Excerpt: "Thursday and Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine is always a whirlwind. The action on the field hasn't started, but the majority of the NFL's head coaches and general managers speak to the media over the two-day span.

It's a lot to take in. We've been cranking all day at Around the League, and here's what we learned Thursday on Day 1: The buzzword in New York around quarterback Mark Sanchez (http://www.nfl.com/player/marksanchez/79858/profile) is"competition".

This is a topic that isn't going away. You can't believe everything that you hear at the combine, but my gut says quarterback Nick Foles (http://www.nfl.com/player/nickfoles/2532842/profile)likely will remain with the Philadelphia Eagles (http://www.nfl.com/teams/philadelphiaeagles/profile?team=PHI). Both the Eagles (http://www.nfl.com/teams/philadelphiaeagles/profile?team=PHI) and Chiefs (http://www.nfl.com/teams/kansascitychiefs/profile?team=KC)' representatives pointed in that direction."
