JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A daily Jacksonville Jaguars-related look at what's happening at the NFL combine in Indianapolis:

Monday, Feb. 24

What: Defensive linemen and linebackers on-field workout (timing, stations, skill drills). Defensive backs psychological testing, bench press and interviews.

TV: 9 a.m. ET, NFL Network.

The skinny: Today is one of the most anticipated days of the NFL combine because we'll finally get to see defensive end Jadeveon Clowney run the 40-yard dash. While it's really not that important for a defensive end to run a blazing 40, it'll still be impressive to watch the 6-foot-5, 266-pound Clowney run a sub-4.5. That's not likely to raise his draft stock any because he's already one of the players in the mix to be the top pick in the draft.

Clowney also is among the players the Jaguars are considering with the No. 3 pick, but so is linebacker Khalil Mack. The Jaguars need help at outside linebacker as well so several other players to watch are Ryan Shazier, Telvin Smith, Lamin Barrow. Some defensive ends to watch are Dee Ford (who on Sunday said he was better than Clowney), Brent Urban, Jackson Jeffcoat and Scott Crichton.
