The next big step: NFL Combine

0224combine.jpgThink of it as a job interview -- except on national TV, in front of hundreds of high-level executives and with millions of dollars riding on just a few seconds.

The 2010 NFL Combine officially begins today, with 11 Trojans set to arrive in Indianapolis to begin the four-day evaluation process in front of executives and coaches from all 32 NFL teams.

All players will go through the same four-day rotation during the Combine, simply starting it on different days this week. Here's what the schedule looks like:

  • Day 1: Travel, registration, pre-exam and X-ray, orientation, interviews
  • Day 2: Measurements, exams, media, psych tests, interviews
  • Day 3: NFLPA meeting, psych tests, interviews
  • Day 4: Workout (timing, stations, skill drills), departure

Offensive linemen, tight end and specialists begin the cycle today; quarterbacks, wideouts and running backs start Thursday; defensive linemen and linebackers begin Friday; and defensive backs start Saturday. Here's a look at the 11 Trojans, sorted by position and start date, who were invited to the 2010 Combine.
