Prospects will be measured in for height and weight, as well as other specific measurements, like hand-size, and then will go through the combine. They will have a choice to bench reps at either 185 pounds or 225 pounds. Then they will run a 40, 20-yard shuttle and L-cone, and also get tested in the vertical jump.

After the testing events, the players will go into position drills, and the event will finish off with the most popular period - the one-on-ones.

Scout.com will be on hand to give you all the top-10's in each event, a combine recap, and also interviews with the top prospects on hand.
