The NFL's annual scouting combine has entered its third day of on-field drills in Indianapolis as defensive linemen and linebackers go through their workouts at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett, who's widely regarded as the best prospect of the 2017 draft, is already turning heads.

Garrett, 6-4 and 272 pounds, also posted a very impressive 41-inch vertical leap.
