Today features the quarterbacks working out on the field.  It looks like pretty much everyone except for Blaine Gabbert will throw today.  It will be interesting to see who looks good in this environment.  I would expect them all to look pretty good because they are throwing against air, but unlike at their pro days they will be throwing routes dictated by other people.  They will also be throwing to guys that they they haven't thrown to before for the most part.

As much as I hate to say it, this is probably going to be a huge day for Cam Newton.  He will run a good 40 time and be able to make all of the throws.  His media buzz will be at an all-time high this time tomorrow.

The 40 is huge for Jake Locker because his athleticism is really the only thing that might keep him in the first round. 

The running backs and wide receivers will also workout today.  You can watch the workouts live on NFL Network and NFL.com.  Discuss anything you see here.  I will have a recap of all of the events this evening.
