A look ahead at Day 6

The first group of defensive backs prepare to run the 40-yard dash Tuesday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

INDIANAPOLIS — It’s Day 6 of the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine, and defensive backs will take center stage on the final day of workouts at Lucas Oil Stadium.

We’re looking forward to what we expect to be some very fast 40-yard dash times from the 56 cornerbacks and safeties on the field. Among the bigger names in the first group to run the 40 are Nebraska CB Prince Amukamara, Florida SS Ahmad Black, Oklahoma FS Quinton Carter, Clemson CB Marcus Gilchrist, Miami CB Brandon Harris and Temple FS Jaiquawn Jarrett.

The fastest combine 40 time among cornerbacks since 2000 is 4.27 seconds by Houston’s Stanford Routt in 2005. Arizona State’s Josh Barrett has the best among safeties with a 4.34 run in 2008.

Don’t forget that you can watch the day unfold live on NFL.com/combine/live.
