Florida Gators at 2014 NFL Combine: Thursday

For the fifth-straight year, OnlyGators.com begins our coverage of the eight former Florida Gators participating in the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine (National Invitational Camp) at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN.

The event, which is held for six days from Feb. 19-25, 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 a major job interview for these athletes to participate in ahead of the start of the 2014 NFL Draft on May 8.

Players began arriving on Wednesday but action did not begin until Thursday when offensive lineman Jon Halapio (Group: 1 | Camp: OL12), OL Jonotthan Harrison (Group: 1 | Camp: OL13) and tight end Trey Burton (Group: 3 | Camp: TE03) were officially measured, completed medical exams, met with the media and continued the interview process they began the previous day.

Halapio, Harrison and Burton will remain on mostly the same schedule throughout the week. The trio will continue interviews on Friday, take the Wonderlic and other psychological tests, and perform on the bench press. On Saturday, they will participate in the on-field workout before departing Indianapolis.

Check out Thursday’s results from the 2014 NFL Combine…after the break!

    Any word on how our boy Lerentee McCray is doing? I know he was looking pretty good in pre-season before getting placed on IR.

    I still believe he’ll do well in the NFL if he gets a shot.
