2012 NFL Combine: Schedule And Preview

The 2012 NFL Combine, the biggest event of the NFL's pre-draft season, kicks off Wednesday, with kickers, punters, offensive lineman and tight ends set to arrive in Indianapolis.

To better manage the crowds, the more than 300 college stars attending this year have been divided into four groups, with the marquee skill position players, like Houston QB Case Keenum and Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill, not set to arrive until Thursday.

Each group will undergo orientation on their first day, before submitting to media interviews, official measurements and psychological testing on Day 2, interviewing with various interested NFL teams on Day 3 and finally beginning the all-important workouts like the 40-yard dash on Day 4.

Houston, whose lack of a second WR next to Andre Johnson was exposed when the perennial All-Pro went down with a hamstring injury early in the season, will be watching the stop-watch times of players like Alshon Jeffery (South Carolina) and Kendall Wright (Baylor) closely when they run the 40 on Sunday.
