    The fun continues today with the rest of the offensive
    players going"Day one of on-field drills at the 2019 NFL Combine did not
    disappoint ,
    though day two is typically a fan favorite with the quarterbacks, wide
    receivers, and tight ends slated to workout. Defensive lineman and linebackers
    will hit the media circuit:2019 NFL Scouting Combine - Day 5 Schedule:Group:

    InterviewsAs a bevy of talented individuals hit the field in Lucas Oil Stadium
    today, here are a few that catch my eye:Ole Miss Rebels WR D.K. MetcalfMetcalf
    is a monstrosity of a man who was measured in at 6’3” 3/8, 228 lbs, and 1.6%
    body fat (which likely isn’t totally accurate). Not only that, but he already
    threw up 27 bench press reps. Metcalf is the #1 wide receiver for most in the
    media, so it’ll be interesting to see what kind of freakish numbers he can throw
    up in the remaining drills at the combine.Ohio State Buckeyes QB Dwayne
    HaskinsThe battle for the QB1 spot has decidedly narrowed to Dwayne Haskins and
    Oklahoma Sooners QB Kyler Murray, though Murray has already stated on record
    that he wont perform in any drill at the combine today. Haskins has a shot to
    impress (though it should be taken with a grain of salt) in the on-field drills.
    Timing will obviously be an issue as these QB’s have never practiced with the
    receivers Robert
    Woods Jersey
    , but there’s something to be said about a guy willing to go
    out there and compete regardless.Iowa Hawkeyes TE Noah FantFant is your
    prototypical “move” tight end in today’s NFL, so he should test relatively well.
    Will it be enough to edge out his teammate in T.J. Hockenson for the top tight
    end spot in the draft? We’ll see. It's become clear through the first half of
    this season the Seattle Seahawks offense functions best when running back Chris
    Carson is getting the bulk of the carries.Yet it's also becoming clear that
    Carson may be a spectator on Sunday when the Seahawks face the Los Angeles Rams
    as he deals with a hip injury that could keep him sidelined for the second time
    this season.Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Carson would not
    practice and his status for Sunday's NFC West matchup was uncertain. Carson
    started last Sunday's 25-17 loss to the Chargers and averaged 5.0 yards per
    carry, but did not play the final 2陆 quarters after a lingering hip issue flared
    up.While there is a chance Carson could be ready by Sunday, the Seahawks (4-4)
    also turn around and play a Thursday night game against Green Bay next week. And
    playing Carson on Sunday may make him unavailable against the Packers, which
    could end up being a more important game for Seattle's playoff hopes."The soft
    tissue thing is kind of hanging with him a little bit," Carroll said of Carson.
    "This hip thing is still kind of there and we've got to wait and see how it
    comes out at the end of the week."Carson has shown he's the best option as
    Seattle's primary running back when he is healthy. In the four games Carson has
    carried the ball at least 14 times this season, he's averaging 4.2 yards per
    carry, 95.5 yards per game and the Seahawks are 3-1 in those four games.In the
    three games where Carson has carried the ball fewer than 14 times either because
    of injury or game plan, the Seahawks are winless.If Carson can't play against
    Rams ,
    Mike Davis would likely get the bulk of the work at running back with a bigger
    role for rookie first-round pick Rashaad Penny as well."We've got plenty of guys
    we can go to," Carroll said. "We don't have to just rely on one guy right
    now."Davis has shown an ability to be the primary ball carrier for the Seahawks,
    running for 101 yards on 21 carries in Seattle's Week 4 victory over Arizona
    when Carson was out because of an unrelated groin injury. Davis had 62 yards on
    15 carries last week carrying the bulk of the running after Carson was unable to
    continue."It's like I do every week, prepare that I'm going to be the starter so
    if it does come up I don't get blindsided," Davis said.Davis has proven he can
    handle the load. The same can't be said of Penny, who has just 42 carries for
    146 yards through eight games. In the first couple of weeks, Seattle made it a
    priority to force Penny into the game and get him some action. After they
    realized that wasn't working, Penny disappeared for a couple of weeks before
    slowly being reintegrated to the offense.Last week Penny had just four carries,
    but may see that number increase significantly if Carson can't play."We've just
    got to get him out there. He just needs more
    turns Womens

    ," Carroll said of Penny. "Mike has been very
    versatile in the throwing game and all the styles of runs, really good at it and
    very effective. We're just going with what looks right. It has nothing to do
    with where you got picked or where you came from for the opportunities to
    present itself for the guys to show what they can do."Whoever is carrying the
    ball, the Seahawks will want to replicate the success they had from the first
    meeting with the Rams. Seattle rushed for a season-high 190 yards in the 33-31
    loss, the most allowed by Los Angeles this season. But Carson was a big part of
    that success, running for 116 yards.Davis expects the Rams to make changes, but
    also believes in his offensive line."We know what our guys can do up front and
    they're killing it. I have no doubt," Davis said.NOTES: G D.J. Fluker didn't
    finish last week's game with a calf injury and sat out practice on Wednesday.
    Carroll said Fluker was a little more sore on Wednesday than he was earlier in
    the week. ... S Bradley McDougald also didn't practice with a knee injury that
    kept him out the second half against the Chargers. Delano Hill would start if
    McDougald can't play.
