Colt at 207 lbs, RGM at the Combine

From Scout.com's live combine blog for Friday:
12:16 p.m. - After a controversial week in Mobile where he weighed in at just 185 pounds, Hawaii QB Colt Brennan measured in at an impressive 6-foot-2, 207 pounds today in Indianapolis. He was on a strict weight-gain program and has been working hard taking snaps under center and his five and seven step drop back. Brennan was open and honest with the media regarding his past and stated, “I have nothing to hide.”
Right on Colt. From the same blog, RGM discusses his abilities:
11:44 a.m. - Hawaii wide receiver Ryan Grice-Mullen said that one of his selling points to NFL teams is the fact that he's been playing since he was a freshman, so he has plenty of game experience. When it comes to rating himself on a scale of 1 to 10 at reading defenses, he said he thinks he's a 9 or a 10. He said at Hawaii, there could be five different routes out of one play, so he had to be able to make the right decisions based on what he saw from the defense.
Be sure to check the Scout.com link throughout the day, as it'll probably be updated continuously. You can also visit NFL.com's Combine page, AOL's Fanhouse Combine page, and numerous others for more news.

Speaking of which, Michael David Smith of AOL Fanhouse has an entry on Ryan Grice-Mull(en)ins.
But what Grice-Mullen lacks in size, he makes up for in intelligence. He talked about the way the offense run by former Hawaii coach June Jones prepared him for the NFL because it has such a great emphasis on the receivers' ability to read defenses.

"From Day 1 in this offense, you don't see the field unless you can read defenses," Grice-Mullen said.
RGM also talks about the criticism of Colt:
"He's been criticized since he got to Hawaii," Grice-Mullen said of Brennan, "I definitely think he will succeed because of his heart and his love for the game."
UPDATE: The Advertiser has an article about Colt Brennan's day at the combine.
After undergoing the physical examinations, Brennan met with reporters in the Indianapolis Convention Center. He sat in front of a round table, wearing a gray NFL-issued sweatshirt.

He answered questions about his legal problems when he was a Colorado freshman, defended his label as a "system" quarterback, and spoke of his preparation for Sunday's passing drills. He said he will not participate in the running drills or weight-lifting sessions.

Asked why he was so candid, Brennan said, "I've got nothing to hide. ... I want to tell my story."
