The 2013 NFL combine gets underway this week and we should get to hear from Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert once again when he addresses the media and makes his media rounds.
David Todd and I discussed on the Monday edition of The Terrible Podcast what questions we would like to see Colbert asked and below are a few that were floating around in my head. Even though Colbert is most likely to be guarded with his responses, it never hurts to ask the right questions just in case he winds up be forthcoming with a few of his responses.
How is the recovery of Sean Spence coming along?
This is a question I get asked at least once a week and the reports that i have read range from one of the spectrum to the other. By this I mean some think he will be ready by the start of training camp while others suggest that the team is not counting on him contributing in the early part of the season. Maybe Colbert can shed a little light on this.
How is the recovery of Heath Miller coming along?
Another injury related question, but a significant one. Colbert might tell us that Miller will most likely start of training camp on the PUP list, which we all expect him to do, but some sort of an update would be nice.
Any thoughts on an anonymous player criticizing the shape LaMarr Woodley was in last season along with his play?
This is a very topical subject right now and it will be interesting to see how Colbert would respond to such a question as the Steelers don\’t usually have these kind of locker-room problems.
Was wide receiver coach Scottie Montgomery told to look for work elsewhere or did the opportunity for him to return to Duke come about all of a sudden?
The timing of the departure of Montgomery is curious as usually coaching staff changes take place a bit earlier in the offseason. Was Montgomery forced out or was this an opportunity that came about all of a sudden?
Feel free to add your own questions that you would like to see Colbert asked in the comments below.
