The defensive backs head out on the field after the media room gets the flashy offensive players — quarterbacks, receivers, and running backs.

Thursday at the 2024 NFL Combine was the first day of on-field workouts, as the front seven players ran their drills at Lucas Oil Stadium. On Friday, workouts continue on as two more groups of players head under the roof to perform their drills.

The defensive backs should draw plenty of eyeballs from Green Bay Packers fans, as the team has an unquestioned need at safety and at least some level of need at cornerback as well. That group will work out today, as will the tight ends, a day after players at those positions spent time in the media room.

Those workouts again will get underway at 3:00 PM Eastern Time, with a live broadcast of the drills being shown on NFL Network.

In the morning, however, the biggest and highest-profile players in this draft class will be in the media room as the quarterbacks, wide receivers, and running backs make their way to the podiums. Today’s group will include the players widely expected to go in the top four or five picks, with Caleb Williams, Drake Maye, Jayden Daniels, Marvin Harrison, Jr., and Malik Nabers all scheduled to speak at some point today.

For the Packers and APC, running back will be a position of focus, however. Keep it here at APC to follow along with the interviews in the morning, followed by the workouts later on this afternoon.
