Running backs, offensive linemen and special teams players hit the field Friday at Lucas Oil Stadium to get the on-field work at the 2017 NFL Combine kicked off.

For the most part, the excitement factor was minimal until the running backs got their turn to shine. But one offensive lineman you may not have heard of is really starting to make some noise.

Though the drills at the combine typically drum up more hype than substance, there were a handful of noteworthy developments to highlight.
