NFL’S MEAT AND GREET: NEW YORK NEWSDAY chronicles the NFL’s annual combine in Indianapolis.
Highlights: "Former Illinois linebacker Kevin Hardy, who came into the league in 1996, decided to have some fun during his (Wonderlic intelligence) test, changing one of the questions from: ‘Do you like tall women?’ He crossed out the ‘t’ in tall to make the question read: ‘Do you like ‘all’ women?" Hardy wrote: ‘Yes.‘"
"In 1985, when wide receiver Jerry Rice was coming out of Mississippi Valley State, he ran a 4.6 at the combine. Scouts were so concerned that he dropped to 16th, where he was taken by the San Francisco 49ers. All Rice did was turn into the greatest receiver of all time."
