Grace dominates the combine. (YouTube.com)
By Will Brinson

Because I was in Indy for the combine, I didn't get to stay at home and watch it with my kids. Also, I don't have kids.

But if I did, then I would definitely encourage them, like Grace in the video below, to compete in the combine drills while the players on the television did.

Our pal Doug Farrar of Shutdown Corner actually talked to Grace's father

"This started with Grace calling [the players at the combine] with long hair or earrings girls," Duane said. "Then, she just joined in on the fun."

Duane emphasized that she's a big Packers fan and is "NOT happy" that the season is over right now. That makes all of us, Duane.

As for Grace's performance, she warrants inclusion on the combine "winners" list. Though she doesn't have the size-plus-athleticism combo that someone like Dontari Poe does, she did absolutely give 100 percent more of an effort in her combine workouts than Vontaze Burflict did.

LMAO. I clumped ADD and ADHD for the older readers, at one time there was no real distinction between the two and many see them as the same. How long you spend on that response? First you insult all hyperactive children by simplifying their obstacle by saying it can be cured by running around and then you move on to the medical community and society in general. My god do you have a doctorate in child development? Are you a teacher? Are you a medical proffessional? No you are someone who made an assinine statement and then tried to write it off as sarcasm when you got called on it. Yep medications can cause adverse effects even when prescribed correctly for an ailment. Common knowledge statements must make you feel smart. Yep not every hyper child has both. Some hyper children have neither. For you to make running around a cure all it, then does apply to all medical conditions. Do you actually know the age when they start medicating children because they don't drug small children, they drug them when they get medium sized. Ummm running around is actually the drug they prescribe for obese children. Please continue you write your own prescription for stupidity.

I'm stupid you say? How smart are you that you claim I made mention of attention deficit? ADD isn't a hyperactivity disorder, hence the ADHD term that includes it.  Not every hyper child has both, genius. And the comparision of someone with high blood pressure doesn't even apply. Yes, I totally bashed every type of medication for every type of health concern. (sarcasm in case you can't comprehend) You obviously are offended by your own in depth analysis of what I typed, and turned into your own backwards opinion. Special education obviously didn't work for you, DUMB ASS. That's a real sophisticated thing to say for someone as intelligent as you. Oh my, someone made an exercise comment on a sports thread because he believes that it's not always necessary to drug small children. I bet if I made a comment about childhood obesity you would have cried yourself into hyperventalation. I bet your smart enough to know that studies show doctors misdiagnose ADD & ADHD and give unnecessary medication to children majority of the time too, right? Did you also know that these same medications cause health conditions when prescribed incorrectly and put children at risk? Do you want me to continue to make you look like the idiot you are or should I stop here? Get some knowledge and a valid arguement before you try to blow up on someone over two sentences. SMH

Yep if parents had their ADD or ADHD kids run around they would magically be able to concentrate and have the attention spans it takes to learn. Millions of teachers would like to ball kick your dumb ass right now. Hell if a guy with blood pressure problems would just run around he wouldn't need his medicine and definately wouldn't have a stroke or heart attack. Too bad there aren't stupid pills cause they'd do you some good.

This is awesome! Maybe if more parents had their kids that active we wouldn't need so many prescription drugs for hyperactivity.

Sweet Kid!  She's probably more mature than most at the combine.

Great straight line speed, lateral movement awareness and fluid hips like Kiper and McShay always talk about.  However, the back peddle is her weakness.  In spite of that she still grades out better than any Notre Dame DB coming out this year so I agree with those below me.  I see late first to early second round but she may sneak into the first based on her not having any off the field issues like a certain Alabama DB, Notre Dame WR, or DB that was kicked out of Florida and ended up at North Alabama and has like 18 kids her age.
