The 2013 NFL Scouting Combine will take place starting on February 23rd in Indianapolis and run through February 26th. Over 300 top prospects will be working out to try and raise their draft stock for the 2013 NFL Draft, which will take place on April 25th, for the first of three days.
Ted Thompson will certainly be in attendance, as he tries to determine the players he would like to select in the upcoming draft.
Nick Perry, who was the No. 1 pick of the Packers in 2012 (at pick No. 28), had a fabulous workout last year at the combine. Perry ran the 40 in 4.58 seconds, had a vertical jump of 38.5 inches, a broad jump of 10-4, plus bench-pressed 225 pounds 35 times.
In 2013, the Packers will have the 26th selection in the first round, and depending on the board at the time, the team will have a number of options.
The team has a number of needs, but Thompson usually will pick the best player on the board when it's time for the Packers to make their selection.
I'm going to list some of the players who may be available when it's time for the Packers to pick with the 26th selection in the first round.
