3. MARKELLE MARTIN'S AND JOSH COOPER'S PARTICIPATION

Martin and Cooper both went to the combine but did not run the 40 or participate in position drills. Martin had a knee injury, but Cooper's reason for not participating is unknown. Martin is projected mid-to-late round pick, while Cooper is a borderline draft prospect.

4. WELCOME, LEVY ADCOCK AND GRANT GARNER

It's a bit surprising to think that All-American offensive linemen Levy Adcock and Grant Garner haven't yet participated in a postseason public workout or showcase for NFL personnel. Neither was invited to the combine. Adcock, who is projected to go in the middle rounds, was selected to play in the Senior Bowl but missed it because of a knee injury. Garner is a borderline draft prospect.

5. PEOPLE-WATCHING

OSU, like most major programs, usually draws a lot of NFL personnel to its Pro Day. But more higher-ranking officials are expected to attend Friday, largely because of Blackmon and Weeden. Word is one team is sending virtually its entire coaching and front-office staff.
