8 a.m.: The NFL combine drills have reached their halfway point, and on Day 5, we’ll see defensive linemen and linebackers going through speed, agility, explosion and positional drills. Some of the biggest freak athletes in this draft line up at defensive end and tackle, and we should see some record times from these players. BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah ran track before switching to football two years ago. At 6-foot-6, 270 pounds, it’s hard to know his 40 time, but it will likely turn some heads. Dion Jordan is another freak athlete. He’s a 6-foot-6, 248-pound linebacker that spent time in the slot covering wide receivers while at Oregon. He’s having shoulder surgery after the combine, but he’s set to take part in all speed and agility drills. Among the big boys at defensive tackle, Sheldon Richardson could have a huge day. He’s almost 300 pounds, and he looked comfortable dropping back into coverage during his time at Missouri. Sharrif Floyd of Florida is another interior lineman who could have a big day. At linebacker, all eyes will be on Manti Te’o, but players like Arthur Brown and Alec Ogletree will test better. Rutgers linebacker Khaseem Greene is another player to watch. He, like Ogletree, is a former safety. Stay tuned here for all the the combine updates and news throughout the day.
