Keep an eye on the Combine

We've had years in the past where there have been Shreveport-Bossier City athletes at the NFL Scouting Combine. This year may be the best yet for the area at the Combine. Former Evangel stars Chase Pittman and Jonathan Wade will be there when the event starts on Thursday in Indianapolis.

If you don't think the Combine is important, then just consider what it meant to former Loyola star Jon Alston.

His good showing at the Combine helped him become a first-day selection in last year's NFL Draft. He made the St. Louis Rams and now Rams officials are talking about Alston as a possible breakthrough guy next year.

So don't discount the Combine. Instead, keep an eye on the NFL Network this week and the Combine's activities.
