Linebackers and defensive linemen will work out today at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, with coverage on NFL Network beginning at 9 a.m.

Draft Countdown's Scott Wright, one of my favorite draft analysts and annually one of the most accurate mock drafters in the business, had provided position-by-position recaps of the weekend workouts. After the jump, some of the highlights from Wright's impressions.

When I do these I am going to focus on players who seem as if they may be within reach for the Giants.

Offensive Line

Wright loved what he saw from Stanford guard David DeCastro, who Wright said "looked extremely polished in the positional drills."

Wright was also impressive by Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn, saying "it's becoming more and more likely that teams will start looking at Glenn as an offensive tackle prospect. If teams ultimately decide that Glenn can play outside in the NFL the first round goes from a possibility to a probability."

Tight End

Despite choosing not to run the 40-yard dash, Wright said Georgia's Orson Charlies "certainly made a strong case for why he should be the first tight end off the board."

Wright was impressed by Louisiana-Lafayette's Ladarius Green, saying "don't be surprised if Green gets pushed up draft boards and winds up being selected in the top three rounds."

Clemson's Dwayne Allen might have hurt himself with his performance this weekend. Wright called Allen the "biggest disappointment" of the tight end group and said he might slide to the third round.

Wide Receiver

With Mario Manningham apparently on his way out the door in free agency you -- and the Giants -- might be interested in the players at this position.

Wright said Stephen Hill of Georgia Tech is a player to watch after running a blazing 4.36 40-yard dash, writing that Hill has "emerged as a legitimate Top 100 possibility."

Mohamed Sanu of Rutgers ran a disappointing 4.67 40, and Wright said his performance "clearly left something to be desired."

Running Back

Wright was, as expected, impressed by Lamar Miller of Miami and David Wilson of Virginia Tech. He added that Florida's Chris Rainey also performed well and could be a Top 100 pick.
