The last line of defense in games, the safeties were the final group of athletes to work out in front of scouts, coaches and decision-makers during the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis Monday afternoon.

The safeties went through the general drills (40-yard dash and bench press,) and also, position-specific tests, and results confirmed a combination of speed and strength from those athletes tasked with making plays across all levels of the field during games.

Here is a look at the top-performing safeties at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine:
