We've got a Super Bowl champion crowned and the Indianapolis Colts are on the clock. Now comes a period of milestone dates, when everyone waits for the next time that they can obsess over the NFL again before the season starts. Free agency, the 2012 NFL Draft, early organized team activities and, of course, the NFL Combine is next on the docket. The NFL doesn't sleep.

Detroit has some big names entering the NFL ranks this season and, as such, those names are among the hundreds of players who have been invited to the combine to compete in position drills and things of that nature. The combine can make or break your draft stock, with scouts all over having varying opinions on just how much each drill matters to each position. One thing that you can't argue is the fact that it's one of a prospect's best opportunities to work with folks that could be deciding their fate in the near future. Scary and thrilling stuff!

Now, for a list of players from this region:
