NFL: Combine Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The 2020 NFL Scouting Combine is almost here. The offensive prospects have already arrived in Indy with measurements already known for the quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends. Soon we’ll have the official measurements for the offensive linemen and running backs.

In our last draft podcast we took a look at how to watch the offensive position groups on the field at the Combine. This time around we’re going to be taking a look at the defensive position groups, as well as discussing some of the news to come out of Indy. With the New York Giants in need of help and depth at almost every position on defense, these are position groups worth watching.
