Monday’s on-field portion of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine featured the draft’s best defensive line and linebacker prospects as the depth of the draft continued to prove itself in workouts. While no prospect was able to officially record a sub-4.5 second 40-yard dash, there was plenty of speed and athleticism on display alongside a few disappointments.

North Carolina (6-6) started the season 1-5 before winning five of its last six games to become bowl-eligible and face Cincinnati (9-3) in Saturday’s Belk Bowl (3:20 p.m, ESPN). Cincinnati enters the game on a hot streak of its own, having won six of their last seven games.

North Carolina has made a habit of producing NFL prospects without having the onfield success to accompany their talent. That said, the headline player in this matchup, tight end Eric Ebron, has caught 55 passes for 895 yards and three touchdowns this season, proving himself as a player any NFL quarterback should want to have in their arsenal of weapons.

The 2014 senior crop of defensive ends is full of hybrid type players who may project to play 4-3 defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker at the next level.

The class doesn’t have any sure-fire top ten players but there are plenty of players with starter upside.

BIG 10 / BIG 12 / SEC / PAC 12 / ACC / BIG EAST / OTHER FBS / FCS

Coming into this game many fans were excited to see WR Aaron Mellette take on UNC after he tortured Vandy last season but it was all for not as UNC crushed Elon going up by more than 30 in the first half. This was by far one of the worst games I’ve ever seen Mellette play and I look for him to bounce back quickly. On the other side of the coin DT Sylvester Williams was dominant and in rare form.
