What do you think, dummy?

 The NFL Scouting Combine is the classic meat market, but not only for players, who are timed, tested, prodded and cross-examined by 32 teams, but also for the media.

 You can tell when a reporter is working on a certain story because he or she will ask the same question to each player. Perhaps the most unoriginal was one person who kept asking players, “What do you hope to accomplish at the combine?”

 OU offensive tackle Trent Williams, who is from Longview and is trying to play his way into the top 10 of the draft, found the question trite.

 “What everybody hopes to accomplish,” he said abruptly. “Move up in the draft.”

 Williams also would not bite when another reporter asked what his strengths and weaknesses were.

 “I don’t know if I want to discuss my weaknesses on camera,” he said.

 At 6-4 1/2, 315 pounds, Williams would be appealing for the Cowboys. But there is no way he will be there when they pick at No. 27.
