**2. At least 28 players to work out at multiple positions. 


If while looking at lists of top prospects you notice players like USC linebacker Shaq Thompson listed at safety or Michigan wide receiver Devin Funchess at tight end or Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall at cornerback, it's not a mistake. They are among the 28 prospects working out at multiple positions this week in Indianapolis, according to

"Anything that they sent me for and invited me for, I'm going to come in and do what they want me to," Marshall said.

Hey, the more you can do, the better.

**3. Competition committee to look at more replay.


St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher spoke Friday on behalf of the NFL Competition Committee, providing an update on possible rules changes down the line. As a committee member, Fisher opened the possibility of more replay in the future as it relates to penalties, including pass interference. According to Fisher, the committee received the largest number of proposals in respect to instant replay that he could remember.

"We're just scratching the surface on it now," Fisher said. "We'll look at it in detail. To comment at this point would be very premature, but that will probably be one of the major topics as we resume our meetings ... next week.

"But you have two standards. To me, that's the biggest concern. You have an on-the-field, full-speed, bang-bang call by the official, let's say pass interference. Then you're going to go to replay, and you're going to go frame by frame by frame whether it is or not. I'm not so sure that's where we want to go with our game right now."
