2014 NFL Combine results: Top offensive linemen, tight end performers

Steve Dykes

The first day of on-field workouts is a wrap. We've got the top performers among offensive linemen and tight ends.

The first day of drills has come to a close, which means we've got some rankings for offensive linemen and tight ends. There were some seriously crazy performances, with Taylor Lewan and Greg Robinson putting up some of the craziest with 4.87 and 4.92 40s respectively. The 40-yard dash holds little value for offensive linemen, but it is still interesting to see these behemoths running so fast. I need to run a 40 so I can see where I measure up. I don't even know if I could break the 6-second mark at this point.

One of the more interesting tight ends on the day was Oregon's Colt Lyerla. He was No. 3 in the 40, and No. 2 in the broad jump. It comes down to tape, but for Lyerla it also comes down to his off-field issues. This past season, he was suspended at Oregon, and then quit the team. A few weeks later he was arrested for cocaine possession. He pled guilty and received two years probation. He spoke about the issues in his press conference, but actions speak louder than words. It remains to be seen if he'll even be drafted, but he would be an interesting one.
