Defensive linemen and linebackers worked out on Sunday with the Combine reaching the final days.

Here are updates from Day Five at the 2016 NFL Combine:

This is a storyline that has really grown in recent years. We've heard about how quarterbacks aren't as pro ready because of spread offenses, well the same could be said for offensive linemen to a degree.
