Combine quick wrapup — Day One

Day one of the NFL Combine has concluded, though if you were watching at home you might wonder what all the media fuss was about.

The reality is that little really happened today from a real tangible standpoint.

What did happen is that offensive linemen, tight ends and specialists arrived and were measured and went through interviews with teams. Most teams typically interview players in a nighttime block from 7-11 p.m., for 15 minutes at a time. Teams can interview up to 60 players during their time here for 15 minutes apiece.

On-field workouts don’t start until Friday. Those last until Monday, by which time much of the media is gone. Media interviews take place here Wednesday-Saturday, and after Saturday much of the media departs.

Thursday will see the arrival of quarterbacks, running backs and receivers, a pretty heavy-hitting group. Players in those position groups will be measured and do their mandatory media session (typically 10 minutes in a group and then often a few more radio/TV interviews and maybe some other stuff).

What also happens Thursday is another round of interviews by team officials, including Seattle general manager John Schneider. That’s due to happen at 8 a.m. Seattle time. So I’ll pass along highlights of that as quickly as possible, and then a more complete version later.

Schneider will undoubtedly be asked about the future of Marshawn Lynch and contract negotiations for Russell Wilson, and whatever else.

As for highlights of what happened Wednesday, NFL.com covers it pretty well here. ESPN also offers a good roundup here and has three things learned about the Seahawks here.

Seahawks.com, meanwhile, has a profile of Minnesota tight end Maxx Williams, who could be an option for the team depending on the status of Zach Miller. Williams said the Seahawks are one of the 22 teams he had interviews scheduled with here.
