Sunday at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine will hold some great interest for Green Bay Packers fans. Today, the defensive linemen and linebackers will work out at Lucas Oil Stadium.
In the first group of linemen, Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett ran the fastest 40-yard dash at 4.64 seconds. Combined with a good performance on the bench press yesterday (33 reps), that should help to confirm what most draft analysts believe: that Garrett is worthy of the first overall pick in the draft.
Stay tuned today for the results from the second group of defensive linemen and the linebackers as the edge rusher group takes the field. Watch for many of the linemen to join the linebackers in the afternoon for various coverage drills as they look to project as 3-4 outside linebackers in the NFL.
We’ll keep you updated with workout results as they come in throughout the day on Sunday.
