Welcome to the Combine, Day 4

INDIANAPOLIS -- We're here at Lucas Oil Stadium for the fourth day of the 2011 NFL Combine. With 39 head coaches and general managers having been interviewed over the first three days, the media schedule will solely feature the prospects in the draft.

Today's focus from a Patriots perspective will be on defensive backs and linebackers; both position groups will be made available to the media throughout the course of the day. UCLA linebacker Akeem Ayers and Georgia outside linebacker Justin Houston are two targets we hope to speak with.

Locally, Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich is expected to conduct a media session.

  • Quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs will go through workouts today (timing, stations, and skill drills) before departing this evening.

  • Defensive linemen and linebackers have the bench press.

  • Defensive backs go through the medical evaluations and will meet with media members.
