[BN] Blitz newsletter: Are you ready for some Combine?

The NFL Scouting Combine opens Tuesday, bringing 336 college prospects and hundreds of NFL coaches, scouts and executives to Indianapolis for medical examinations, player interviews and on-field testing (beginning Friday).

"Every on-field drill and workout at Lucas Oil Stadium will be televised live on the NFL Network. More than 6,000 fans will be given free tickets to watch the prospects run around in tight shirts and shorts," Mark Gaughan writes in his analysis of why the event still matters. "Overblown? Without a doubt. But everyone involved acknowledges the combine still offers valuable information to NFL decision makers."

Combine prep: Breaking down the drills. Why do prospects run the 40-yard dash? How important are the medical evaluations? Which quarterbacks received invites?  How to watch the event.

Josh Rosen will throw: The UCLA quarterback plans to participate in passing drills, according to an NFL Network report, joining Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph and Wyoming's Josh Allen. USC's Sam Darnold has not made a decision yet.
