Coming back to racing and attacking offensive line men went through the training sessions of the NFL combine on Friday, the first day of practice for the best prospects for the NFL 2019 draft.
Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay, ESPN's NFL draft experts, tell how the best backs and men in a row have gone, and the Scouts Inc. analyst Steve Muench breaks down the undersea prospects that are climbing the draft . We will also look at Day 2 of the training, as quarterbacks, receivers and tight end will participate in the tests and exercises on Saturday.

How the best prospects have gone | Get bigger
What to watch for Saturday
What was the biggest takeaway from workouts?
McShay: This is a group of lines more offensive than people think, and the interior is the best part. Garrett Bradbury from NC State can get stronger, but he had a good day. I do not know that a team would theoretically take a first center among line men, but it is the most NFL-free perspective of this group. Erik McCoy's launch time of 4.89 seconds was ridiculous. Chris Lindstrom has posted a very good 4.91. Andre Dillard of the state of Washington may have closed in the first round with a 4.92. And then Jawaan Taylor did a good workout. For a massive grip, her quick feet are really impressive. This group did not get the merit it deserves.
When: 25-27 April
Where is it: Nashville, Tennessee

kiper: We yet I do not know if there will be a return to the first round. Josh Jacobs of Alabama did not work due to a sore injury. None of the other backs moved into the discussion of the first round. Jacobs is my top-ranking tailback. But he needs to have a good pro day on March 19th. The teams will be watching closely.
Muench: David Montgomery of the Iowa State and Devin Singletary of Florida Atlantic – running back that we ranked among the top 65 in the standings – did not work well and were not cleaned during the exercises, while other backs have had strong demonstrations. Their production and tape speak for themselves, however. Expect both to be deployed by the NFL and repay the teams that take them regardless of where they come off the board.
