with a lot of great players, including Mark Clayton and Brodney Pool from OU. They're not in my actual workout group, but it's good to have some Sooners out here with me.

I've been preparing for what's coming up in a lot of different ways. I want to prove to the NFL teams that I am a hard worker and that I will always try to get better. I have improved my eating habits. I understand that everyone in the NFL is talented and that I will need to continue to work hard to be a great player.

Now, I'm ready to go make it happen in Indy.

I'll follow up next week and let you know how things went.
