NFL Combine Head Shots

Not a whole lot of Buckeyes are hanging out in Peytonland aka Indianapolis, Indiana. That is actually a good thing, as all the players that could be here decided that Columbus was ultimately better for 1 more year than any of the crappy NFL teams that could have been their suitors.

However, Vernon Gholston took some time off from his day job (right) to participate in the combine. Gholston, who has an awesome name to say or type, officially checked in at 6'3" 266lbs. That actually makes Gholston even more impressive considering the Earth weighs in at an astonishing 6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (6E+24) kilograms. Now I could do the conversion from pounds mass to kilograms, but you get the point. Howie Long's kid will be the first of the board, unless VG can switch out the weights and bench 6E+24 kgs thirty five times. All I can say is don't count him out!

Something tells me VG would rather do this at New England than the New York Jets.

Vernon Gholston, Kirk Barton, and Larry Grant were the three Buckeyes representing. Only Vernon figures to go in the first round, unless Barton or Grant run a 4.19 forty.

Speaking of Kirk Barton, Florida's Derrick Harvey weighed in at 271lbs. Troy Smith nor his offensive line could not be reached for comment. Don't always believe what you read on the internet, as some dummy who runs posted
Harvey checked in at a ridiculous, O-Line-esque 291lbs.
