He said "Combine?"  I said "Watt?" Former Wisconsin defensive end J.J. Watt had a standout performance at the NFL Combine. Enough to probably improve his draft stock. (Bucky's 5th Quarter)

His name is Prince. Former Nebraska players Prince Amukamara and Roy Helu erased the doubts in many scouts minds by having impressive showings at the NFL Combine. (Corn Nation)

There's a possibility but no chance. The Detroit Lions are reportedly interested in drafting Amukamara and reuniting him with former Defensive Rookie of the Year (and former Husker) Ndamukong Suh. But it looks like Amukamara's Combine performance will mean he gets drafted way before the Lions are on the board with the thirteenth pick. (The Detroit News)
