The first day of on-the-field drills and workouts got underway on Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine. As the first group of arrivals back on Wednesday, placekickers, offensive linemen and tight ends all conducted their 40-yard dashes in Indianapolis.
Of those groups, the offensive linemen and tight ends have wrapped things up and recorded their official times. The fastest thus far is A.C. Leonard, a tight end out of Tennessee State. Leonard's 40 time was 4.50 seconds, a full tenth of a second higher than Eric Ebron of North Carolina. The top five was rounded out by Colt Lyerla, Trey Burton and Jace Amaro.
Among offensive linemen, Michigan's Taylor Lewan led the way with 4.87, though obviously running the 40 isn't exactly the most important thing for offensive linemen and not everyone participated. Below, we have the top five 40-yard dash times for offensive linemen and tight ends:
