TE Gresham 'Anxious' to Showcase Skills at Combine

Gresham preparing for NFL Combine: Jermaine Gresham is 6-feet-6, 257 pounds and has been timed in the 40-yard dash in less than 4.8 seconds. Simply put, he's built in the mold of the seam-busting tight ends coveted by NFL teams. The former Oklahoma star is the top-rated tight end by NFLDraftScout.com, and is expected to be a first-round pick in April. Since his surgery in early September, Gresham has been waiting for his next opportunity to impress scouts. He remained with the Sooners throughout the season, but shortly after Oklahoma's victory over Stanford in the Sun Bowl, Gresham arrived at the renowned Athletes Performance Institute in Arizona. While the official API training docket ended a few days ago, giving athletes the time to spend with friends and family before the combine, Gresham has remained in Phoenix. Anticipating... "I am looking forward to going to the combine," Gresham said. "I'm anxious to do the medical and prove that I'm good; that I'm the same guy I was before. I'm looking forward to shedding any of those doubts about me." (CBSSports.com)
