2016 NFL Draft: Saturday's NFL Combine open thread

New, comments

Today features the on-field workouts for skill positions and measurements for defensive backs. We're talking about it in here!

The 2016 NFL Combine continues today, starting at 9:00 AM with a new set of on-field workouts. You can view it live on the NFL Network or at the NFL's Combine hub, starting with the 40 yard dash. Today will be a look at quarterbacks, wideouts, and tight ends.

The big story with the quarterbacks this year will be the throwing drills. For the first time in a while, every quarterback is expected to participate in these drills, and that will give juniors like Jared Goff and Paxton Lynch a chance to show off in front of scouts. For the "athletic" quarterbacks like Dak Prescott, Vernon Adams, and others, they can use the speed drills to showcase that extra element of their game.

With wide receivers, the big disappointment will be the lack of a 40 time from Laquon Treadwell, who is arguably the top receiver in the draft class. Not to worry, however, as this class has plenty of athletes. TCU's Kolby Listenbee is a nationally renowned sprinter and considered a threat to break the 40 yard dash record. Size receivers like DeRunnya Wilson and Keyarris Garrett have a chance to show their agility. And of course, drills like the gauntlet will demonstrate how effective a receivers hands are.

This isn't a big tight end group, with only sixteen names participating. But it's a good group of sizes; thirteen of them are at least 6'4", and eight measure at least 6'5". There are a few rumored excellent athletes in this group: Jerell Adams and Beau Sandland among them. Is any of these names a potential game-changer?

Here are the measurements that were taken from those players earlier this week, courtesy of Joe Marino at Draft Breakdown.
