INDIANAPOLIS -- Sunday is the biggest day here at the NFL Scouting Combine. Media availability continues, while the skill-position players hit the field. Here's what we learned:
"My best friend right now is honesty," Mathieu said.
Mathieu is short and not particularly fast. But NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock still believes Mathieu should find a home in the NFL as a slot cornerback.
» Everywhere I go in Indianapolis, I hear someone say the Alex Smith-to-Kansas City Chiefs deal is all but done. (Now CBS is reporting a deal is "effectively done" for Smith but won't name the team.) Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said in a text message to The Florida Times-Union that it's "not us" who has a deal in place. NFL.com's Albert Breer reported a high-ranking San Francisco 49ers source says he's not aware of a deal being done. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport says the Chiefs have showed the most interest. Mr. RapSheet also hears the Chiefs are particularly high on offensive tackle Luke Joeckel as a No. 1 overall pick candidate.
» Three players -- West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin, Texas wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and Auburn running back Onterio McCalebb -- took aim at Chris Johnson's official 40 record Sunday. Goodwin wound up with a time of 4.27 seconds officially; Austin and McCalebb wound up seeing their unofficial times get downgraded to 4.34. Austin is a matchup nightmare who could sneak into the first round.
» Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner will need shoulder surgery after the combine. He will perform his drills other than the bench press.
