The 2016 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis has already provided its share of positive impressions and disappointments through the first two days of on-field workouts. Day 3 proved to be far more exciting with the amount of top-notch talent to work out Sunday. 

The quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, offensive linemen and tight ends already performed, but the strength of this year's draft class isn't on the offensive side of the ball. 

Defensive linemen dominate this year's draft rankings. 

Ohio State's Joey Bosa, Oregon's DeForest Buckner, Baylor's Andrew Billings, Eastern Kentucky's Noah Spence, Louisville's Sheldon Rankins, Ole Miss' Robert Nkemdiche, Florida's Jonathan Bullard, UCLA's Kenny Clark, Louisiana Tech's Vernon Butler, Penn State's Austin Johnson, Alabama's A'Shawn Robinson and Jarran Reed, and Clemson's Shaq Lawson and Kevin Dodd competed Sunday.

Each of them are considered potential first-round picks. Bosa, Buckner and Spence are even potential top-10 picks. 

A few intriguing linebacker prospects—Alabama's Reggie Ragland, Ohio State's Darron Lee, Georgia's Leonard Floyd, USC's Su'a Cravens and Boise State's Kamalei Correaalso took the field during the afternoon session. 

More than one of these names popped during Day 3 of combine workouts.
