NFL Combine 2013: Schedule, TV info and preview

USA TODAY Sports

The defensive linemen and linebackers take the field Monday for their workout drills. Here's how you can catch the action.

The NFL Combine continues on Monday, and it's the defenders' turn to shine after the skill position players concluded their drills Sunday. The defensive linemen and linebackers finally get to hit the field and participate in their workout drills. Meanwhile, the defensive backs will be having their medical checks and going through the bench drills. They will also be interviewing with teams.

TV Coverage: As usual, NFL Network will be covering all of the action. Coverage begins at 9 a.m. EST and will be running until 7 p.m..

Players to watch for

--Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU. Ziggy has one of the most intriguing stories in the draft. An athletic freak of nature, he didn't even start playing football until two years ago (BYU recruited him for basketball). He's incredibly gifted and expected to blow the doors off his workout drills.

--Alec Ogletree, ILB, Georgia. Ogletree has a laundry list of off-field incidents, the most recent one being a DUI arrest from last week. He will need to impress in the workouts and convince teams that he's worth taking a chance on if he wants to be drafted in the first round.

--Manti Te'o, ILB, Notre Dame. Te'o said and did all the right things during his media interview Friday. One more solid workout on Monday and he can probably close the book on the Kekua saga for good.

--Damontre Moore, Texas A&M. Generally predicted to be drafted in the top 10 or 15, Moore left people scratching their heads when he only managed 12 reps on the bench press Sunday. He has to prove that poor showing was a fluke and not a harbinger of things to come Monday.

--Sam Montgomery and Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU. Montgomery shoved his foot straight down his throat when he admitted to taking games off and making bets with Mingo. Both men will need to answer serious questions about their work ethic over the next few weeks.
