    Dee Milliner won't compete in the bench press and will undergo surgery on a torn labrum in his right shoulder after the combine.

    "Here we go again, another L.A. movie star quarterback who needs his own day to throw," said a veteran scout.

    Just an aside to the Allen conversation, Stedman Bailey is the #2 receiver on my board behind Patterson, and struggle with even having to put him there.
    You turned me onto Stedman Bailey a long, long time ago. I put him #1 on my receiver board on no later than 12/24/2012...but once I caught up on all of the Cordarrelle tape (around 1/8/2013), I put him #1 which bumped Stedman down to #2. So that's also how I have it right now, Cordarrelle Patterson #1 and Stedman Bailey #2.

    Keenan Allen isn't even necessarily my #3 right now. I'm leaning toward Markus Wheaton for that spot. I really do see a Santonio Holmes there, except with DeSean Jackson's pure speed. I have a lot of respect for Quinton Patton, Terrance Williams and Keenan Allen, and those are probably the three that are duking it out for #4, #5 and #6. And Allen may be closer to #6 than #4.

    As for Denard Robinson, I respect your gut feel on the catching. You could easily be right. I saw enough in the route running at the Senior Bowl though (natural ability not necessarily refinement) that I'd have to stick with him at wide receiver and just see if it worked out.

    He's got like 1200 throws on tape. I don't think the scouts need to see him throw at the Combine to make a judgment there.

    It still confuses me that there's such strong disagreement on his arm strength. I've clocked his arm on a lot of different throws at a lot of different distances. It's not quite Ryan Tannehill, but it's a lot closer to Ryan Tannehill than it is Kellen Moore which is an absurd comparison I recently heard sourced from an anonymous general manager.

    Whoever those two guys are, are either idiots, or they're having fun with the media. I'm leaning toward the latter.

    This is way I've been saying all along. And a red zone weapon is what we're really lacking. If we draft Allen then I feel a lot better about signing Wallace who really presents little threat in the red zone

    Stedman Bailey's unique ability to play bigger than his size is found in the measurements.

    He measured in at 5' 10 1/4 " -- 193 pounds -- with 32 3/4" arms -- and nearly 10" hands. Those are the arm/hand measurements that are pretty standard for a 6'2" receiver.
