Florida Gators at 2013 NFL Combine: Thursday

By Adam Silverstein
February 21, 2013

For the fourth-straight year, ONLY GATORS Get Out Alive begins our coverage of the 10 former Florida Gators participating in the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine (National Invitational Camp) at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN.

The event, which is held for six days from Feb. 20-26, consists of more than 300 players being put through a series of drills, tests and interviews while more than 600 NFL personnel in attendance (including coaching staffs, executives, player personnel and medical staffs) look on and evaluate each of them. It amounts to the final job interview these athletes will participate in before the 2013 NFL Draft commences on April 25.

Players began arriving on Wednesday but action did not begin until Thursday when offensive tackle Xavier Nixon (Group: 1 | Camp: OL41), kicker Caleb Sturgis (Group: 1 | Camp: PK12) and tight end Jordan Reed (Group: 3 | Camp: TE15) were officially measured, completed medical exams, met with the media and continued the interview process they began the previous day.

Nixon, Sturgis and Reed will remain on mostly the same schedule throughout the week. The trio will continue interviews on Friday, take the Wonderlic and other tests and perform on the bench press. Sturgis will also workout on Friday with Nixon and Reed concluding their combine attendance on Saturday following the workout.

Running back Mike Gillislee (Group: 6 | Camp: RB13) arrived Thursday for orientation.
