INDIANAPOLIS – The RCA Dome was noticeably quieter Monday as the 2005 NFL scouting combine started winding down. As of 9 a.m., all 333 prospects had been measured, poked and prodded by physicians and administered the league-standard taped interviews. Those that elected to participate in the 225-pound bench press also had done so. The rest of the day was dedicated to tight ends and defensive linemen running 40-yard dashes and completing their agility and position drills.
