The 2017 NFL Scouting Combine is taking place at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis through Monday. The annual showcase of draft-eligible prospects from around the country is the last chance for players to bolster their stock while going head-to-head against a lot of their fellow draftees.

After the combine, prospects will only have a few opportunities left—pro days and individual workouts with interested teams—to impress front offices before the draft. The marquee event of the offseason will take center stage starting April 27 in Philadelphia.

Let's check out all of the testing results from the on-field work in Indy. Each day's numbers are followed by a recap of the most notable storylines. All of the information will be updated through the conclusion of the combine Monday afternoon.

The class' top running backs—Dalvin Cook (Florida State), Leonard Fournette (LSU) and Christian McCaffrey (Stanford)—entered the spotlight during the combine's first day of real action.

Any front offices hoping their trip to Indianapolis would provide a definitive answer about which one is the best long-term option didn't get their wish, though. All three performed well in the testing, most notably posting nearly identical times in the 40-yard dash.

As Booger McFarland of the SEC Network pointed out, however, the LSU standout kept pace with Cook despite carrying a much larger frame:

Booger @ESPNBooger

Cook 4.5. Fournette 4.51. And weighs 20 pounds more. Now twitter can go back to originally scheduled tweets 😏

ESPN Stats and Info discussed exactly how rare Fournette's combination of size and speed is in the combine's marquee event:

ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo

Leonard Fournette officially ran the 40-yard dash in 4.51 seconds, the fastest time by a RB weighing 240+ lbs since 2006. #NFLCombine https://t.co/hBDIEYKDOM

Meanwhile, Charley Casserly of NFL.com provided the results of an informal poll he conducted with more than half the league's teams about the top two running backs:

Charley Casserly @CharleyCasserly

Surveyed 18 teams. Fournette 11. Cook 7 for best back @nflnetwork

McCaffrey was perhaps college football's most well-rounded playmaker during his time at Stanford. He made an impact on the ground, through the air and on special teams. He's spent the offseason trying to show teams that his multifaceted skill set is worth a first-round pick.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller came away impressed:

Matt Miller @nfldraftscout

Today is showing that Christian McCaffrey is one hell of an athlete.

Texas running back D'Onta Foreman was a notable absence from the proceedings after getting scratched from the workout due to a foot injury.

Adam Caplan of ESPN reported the rusher has a "small stress fracture in his foot." Max Meyer of NFL.com noted Foreman should still be an active participant at the Longhorns' pro day on March 28.

Elsewhere, the future position of Alabama offensive lineman Cam Robinson has been a major talking point leading up to the draft. His draft stock will be a lot higher if he's able to convince teams he'll be able to handle left tackle compared to right tackle or guard.

His combine workout was a step in the right direction. Alabama Football showcased the Crimson Tide star in the 40-yard dash:

Alabama Football @AlabamaFTBL

Check out Cam's 40 from this morning at the #NFLCombine #RollTide https://t.co/zU9DtL6rhh

Dion Caputi‏ of National Football Post liked the lineman's footwork:

Dion Caputi @nfldraftupdate

Mirror drill is where I look for an indicator of pass-pro footwork. #Bama's Cam Robinson was just so smooth and in control at all times.

Dan Schneier‏ of 247Sports relayed thoughts from former New York Giants center and current NFL Network analyst Shaun O'Hara:

Dan Schneier @DanSchneierNFL

Shaun O'Hara on @nflnetwork "I don't see how he (Cam Robinson) is not first tackle off the board." #Giants met with Cam at the Combine.

Ultimately, the title of best offensive tackle in the draft is still up for grabs among Robinson, Wisconsin's Ryan Ramczyk and Utah's Garett Bolles, who also put together a strong workout. But the Alabama stalwart has done well to alleviate some lingering concerns during the draft process.

Washington wide receiver John Ross stole the show during Saturday's work by setting the new NFL Scouting Combine standard in the 40-yard dash at a blistering 4.22 seconds.

The NFL Network highlighted Ross' run into the record books:

NFL Network @nflnetwork

HERE IT IS FOLKS. 👀 #NFLCombine https://t.co/sWiZNanGw2

Amazingly, the explosive playmaker told former NFL star and current NFL Network analyst Michael Irvin he felt he could have done even better:

NFL @NFL

"I feel like I could have run faster." - @WatchJRoss 😳 #NFLCombine https://t.co/itVx4Nu1Pw

The most important thing for Ross, however, is the fact that one eye-popping run will go a long to ensuring he lands in the first round on draft day. It could even be enough to push him inside the top 15 picks if a front office falls in love with his athletic tools.

Josina Anderson of ESPN provided further details the receiver's shoulder injury, which is something teams will probably want more answers about before committing to a high pick on him:

ig: josinaanderson @JosinaAnderson

Spoke to WR John Ross yest off camera 1-on-1. Humble spirit. Told me planning shoulder surgery for Mar 14 as of now. Expects 3-4mo recovery.

While Ross was expected to shine, KD Cannon is a wideout from off the radar who put together a strong workout that will likely move him up some big boards. The Baylor star posted the fourth-best 40 time at the position and looked slick in the on-field drills.

Cameron DaSilva of Fox Sports highlighted one of Cannon's nice grabs:

Cameron DaSilva @camdasilva

Nice ball from DeShone Kizer, better grab by KD Cannon https://t.co/ru7Ph0rF87

Of course, the quarterback battle was slated to become the main focus throughout Saturday before Ross decided to flip the script. There was still plenty of attention paid to the trio of Mitch Trubisky, Deshaun Watson and DeShone Kizer, though.

One workout isn't enough to make any definitive statements or reach any conclusions. With that in mind, Trubisky and Watson were definitely a step above Kizer for most of the day.

Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network came away impressed with the UNC product's polish:

Daniel Jeremiah @MoveTheSticks

Trubisky has been really crisp. He has a quick dip/whip delivery.

Dan Hope of the Independent Mail pointed out the Clemson sensation's athletic prowess:

Dan Hope @Dan_Hope

#Clemson QB Deshaun Watson 3rd among QBs in the 40 (4.66), 4th in the broad jump (9-foot-11), 5th in the vertical jump (32.5"). #NFLCombine

Bleacher Report's Brent Sobleski‏ believes the top two separated themselves in the combine:

Brent Sobleski @brentsobleski

Trubisky and Watson just look different compared to every other QB who took the field today.

Meanwhile, Kizer didn't do anything to cause his draft stock to plummet. He just didn't establish himself in the same way as his hyped counterparts when it came to delivering strikes in the passing drills.

Rob Rang of NFLDraftScout.com discussed some of the Notre Dame QB's struggles:

Rob Rang @RobRang

Kizer's inconsistent footwork left him spraying ball. Even on relatively simple right curls, ball went high, mid, low on 3 successive throws

Bleacher Report's Chris Simms thinks the workout may have ended Kizer's chances of beating out Trubisky and Watson for the top spot at the position:

Chris Simms @CSimmsQB

This workout alone should tell talent evaluators all they need to know. DeShone Kizer shouldn't be the first QB off the board. #NFLCombine

In addition, Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes continued to show he probably belongs in the discussion as a potential first-round selection, as well. The way he throws the ball is a lot like a baseball pitcher who hits the upper-90s with a mundane delivery—easy power.

Aaron Wilson‏ of the Houston Chronicle liked what he seen from the former Red Raider:

Aaron Wilson @AaronWilson_NFL

Smooth scouting combine throwing session from Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes, lot of velocity, accuracy and timing

There's less drama surrounding the tight ends, mostly because Alabama's O.J. Howard has run away from the field, both literally and figuratively. He's making a serious push toward the top 10 overall.

The NFL passed along his 40-yard dash—a remarkable display of speed, size and power:

NFL @NFL

6'6" and 249lbs. With a 4.51u 40-yard dash? Yup. That's @AlabamaFTBL TE O.J. Howard 😳 #NFLCombine https://t.co/D5KvQyTdE3

All told, Saturday looked like the best day of the combine on paper. It lived up to that billing thanks to Ross' record-setting speed and the quarterback competition. Now the question will be how much the QB rankings get shaken up as a result.

Myles Garrett didn't just solidify his stock as the No. 1 prospect in the 2017 NFL draft on Sunday, he also made a case to be one of the most impressive athletes to come through the combine in years. This quote obtained by Mike Silver of the NFL Network pretty much says it all:

Michael Silver @MikeSilver

I asked a respected front office executive how Myles Garrett looked in combine drills. Answer: 'Like a job saver.' @nflnetwork

Miller was also effusive in his praise:

Matt Miller @nfldraftscout

Myles Garrett having one of the most amazing combines for a DL I can remember.

Matt Miller @nfldraftscout

When tape + traits + athleticism are of this level, you get an elite prospect. Garrett is an elite prospect. Will be a top 10 all-time grade

Men with his size and strength aren't generally as athletic, explosive and fast as Garrett. You can practically feel the anxiety coming from offensive tackles and quarterbacks around the league after Garrett backed up a productive college career with some eye-opening numbers at the combine.

For whatever reason, there have been some questions about Garrett's production and motor in college. The latter is a fairly common critique at this stage in the draft cycle, when every nook and cranny of a player's resume and skill set is being dissected.

The former was pretty easily disproved by Miller and Dane Brugler of NFLDraftScout.com: 

Matt Miller @nfldraftscout

Per @PFF_College: Myles Garrett 31 sacks, 35 QB hits, 98 QB hurries. Good enough for me.

Dane Brugler @dpbrugler

Only one other FBS player had more sacks the past three seasons than Garrett. https://t.co/xpBma2Hi4N

If Garrett isn't the top pick by the Cleveland Browns at this year's draft—or by a different team if Cleveland trades the pick—it will come as a surprise.

Garrett isn't without competition to top draft boards, however. Alabama's Jonathan Allen is certainly in the mix, though he didn't post eye-popping numbers on Sunday. That's unlikely to hurt his draft stock, however.

"His tape is as good as anybody in this draft," Mike Mayock said of Allen on the NFL Network broadcast. "I think he's one of the safest picks in this draft."

This draft is loaded with talented defensive linemen and linebackers, and like Allen, Solomon Thomas is a player who will likely make a living as a talented interior rusher. The Stanford product had a solid afternoon, as did Derek Barnett, who ran a 4.88 40-yard dash one day after suffering from the flu.

A few other players of note had solid afternoons, including J.J. Watt's younger brother T.J. Watt, edge-rushers Takkarist McKinley and Carl Lawson, and Temple linebacker Haason Reddick, who ran a 4.52 and showcased the sort of athleticism that teams crave at linebacker in the modern NFL. 

Reddick feasibly could play any linebacker position on the field, given his ability to both rush the passer and cover tight ends. His showing at the combine could launch him into the first round.

And then there was Jabrill Peppers, who ran a solid 4.46 at 213 pounds and worked out with the linebackers. He noted on the NFL Network broadcast that he'll work out with the defensive backs tomorrow, but Charley Casserly of NFL Network already liked what he saw:

Charley Casserly @CharleyCasserly

Jabrill Peppers had a good WO with the LB's. He even looked good rushing the passer. Looking forward to seeing him do some DB drills too

Peppers had some fun during the NFL Network broadcast, too:

NFL Network @nflnetwork

.@JabrillPeppers and @MikeMayock dissect Jabrill's game as a Wolverine. #NFLCombine https://t.co/PFwGOzi1UL

In a loaded and talented group of players on Sunday, it wasn't easy to stand out. Garrett justifiably was the center of attention, but the versatility and athleticism of Peppers was certainly a highlight later in the day as well.

Many of the top defensive backs helped their draft stocks on Monday, though the case of Marshon Lattimore became more complicated after he was injured. It doesn't appear to be serious, however.

Marshon Lattimore @shonrp2

Wasn't a hamstring injury, it's my hip flexor. I'm good y'all lol

Lattimore's past hamstring issues were already a concern for NFL teams, per Dane Brugler of NFLDraftScout.com, so the fact that this latest setback wasn't with his hamstring was good news.

Oh, and so was his impressive 4.36 40-yard dash. If teams aren't too concerned with his injury past, Lattimore very well could be a top-10 pick.

Another potential top-10 pick, safety Jamal Adams, didn't post the impressive numbers that Lattimore showed, but he nonetheless remains an intriguing prospect. Certainly, his excellent tape will keep him in the running to even be selected in the top five picks.

"Had a scout tell me yesterday that Adams is the safest pick in the draft," Miller noted on Monday.

Adams and Malik Hooker are both candidates to be the first pick off the board come the NFL draft. Hooker couldn't participate in the testing and drills, however, as he recovers from a a torn labrum and sports hernia.

A few players improved their stock with strong testing, meanwhile, none more than Minnesota cornerback Jalen Myrick, who ran a blazing 4.28 40-yard dash. Ohio State's Gareon Conley had a strong day as well and solidified his standing as a top-50 pick, while Obi Melifonwu's combination of size, athleticism and speed at safety could launch him into the late-first round conversation. 

Frankly, Monday was mostly a good day for the top cornerback prospects. Sidney Jones tested well. Adoree Jackson and Marlon Humphrey both ran well. Quincy Wilson didn't run a blazing time but it was sufficient for a player of his size and playing style. 

Really, Florida's Teez Tabor was amongst the only notable players to truly struggle on Monday, as Bucky Brooks of NFL.com noted:

The Gators' CB1 arrived in Indy amid questions regarding his speed, quickness and technique, and he did little to alleviate those concerns. Tabor not only clocked a pedestrian 40-yard dash time (4.62 seconds), but he didn't look smooth or fluid in drills. From his ragged turns and transitions to his lackluster burst in the W-drill, Tabor certainly didn't impress scouts with his movement skills. In a draft loaded with talent on the perimeter, Tabor's subpar workout could lead to a drop down the charts.

Tabor may have hurt his stock on Monday, but one storyline ran throughout Monday's proceedings: It's a good year to upgrade in the secondary.
