Post Good answer?
I'm not sure if he has a great memory, but I think this is a very smart answer.

Without knowing everything about each player, from medical history to criminal background, an NFL team isn't as comfortable pouring millions into a person's pockets. Sometimes, the testing can get ridiculous. Here's one of the lesser-known stories from past years:

When Vikings running back Adrian Peterson attended the Combine in 2007, Browns coach Eric Mangini (then with the Jets) introduced Peterson to a roomful of Jets employees. Once Peterson shook everyone's hands, Mangini asked Peterson to recite all of their names as a test of his memory.

``All I know is, you're Eric Mangini,'' Peterson said. ``And you're the boss.''

As far as improvisation goes -- which might be more important than memory at his position -- Peterson should have passed with flying colors. Because of stories like that, Teppers says he's prepared for whatever tests they might throw his way.

That's not to say every question will get answered. As the microscope on these draft prospects zooms closer into their lives, players are becoming more cautious about what they reveal and when, specifically when it comes to their athletic ability. ... ction.html
