The 2014 NFL Combine will take place on Feb. 22-25 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind., and five former Miami Hurricanes will participate during the event.
Four offensive players—quarterback Stephen Morris, wide receiver Allen Hurns and offensive linemen Seantrel Henderson and Brandon Linder—will represent the 'Canes, while punter Pat O'Donnell rounds out the group.
The five teammates will be tested using speed, strength, agility and position-specific drills, including a 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle run, three-cone drill, bench press and others. For this preview, however, the 40-yard time and bench press reps are main focuses, and a prospective stock up/stock down is added.
In recent years, Miami has not seen much draft success, considering the Hurricanes have not had a first-round pick since Kenny Phillips in 2008.
While that trend is very unlikely to change this year, the difference between being selected during a middle round instead of a later pick will be influenced by each player's performance at the combine.
