Good morning, Chargers fans!

As we move from February into March this means two things to every football fan; the NFL Draft 2024 is getting closer and the NFL Scouting Combine has arrived. The world’s media have descended unto Indianapolis to bear witness to one of the sport’s most unique spectacles; the underwear olympics. The media availability for each player got started yesterday however the most important aspect for NFL fans got started yesterday as the testing got off to a flying start.

Day one of the NFL Scouting Combine’s testing period kicked off with the linebackers and defensive lineman. Each year it seems like records are broken and our understanding of the physical limitations of the human body is shattered alongside them. This year is no different as two edge rushers Dallas Turner and Chop Robinson, who both weighed in around 250lbs, managed to go sub-4.5 seconds in the 40 yard dash with Chop breaking a record with a 1.54 second 10 yard split which is the fastest ever for a prospect weighing over 250lbs.

Here are the full testing results for the linebackers, edge rushers, defensive ends and defensive tackles:
