2016 NFL Draft: Sunday's NFL Combine open thread

New, comments

Today features the on-field workouts for the defensive linemen and linebackers. Come talk about it with us!

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 we'll see the defensive linemen and linebackers perform.

In what is considered by many analysts to be the top defensive line class in the last several decades of the draft, all eyes will be on names like Robert Nkemdiche, Andrew Billings, and A'Shawn Robinson today. Expect a number of players to put in astonishing speed times or on-field drill performances.

The linebacker class is going to be hitting a somewhat more somber tone. The biggest news out of this week is the depressing news that came out of Jaylon Smith's medical evaluation, where doctors suggested that he would be out for all of the 2016 season and that his career itself could never match the expectations that his junior year set, thanks to the nerve damage in his leg. Add the absence of Myles Jack from workouts and the enviable top-end talent takes a bit of a hit. For Reggie Ragland and other inside linebackers like Kentrell Brothers, the three cone drill will be very important to see if they have the ability to drop into coverage with some skill.

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