There are 8 players for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish that are down in Indianapolis for the 2019 NFL Combine. With the combine comes an endless stream of news and tidbits about players from all over the nation. OFD Editor Jude Seymour always does a great job of tracking all of this, and even though he may not be tracking over 200 mock drafts (seriously, he has done that before) he is still paying close attention to what’s out there.
Below, you will find a series of tweets from Jude (@andrewwinn). It should get you all caught up for the workouts.
Clearly Jerry Tillery has the talent for the first round. Will teams continue to be scared by his big brain? Remember... he played 3⁄4 of the season with a torn labrum. I didn’t think it was possible to love him more — but I do.

Quenton Nelson is a NFL Draft LEGEND.
On @GMFB, the panel picked one person currently playing that they thought would be considered an all-time great in 50 years.@PSchrags picked Quenton Nelson.— Jude (@andrewwinn) February 27, 2019
High praise for the former #NDFB guard now playing for the Indianapolis Colts.
Alex Bars was well on his way to a great season in 2018 until the knee injury. The big question here is when an NFL team finally says SCREW IT I’M TAKING THE BAR. A 100% healthy Bars will be a huge value pick for a team.
