INDIANAPOLIS — Well, Im at the NFL Scouting Combine today, but Marcus Lattimore is not yet, sorry to disappoint.
Two Gamecocks are scheduled to make appearances in front of the media members here today center T.J. Johnson and tight end Justice Cunningham. Lattimore, the star of the show from a South Carolina perspective, wont speak until tomorrow, but this week is just as big, if not bigger, for Johnson and Cunningham.
Neither player is guaranteed to be a draft pick, but both will work out here in hopes of catching someones eye. Johnson and Cunningham wont take the field for their position workouts until Saturday. Their first three days in Indianapolis will be filled by medical examinations, team and media interviews and psychological testing.
The more than 300 players who are attending this years combine are on a staggered schedule based on position so as the linemen, kickers and tight ends rotate out of the media room today, the quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers will come in tomorrow. That means Ace Sanders also will talk for the first time since making a late decision to give up his senior year at South Carolina.
Today, though, we wait for Johnson and Cunningham. Be sure to check back later today and in tomorrows newspaper and website to hear what they say and all the latest South Carolina news from Indianapolis.
