Florida Gators at 2016 NFL Combine: Friday

By Adam Silverstein
February 26, 2016

For the seventh-straight year, OnlyGators.com begins our coverage of the eight former Florida Gators participating in the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine (National Invitational Camp) at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The event, which is held for six days from Feb. 23-29, 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 2016 NFL Draft on April 28.


FOURTH-DAY PARTICIPANTS

RB Kelvin Taylor (Group: 3 | Camp: RB23)
Height: 5’10” | Weight: 207 lbs.
Arm length: 29 1/4″ | Hand size: 8 1/4″

Bench press: 15 reps of 225 pounds
Fourth-fewest among running backs

40-yard dash: 4.60 seconds | Three-cone drill: DNP | 20-yard shuttle: DNP
Sixth-slowest among running backs

Vertical jump: 32.0 inches | Broad jump: 113.0 inches
T5 shortest among running backs | T4 shortest among running backs

Notes: Taylor did not flash starting running back numbers on Friday, but it will most likely be his intangables, pedigree and lacking injury history that get him drafted anyway. He’s projected to go on the third day of the draft, likely rounds 5-7.
