NORMAN — Two of the five former Oklahoma football players invited to the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine can't do much while recovering from ACL tears.
Another was kicked off the Sooners' team midway through his senior season.
Still, Oklahoma's five players represent the second-most of any Big 12 Conference team, behind only Baylor, which sent six players to the Combine.

Size: 6-0, 192
Where he'll impress: Colvin has good size and athletic ability. He's a hard worker and a good leader who displayed toughness late in his senior season, when he played through a painful shoulder injury.
Where he'll underwhelm: He can get hung up on blocks and doesn't play fast. He also tore his ACL during Senior Bowl week last month, which could cause him to fall a round or two in the draft.
What he can gain at combine: Colvin's intelligence and maturity should play well with NFL executives during interviews, but the knee injury will limit his participation.

Where he'll impress: Ikard is highly intelligent, a hard worker and an excellent leader. He's also very charismatic and likable. NFL teams likely won't have to worry about off-the-field issues or distractions.
