NFL combine 2013: Matt Elam, Jordan Reed among invitees

The NFL combine will feature 23 players from Florida and Florida State collectively this year. Here's a look at which players will be on display.


Florida and Florida State will certainly have a strong showing when Feb. 20 rolls around. The Gators and Seminoles are set to send a combined 23 players to take the field at Lucas Oil Stadium later this month.

Matt Elam, the second-ranked safety in this year's draft class by Mocking the Draft, will likely turn some heads when he takes the field. A ball-hawk at times, Elam's physicality really stood out in several big games for Florida in 2012.

Jordan Reed will also in Indianapolis, trying to make a case as one of the best tight ends heading into the NFL. The 6'3, 243-pound junior is ranked No. 3 at his position.

Jonathan Bostic, Josh Evans, Sharrif Floyd, Mike Gillislee, Jelani Jenkins, Lerentee McCray, Xavier Nixon, and Caleb Sturgis will also represent the Gators.

Bjoern Werner headlines the list of Seminoles to appear in Indianapolis. The No. 5 overall ranked player for 2013, Werner will make an immediate impact for any defensive line.

Florida State also has Tank Carradine, Everett Dawkins, Dustin Hopkins, Brandon Jenkins, E.J. Manuel, Nick Moody, Lonnie Pryor, Greg Reid, Xavier Rhodes, Rodney Smith, Christopher Thompson, and Menelik Watson on the list.
