The quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers took center stage at the NFL Combine on Sunday, lighting up Lucas Oil Stadium with blistering 40 times and impressive displays of athleticism throughout the workouts. Jake Locker impressed, Christian Ponder boosted his draft stock and Cam Newton showed off in the measurable drills, but was inconsistent passing. On Monday, though, the combine gets defensive, with linemen and linebackers hitting the field for drills.
Stephen Paea already gave scouts a taste of what's to come, breaking the combine record on the bench with 49 repetitions at 225 pounds. With a loaded crop of defensive linemen in the 2011 NFL Draft -- including Nick Fairley and Da'Quan Bowers -- Monday is a day to watch as the big guys go through workouts at the combine. The defensive backs are also in Indianapolis, going through preparations ahead of their Tuesday morning workout.
Here's the schedule for Monday's events.
Defensive linemen and linebackers
Workout (timing, stations, skill drills), Departure
NFLPA Meeting, Psych Tests, Interviews
It all gets underway at 6 a.m. as the first group of defensive linemen run the 40-yard dash. Coverage is scheduled to run until just after 12:15 p.m., with NFL Network broadcasting it all live. NFL.com will also stream the entire combine here.
