The on-field portion of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine got underway Saturday morning in Indianapolis with workouts by the offensive linemen and tight ends.

The overall athleticism of offensive linemen has seemingly increased each year, and the 2014 class continued that trend with its impressive showing today.

The tight ends were underwhelming as a whole, with a mix of positive and negative notes to surround each player as none of them were able to put together a complete day.

Following my observations, you can also find a few additional notes from BBD editor Dan Hope, along with a link to full combine results.

The goal for Alabama (11-1) this season was to win their third consecutive National Championship, but a memorable loss to Auburn cost them that opportunity, leaving them to settle for facing Oklahoma (10-2) in the Sugar Bowl (Thursday, 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).

Alabama has consistently produced NFL talent, and this year is no different. Two Alabama defenders, C.J. Mosley, and Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix, will likely be among the first players drafted at their respective positions in May. Quarterback AJ McCarron will be playing his final game for Alabama, looking to prove to scouts he can be as successful a professional quarterback as he has been a college quarterback.

For Oklahoma, two long-time starters in center Gabe Ikard and cornerback Aaron Colvin bring their college careers to an end as they look to solidify their draft stock against Alabama.

There will be no shortage of NFL talent on the field in Saturday’s college football matchup between Alabama and Texas A&M. Alabama has been an NFL factory in recent years, while Texas A&M features perhaps the most notable college football player in the world in Johnny Manziel, one of the many big-time prospects in this game.
