INDIANAPOLIS — Several players, including Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, Georgia wide receiver A.J. Green,  and Boise State wide receiver Titus Young worked out in a performance shirt named E39 and made by Under Armour.

The shirt is designed to measure precision and accuracy. It is a compression-fitted shirt with electronic touch points that track the players’ biometric signals and sends them to a wireless device that transmits the data.

It measures the athletes heart rate, breathing rate and core acceleration.

This might help Cam assess himself later. Especially after his performance this weekend.

I want to buy an E39 so I can measure the G Force getting off the couch.

I think Carolina is going to draft Cam Newton, as well they should. They need a QB bad. Why would you choose Gabbert or Locker over him. They are both very ordinary and not deserving of the No. 1 overall pick. Look at the QBs in the NFC South. Guess who has the worst one? I rest my case!

I wonder if they measure beer consumption, while watching those young dudes motor around?

As far as the Falcons are concerned, take a CB in the first and draft Randall Cobb (playmaker) in the 2nd, a change of pace back in the 3rd (Jacquizz Rodgers or Noel Divine), and a burner (Lockett) in the 4th.

Take Lockett in the 6th.

@ BirdDirty (3:47 pm)… change DB to DE in the 1st round (largly dependent on who remains when for pick #27), and pick either Cobb or Lockett (seems redundant) in later rounds and you got yourself a winner.

If Newton,Gabbert and Locker go in the top 20.Somebody amazing is going to drop out of the top 15. Which also means . . . . you get the dominoe effect.Love the draft
Go T.D.

Good one, D-Led on the beer consumption. Did anyone ever figure out why the Combine is *always* in Indianapolis?
