INDIANAPOLIS — A quick look back at the first day of the combine workouts:

Inside the numbers: South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney’s wing span, finger tip to finger tip, was measured at 83 inches.

He’s fast: Tennessee State tight end A.C. Leonard had the fastest 40-yard dash time of the tight ends. He ran 4.5 seconds.

He’s strong: North Carolina center Russell Bodine lifted 225 pounds 42 times.

For the record: “I believe I did work hard. You pull out any practice tape from last year, you’ll see that. That’s what I told them. I’ll tell everybody that. I will always be working hard.” – Clowney on Steve Spurrier’s recent comments about his work ethic.

Hot topic: “If someone wants to call me a name, I’ll have a conversation with that guy, and hopefully it won’t lead to nothing else.” – Missouri’s Michael Sam on how he’d handle a gay locker room slur by a team-mate.
