Yesterday the running backs and offensive linemen showed their stuff, but now it's time for the QBs and receivers to take to the field.

Greetings, Raider fans! An exciting first day of combine action is in the books, as the running backs and offensive linemen drills are done. Ezekiel Elliott, Kenyan Drake and Keith Marshall really stood out amongst the running backs while Laremy Tunsil, despite not running the 40, has scouts agog at his strength and agility. He is a near lock to be the first overall pick, and he certainly looks the part of a generational talent a la Orlando Pace or Walter Jones.

But today we take a look at the big guns, with the quarterbacks taking the field including top prospects Carson Wentz, Jared Goff and Paxton Lynch. Look out for Oregon's Vernon Adams, who despite his diminutive size fits the Russell Wilson mold and could warrant a choice in the middle rounds.

Top receivers today will include Ole Miss' Laquon Treadwell, who will not be running the 40 until his Pro Day but will take part in other drills, as well as TCU's Josh Doctson and Baylor's Corey Coleman. Treadwell is a certain top-ten pick but the other two are second-round types for now unless they flash something special. A huge 40 time could vault either one into first-round consideration, as both have been incredibly productive in their careers.

Tight ends will also take the field today, and watch out for Arkansas' Hunter Henry, who could go in the late first round. He is as close to a Gronk as you will find in this draft.
