And now the 2006 class

The 2006 Combine Class was pretty special. Check out how they are doing.

Brodie Croyle, the third-year pro from Alabama is having a great camp as he looks to be the starter. Croyle led the Chiefs on a 16-play drive against the Bears' first-team defense to open preseason last week.

After a great first year that led the Chargers to the Pro Bowl, Marcus McNeil has continued to improve his game and will surely be a standout for San Diego this season.

DeAngelo Williams scored on runs of 1 and 10 yards, both after mistakes by quarterback Jim Sorgi, as the Panthers beat the visiting Colts in their preseason game. Williams finished the game with nine carries for 55 yards.

In their preseason bout against the Colts, Panthers’ WR Chris Hannon made two grabs for 46 yards.

Ingle Martin saw playing time during the second half of the Titans’ preseason opener against the Rams, even attempting a dive for touchdown which he barely missed.

Ben Obomanu, the Auburn graduate has went from a first year practice squad receiver for the Seahawks to a contender for the third WR slot this fall.

After starting his NFL career with the Patriots, Garrett Mills was acquired by the Minnesota Vikings last fall. This fall, Mills has experienced a sprained left ankle that has sidelined him for most of camp. Mills continues to work hard to get healthy and get back on the field.

Bobby Carpenter is heading into his 3rd season with the Cowboys. As a key special teams player, he is looking to break into the OLB or ILB rotation.
