The 2012 NFL Combine begins Wednesday, when the first group of prospects arrives in Indianapolis.
Former USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil leads the crop of offensive linemen, tight ends, punters and kickers who touch down in Indianapolis on Wednesday in hopes of impressing NFL scouts and front office personnel. Kalil, a 6-foot-7, 295-pounder who started for two seasons as USC's offensive tackle, is projected as a top-five pick.
He and other prospects -- which include Penn State offensive lineman Johnnie Troutman and Temple tight end Evan Rodriguez -- will register at the Combine Wednesday after arriving in Indianapolis, then undergo medical examinations, orientation and interviews on Day 1.
Other positions are scheduled to arrive on different days. The schedule of arrivals follows:
Thursday: Quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs
Friday: Defensive linemen and linebackers
Saturday: Defensive backs
