2019 NFL Combine Notebook: RBs run the 40, Murray meeting with Cardinals, QBs to throw tomorrow

The 2019 NFL Scouting Combine is underway and as prospects hit the field, coaches and GMs take the podium, and the NFL looks toward its 100th season, theRams.com Combine Notebook will cover the top storylines Indianapolis related to the NFC Champion Los Angeles Rams.

Here are some notes from Friday, March 1st:

RBs RUN THE 40

This year's running back products ran the 40-yard dash in Lucas Oil Stadium on Friday.

Oklahoma State running back Justice Hill's 4.4 flat earned him the top spot in the drill, rounding out a pretty impressive combine for the back so far.

SBNation reporter Christian D'Andrea tabbed Hill as a winner among the running back class at the Combine to this point. The speedy back also logged a 40-inch vertical jump and 130-inch broad jump in this week's first NFL opportunity.

BTH FROM INDIANAPOLIS

Rams team insider Myles Simmons has his take on what head coach Sean McVay and general manager Les Snead had to say from Indianapolis this week in Friday's edition of Between the Horns podcast.

AROUND THE NFC WEST

Arizona Cardinals

Former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray — a potential No. 1 overall candidate — is set to interview with the Cardinals, who own the No. 1 pick, this weekend.

Murray's size has been a hot topic at this year's combine, after the multi-sport college athlete officially measured in at 5-foot-10, 207 pounds.

On Friday, Murray's confidence was on display as he faced the media regarding his size. The former Sooner would become the shortest quarterback drafted in the first round since 2003, should a team take him in the top 32.

San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers join their NFC West counterpart Cardinals at the top of this year's draft order, picking at No. 2 overall come April.

On Friday, Niners team reporter Joe Fann got NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah's take on who the club should take after the Cardinals make their top selection and the former NFL scout says there isn't much separation between the top three available prospects.

Seattle Seahawks

Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is set to become a free agent this month and USA Today Sports' Nate Davis says it's hard to tell what direction the veteran DB is headed based off of head coach Pete Carroll's Thursday comments from the Combine.

Thomas hitting the market could earn some attention from those in the Rams camp, as safety Lamarcus Joyner is also set to become a free agent, possibly freeing a spot in the NFC Champion secondary.
