D1's 2010 NFL Combine Showing Strong

In addition to the well documented success of Broncos QB Tim Tebow in the preseason, many other D1 athletes in the 2010 D1 Combine Prep program have done well. Giants DT Linval Joseph recorded his first sack against the Ravens and Rams TE Michael Hoomanawanui caught four passes for 53 yards and two touchdowns against the Patriots this weekend. After a big preseason, Bengals WR Jordan Shipley looks like he could start in the slot when the season begins and Raiders OL Jared Veldheer started the third preseason game at center. Good job, guys!
