Saturday NFL Combine Open Thread: O-Line, Tight End Drills

New, comments
Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

The on-field portion of the NFL Scouting Combine workouts will take place today in Indianapolis, and you'll be able to see them all live on the NFL Network. Alternatively, if you don't have the NFL Network, you can watch everything at NFL.com.

The day will start with the offensive linemen and special teams players at 8 AM Central time. They'll be starting with the 40-yard dash at 8 AM, moving on to the positional skill drills at 9 AM, vertical leap and broad jump at 10 AM, and the three-cone and shuttle drills at 11 AM.

After that, the tight ends will take the field, doing things in the same sequence as above. The 40-yard dashes for the tight end group start at noon Central, followed by the positional skill drills at 1 PM, the vertical leap/broad jump at 2 PM, and the three-cone/shuttle drills at 3 PM.

If you're wondering what some of the drills are and/or what coaches are trying to evaluate with some of these drills, the folks at SB Nation's NFL hub have a nice stream set up that explains some of the different things that are going on. They have stories on the 40-yard dash, the vertical jump, the three-cone drill, and the shuttle run, all of which you'll see on today's broadcast. I believe that the tight ends will also go through the gauntlet, which is one of my personal favorite drills to watch.

The action from Indianapolis kicks off in about an hour or so, folks. If you're going to be watching the Combine, feel free to talk about what you see with everyone right here.
