Another Irish offensive linemen won't run today.

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Quenton Nelson, the best offensive line prospect in the NFL Draft will not be running in the 40 yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Nelson will be participating in the rest of the drills at the Combine. Quenton tweaked something in warming up for his run, and decided that he would hold off as to not risk making it worse.

This is a bit of a disappointment as the best guard and best tackle in the NFL Draft according to Mike Mayock are the pair of Notre Dame Fighting Irish maulers in Nelson and McGlinchey.

Nelson put up an impressive 35 reps in the bench press yesterday. Like McGlinchey, Nelson will most likely run his 40 at Notre Dame's pro day.
