A few familiar faces roamed OU's indoor practice facility Wednesday, among the 41 coaches and scouts representing 29 NFL teams. (Oakland, St. Louis and Tampa Bay were not in attendance, according to OU.)
Pittsburgh great “Mean” Joe Greene was on hand as a Steelers scout. He spoke at length with several players, including end Frank Alexander.
Former Sooners coach Gary Gibbs, now Kansas City's linebackers coach, worked out OU's linebackers.
Former Minnesota head coach Mike Tice, now Chicago's offensive line coach, was present, as was former Denver head coach and current New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

Several members of Winchester's family attended the event.
