The 2013 NFL Scouting Combine gets underway today in Indianapolis. Kickers, special-teamers, offensive linemen and tight ends will undergo medical exams, orientation and interviews in downtown Indianapolis.

Don't expect the Philadelphia Eagles to make any seismic changes to the preliminary draft board based on what goes down over the next few days at Lucas Oil Stadium.

When asked in an interview on the team's website how much the said board will change over the next week, Roseman told Dave Spadaro that he hopes it doesn't much

"It really shouldn't change drastically," Roseman told Spadaro, per Pro Football Talk. "I think some of the problems you get into is you get into the Senior Bowl, you get into the Combine and all of a sudden your board changes drastically. It's got to be back on the tape."

The Combine is fun and intriguing, but this is a healthy reminder that it has major limitations.
