2013 NFL Combine: Schedule and preview


The NFL Scouting Combine is underway, and while players won't take to the field for a few more days, when they do Florida and Florida State will be well represented.

The NFL Scouting Combine began Wednesday in Indianapolis and Florida and Florida State are two of the most well-represented teams at the event. The two teams combined to have 23 participants in the 2013 combine.

FSU leads the way with 13 players participating in the event, headlined by defensive end Bjoern Werner. Many have projected Werner as a top-10 pick with some even predicting he will go in the top five. Werner will work out with the defensive linemen in on-field workouts scheduled for Monday. Seminoles defensive end Cornellius Carradine will join Werner in the defensive line workouts.

Like Werner, FSU cornerback Xavier Rhodes is also projected at a potential first-round pick. He will be one of the last players to workout at the combine, as defensive backs don't arrive until Saturday and don't hit the field until Tuesday. Other FSU players participating include defensive lineman Everett Dawkins, kicker Dustin Hopkins, defensive lineman Brandon Jenkins, quarterback E.J. Manuel, linebacker Nick Moody, running back Lonnie Pryor, defensive back Greg Reid, wide receiver Rodney Smith, running back Christopher Thompson and offensive lineman Menelik Watson.

The Gators will also be well represented at the combine with 10 participants. Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd is the highest-rated Gator at the event, while safety Matt Elam and tight end Jordan Reed could work their way into the first-round discussion with a good workout.

In addition to Floyd, Elam and Reed, linebacker Jonathan Bostic, defensive back Josh Evans, running back Mike Gillislee, linebacker Jelani Jenkins, linebacker Lerentee McCray, offensive lineman Xavier Nixon and kicker Caleb Sturgis will take part in the event.

Florida and FSU aren't the only Florida schools represented though, as South Florida will have three participants while Florida International and Florida A&M will each have one. Players will go through interviews and medical exams, but the highlight of the combine are the workouts. The complete schedule of workouts based on position group can be found below.
