Day 3 of the 2017 NFL Combine is complete and so is the event for the first round of college players.
In all, 330 NFL-hopefuls will make their way through Indianapolis this weekend to take part in the yearly NFL Scouting event.
The combine has wrapped for running backs, offensive linemen, and special teams players, who took part in the On-Field Workouts today. That includes former OSU back Chris Carson. After an impressive performance on the bench in Day 2, Carson performed extremely well in the On-Field Workouts today.
It started with the 40, which is widely considered the most important event for running backs. Carson’s was clocked at a 4.58 on his first attempt, putting him in the top-half of the day’s performances.

Carson ran a 4.60 on his second attempt.
In the day’s other two events Carson showed off his
#bodybyglass strength and athleticism. In the Broad Jump, Carson finished second with a jump of 10’10”, just one inch behind Tennessee’s Alvin Kamara. In the Vertical Jump, Carson finished with the fourth best performance, hitting 37-inches. Kamara of Tennessee topped that event as well at 39.5-inches.
Including his performance in the bench press, Carson finished in the Top-4 in three categories. Considering his reputation for bulldozing defenders at Oklahoma State, it’s not surprising to see Carson perform so well in feats of strength.
As for Oklahoma State’s two other Combine invites... based on the schedule, Defensive Tackle Vincent Taylor had measurements today before sitting down for interviews with NFL Teams. He will get his chance at the bench press Saturday, before taking part in the On-Field Drills Sunday.
Former Poke Cornerback Ashton Lampkin, OSU’s third Combine invite, arrived for registration today. He will go through measurements and testing Saturday, before the bench press Sunday and On-Field Workouts Monday.
