The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine officially kicked off Tuesday, when players, team staffs and media members rolled into Indianapolis.

Another highly touted passer, Wyoming QB Josh Allen came in at 6-foot-4 7/8, 237 pounds and with a wingspan of 73 3/8 inches. But analyst Barrett Sallee opted for a little satire in reporting on the lengthy signal caller.

Notre Dame G Quenton Nelson drew attention early on for his performance at the bench press.

Another offensive lineman, Ohio State C Billy Price, suffered an injury during his bench press session and subsequently did not participate at the podium.

Yahoo! NFL reporter Charles Robinson drew attention to the measurements of Ohio State TE Marcus Baugh.'s Mike Wobschall attended Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer's interview with "Voice of the Vikings" Paul Allen Thursday morning and gained some valuable insight.

In honor of "Throwback Thursday," the NFL had some fun and tweeted a vintage video of "Leon Sandcastle," the fictional character designed as a disguise of Hall of Fame CB Deion Sanders. The Sandcastle character was originally created for an NFL Network commercial and appeared in a Super Bowl commercial in 2013.
