The third day of on-field workouts at the 2018 Combine features the defensive line and linebackers.

This could be a very important day for the Cowboys. We know they need help in the middle of the defensive line at the 1-tech position. Stephen Jones has said he won’t take a “pure” 1-tech early, but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t use a second- or third-round pick on one. And who knows, if one of the guys in the first round offers enough 3-tech skills, along with being a big body, he might be tempted. They will have a chance to display their athleticism and quickness, something more associated with the 3-tech spot. Can Vita Vea or Da’Ron Payne make Stephen a believer?

Then there is linebacker. If Anthony Hitchens signs elsewhere, the position becomes a true position of need. Roquan Smith, Tremaine Edmunds, Rashaan Evans, and Leighton Vander Esch are all names that have been linked to the Cowboys as potential draft picks.

Today is a good day to watch the combine.

This is an open thread to discuss the combine.
