New, comments

It's nearly time for hundreds of NFL hopefuls to show their talents to NFL teams.

We are one day away from the NFL scouting combine, which invites 300 prospects to Indianapolis to run, lift and jump their way into the hearts of NFL teams.

For the Falcons, of course, this is a critical time. The combine's numerous drills are probably overrated when it comes to actually evaluating NFL talent, but you've got the opportunity to interview players and see them up-close outside of a game setting, and give yourself more information to consider and evaluate. When you've got the #8 pick in the draft and a full complement of selections, every edge you can give your team is a vital edge.

Here's what lies ahead for the combine, courtesy of Niners Nation and the official combine site.
