2016 NFL Combine: Weigh-ins and more for the first batch of prospects start today

Here's your open thread for the day.

After a really uneventful first day, we get our first round of measurements and commentary on just how big everyone's hands are at the NFL Scouting Combine. At last!

Today will see teams interview, check measurements, and more for running backs, offensive linemen and special teamers. The Falcons won't have much interest in running backs and won't be chasing special teams all that aggressively, I'd wager, but I'd view the team selecting an offensive lineman or two as a virtual lock, so keep a close eye on that group today. Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends will also arrive today, meaning you'll see that group get started on Thursday.

Don't forget that Dan Quinn is also taking over the team's Twitter account today, if you're interested in that. Combine schedule below.
