Posted Feb 26, 2014

Enjoy a fool-proof guide on what took place at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine.

Did you just get back from a week-long stay in Hawaii? Do you not have NFL Network or the internet or even social media? Do you like getting the Cliff’s Notes version of football news?

If you answered “Yes” to any of the previous questions and you are a fan of the San Francisco 49ers, this story is for you.

The 2014 NFL Scouting Combine is long gone. But that doesn’t mean you can’t relive the week in all of its glory.

Here is what you missed if you forgot to pay attention last week.
