We’re finally here: Friday marks the first day of the on-field athletic testing at the 2018 NFL Combine. It’s an exciting day of watching potential NFL players run around in their underwear, completing various workouts and positional drills that will hopefully help evaluators and draft analysts get a clearer view of their abilities.
Today’s groups feature the special teams players (including the kickers and long snappers), the offensive linemen, and the running backs. The Falcons will likely be paying particularly close attention to the OL class, but they may also be interested in an RB with Tevin Coleman’s contract expiring after this season.
Below, you’ll find all the important information you’ll need to watch and enjoy today’s Combine coverage. I personally find the online coverage easier to manage, but there is also a TV stream on NFL Network.
