A look ahead at Day 5: Getting things started

INDIANAPOLIS — There’s no rest for the weary. We’ve reached Day 5 of the NFL Scouting Combine, and many of the draft’s top prospects along the defensive line and at linebacker will work out at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The defensive line — split into two groups — will work out first, followed by a third group comprised entirely of linebackers. Highly rated prospects in the first group include Clemson DE Da’Quan Bowers, Iowa DE Adrian Clayborn, Alabama DT Marcell Dareus, Auburn DT Nick Fairley and Cal DE Cameron Jordan. The second group includes Oregon State DT Stephen Paea, North Carolina DE Robert Quinn, Wisconsin DE J.J. Watt and Temple DT Muhammad Wilkerson.

The combine’s final position group, defensive backs, will take part in the Wonderlic exam and psychological testing, followed by the bench press before their on-field workouts Tuesday.

I’d be remiss — and not in the good graces of my editors — if I failed to mention that you can watch all of the combine action at NFL.com/combine/live.
