Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine may not have come with the anticipation and hype that will follow once the skill players hit the field, but there were still plenty of intriguing prospects and interesting storylines to follow.

Would any of the elite offensive lineman separate themselves from the pack? Which players would hurt their stock? Would the top tier of tight ends live up to the hype?

Let's recap the third day at this year's combine.

Major Storylines

For the offensive lineman, Taylor Lewan from Michigan and Auburn's Greg Robinson won the day. At 6'7", Lewan ran a 4.87 40-yard dash, 1.64 10-yard split and benched 225 pounds 29 times. Meanwhile, Robinson is 6'5" and 332 pounds but still ran a 4.92 40, 1.68 10-yard split and hit 32 reps.

Robinson very well may have vaulted himself past Texas A&M's Jake Matthews, while Lewan almost certainly solidified a top-15 showing. Bleacher Report's own Matt Miller thinks he could even crack the top-10:

Of course, not all of the offensive lineman shined, such as Alabama's Cyrus Kouandjio, as Tony Pauline of Draft Insider tweeted:

It gets worse for Kouandjio—he failed several team physicals. From Ian Rapoport of NFL.com:

While Robinson and Lewan impressed, injuries limited a few of the premier tight end prospects. Eric Ebron actually injured a hamstring while running. From Dan Hope of Bleacher Report:

Ebron officially ran a 4.6.

Meanwhile, Austin Seferian-Jenkins chose not to run with a foot injury that was news to some. From Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times:

Pauline had more on Kouandjio's injury and how it would impact a potential pro day:

Another highly-touted tight end, Jace Amaro, didn't have a great day. He ran a 4.74 40, a bit slower than expected, those his tape is quite impressive and should keep him in the first round.

But one of the day's biggest events was Michael Sam being made available to the media for the first time. Sam made history by becoming the first NFL player to ever announce he is openly guy during his playing career, or at least he will be once he is drafted. 

To be expected, his press conference was a media circus, but Sam handled it all with poise and grace. From Kimberly Jones of NFL.com:

Jadeveon Clowney's press conference was also a huge deal, and he left little doubt as to what his aspirations in the NFL are, via Jones:

Tomorrow the real fun begins, as the quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers hit the drills. Yes, you'll finally get to see playmakers like Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans and Marqise Lee run, as Sunday's drills with the skill position players are always highly anticipated.

Unfortunately, quarterbacks like Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater and Derek Carr won't throw on Sunday, but there is still plenty to look forward to as the combine rolls on.
