NFL Combine starts Thursday

The Kansas City Star

They’re all getting ready. From Player “A” (Oday Aboushi of Virginia, an offensive lineman) to nearly “Z” (Blidi Wreh-Wilson, another O-lineman, from UConn), some 300 draft prospects will converge this week on Indianapolis, site of the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine.

While in Indy, this army of NFL hopefuls will be poked and prodded, weighed and measured, their intellects and wills tested as much as their bodies.

The Chiefs hold the No. 1 selection in the April 25-27 NFL Draft, and figure to be among the teams most interested in seeing how the various players grade out.

Leading the Chiefs’ contingent will be new general manager John Dorsey, a veteran of many drafts with the Green Bay Packers (and one with the Seattle Seahawks) and new head coach Andy Reid, the former draft mastermind of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Also on hand, along with representatives from every NFL team and a gaggle of media members, will be several players with Kansas or Missouri ties.

Among area schools, Kansas State leads the way with five players invited: linebacker Arthur Brown (whose brother, Bryce, just finished his rookie season as a running back with the Eagles), kicker Anthony Cantele, receiver Chris Harper, quarterback (and Heisman finalist) Collin Klein and fullback Braden Wilson.

Missouri has three players invited: linebacker Zaviar Gooden, receiver T.J. Moe and defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson.

And Kansas has two: defensive back Bradley McDougald and offensive lineman Tanner Hawkinson.

Also on the list of participants are Brandon Williams, a defensive lineman from Missouri Southern, and David Bass, a defensive lineman from Missouri Western.

Media sessions, workouts and other testing commence by position group on Thursday and run through Tuesday.

Here’s the complete list of players invited to Indy:
