The 2013 NFL Combine saw the glamor positions run through their workouts and drills on Sunday, as quarterback, running backs and wide receivers were on the field doing their thing. The Combine is coming down the home stretch now, with defensive linemen and linebackers working out on Monday, and defensive backs closing things down on Tuesday.
The defensive linemen will get things going with a chance to show off some of their pass rush moves. Their workouts involve working around dummies as a coach simulates a snap. Personnel people will be looking to see what kind of first step the player gets, as well as the speed with which they get around to the quarterback.
The linebackers get a chance to show off how they can work in coverage, as they work in the pass-drop and hip rotation drill. This is of particular importance for defensive ends expecting to make the switch from the line to 3-4 outside linebacker. The drill has the players start in a back pedal, and then begin moving in different directions as designated by a coach. They then wrap it up by breaking toward the quarterback and getting a ball thrown at them.
