INDIANAPOLIS -- Monday's crop of defensive front-seven talent -- particularly the linemen -- was as strong as the NFL scouting combine has seen in years. From the conversion ends showcasing their speed to the battles waged between the top prospects at defensive end (South Florida's Jason Pierre-Paul versus Georgia Tech's Derrick Morgan) and defensive tackle (Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh versus Oklahoma's Gerald McCoy), there was no shortage of storylines to follow inside Lucas Oil Stadium.
Which of the top pass-rushing prospects had the best days? Did one of the top defensive tackle prospects pull away from the pack? And which linebackers are rising and falling? Scouts Inc. answers those questions and more for ESPN Insiders.
