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.

Former Georgia stars TE Orson Charles and C Ben Jones will be two of the most closely watched players in Group 1.

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 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.

The Atlanta Falcons, who do not have a first-round pick this season as part of last year's Julio Jones deal, have been linked to the tight end and offensive line positions in many of the first batch of mock drafts, two of the position groups set to begin the testing and timing section of the Combine on Saturday.
