12:13 p.m.: Oh, hey, we have broad jump results.
Here are the top five for offensive linemen:
11:54 a.m.: And here come the second runs.
And that’s a wrap on the offensive line 40-yard dashes.
We’ll give you the top official times once they’re released. Isidora and Lamp both impressed.
Isidora is 6-foot-3, 306 pounds and is rated as a fourth- or fifth-round guard.
Lamp is 6-foot-4, 309 pounds and currently is projected to be drafted in the first or second round at guard.
11:33 a.m.: It’s time for the second group of offensive linemen.

OK, so I lied. There were two groups of offensive linemen. I still expect there to be two groups of running backs, but I’ve lied to you before, so I understand if you don’t trust me now.
The second group’s first run has concluded. We’ll track the second runs next, and then we’ll move on to the running backs.
10:40 a.m.: The second group of offensive linemen should be running soon. There will be three groups of offensive linemen and probably two groups of running backs.
As exciting it is to see a bunch of 300-pounders run 40 yards, we’re much more excited to see the backs.
10:17 a.m.: The times we tracked are unofficial. Here are the top 10 official times.
Dunker is a fifth- or sixth-round guard prospect. He’s 6-foot-4, 318 pounds, so running a sub-5-second 40 is pretty damn impressive.
Braden running a 5.05 at 6-foot-6, 329 pounds is pretty crazy too. He’s a seventh-round prospect.
9:35 a.m.: Now let’s track their second attempts.
Collins’ 4.78 was pretty unbelievable in the first run. He’s 6-foot-4, 295 pounds.
Collins clearly was the most athletic of the bunch. He came into the combine as a projected undrafted free agent. Teams likely will take a second look after seeing how athletic he is. The 10-yard splits are even more important than the 40s for offensive linemen. Bolles helped himself with his 1.71-second 10-yard split. He’s 6-foot-5, 297 pounds and projects as a first- or second-round pick.
9:25 a.m.: Utah offensive lineman Isaac Asiata kicked things off with a 5.35-second 40-yard dash and 1.85-second 10-yard split.
Here’s the rest of the first group of offensive linemen:
Erik Austell, Charleston Southern: 5.21/1.80
Zach Banner, USC: 5.58/1.92
Adam Bisnowaty, Pitt: 5.23/1.86
Garrett Bolles, Utah: 4.96/1.71
Ben Braden, Michigan: 5.05/1.79
Aviante Collins, TCU: 4.78/1.69
Ethan Cooper, Indiana (PA): 5.38/1.87
Julie’n Davenport, Bucknell: 5.48/1.91
Dion Dawkins, Temple: 5.11/1.80
Jessamen Dunker, Tennessee State: 5.05/1.80
Pat Elflein, Ohio State: 5.32/1.88
Jermaine Eluemunor, Texas A&M: 5.17/1.84
Dan Feeney, Indiana: 5.28/1.82
9 a.m. ET: The real fun of the NFL Scouting Combine starts today.
Running backs and offensive linemen will run through drills all morning, and we’ll have a much better idea of which players will draw interest from the New England Patriots.
Stay here as we track 40-yard dash times throughout the morning and afternoon.
The top running back prospects are Florida State’s Dalvin Cook, LSU’s Leonard Fournette, Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey and Tennessee’s Alvin Kamara.
The top offensive line prospects are Wisconsin’s Ryan Ramczyk, Alabama’s Cam Robinson, Indiana’s Dan Feeney, Western Kentucky’s Forrest Lamp and LSU’s Ethan Pocic.
