INDIANAPOLIS -- The 2013 NFL combine rolls along today, although the media availability focus will shift some from head coaches and GMs to more players.

Only Giants senior vice president and GM Jerry Reese (10 a.m.) and Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley (11:45 a.m.) will meet with the media among the head coach/GM crowd. An NFL spokesman also said that Ravens coach John Harbaugh might be added to the schedule, and if that's the case, the media access will conclude with the Patriots, Redskins and Saints as the lone three teams not to participate in the voluntary news conferences.

Meanwhile, the defensive linemen and linebackers will be available to meet with the media, and Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o is expected to be the big story.

Defensive tackle has been noted as a position of strength by many, and could be an area the Patriots will address in the draft.

Today also marks the first day of physical testing.
Field Yates has previous experience interning with the New England Patriots on both their coaching and scouting staffs. A graduate of Wesleyan University (CT), he is a regular contributor to ESPN Boston's Patriots coverage and ESPN Insider.
