The New England Patriots coach is in Nashville to run the Rock & Roll Half Marathon, and made time to oversee a private workout from Vanderbilt offensive lineman Wesley Johnson. It not only speaks to Belichick's time management, but of his organization's thoroughness in evaluating draft prospects, as well. After all, it's not as though Johnson is being considered in the same breath as the draft's elite tackle prospects. He is a slightly undersized but exceptionally athletic tackle who excels in the open field with his ability to pull and lead stretch plays, and figures to be a third-day pick.

And one of the NFL's top head coaches is checking him out personally. The workout was Friday; the half-marathon on Saturday.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reported Belichick's plan via Twitter.

Alabama coach Nick Saban, who coached as an NFL assistant under Belichick, has noted Belichick's multi-tasking efforts in the past, including in-house lunches to allow his coaching staffs to work uninterrupted through the lunch hour. Both are masters at getting a lot done in a short amount of time.

Now, what can Bill get accomplished for the draft while he actually running 13 miles?
