10 Alabama players invited to the 2013 NFL Combine

      Damion Square (

      Ten former Alabama football players have received invitations to participate in the 2013 NFL Draft Combine in Indianapolis.

      Over 300 players aspiring to play professionally will be evaluated by NFL scouts, general managers and other player personnel beginning Saturday, Feb. 23-26 at Lucas Oil Stadium.

      Three Alabama underclassmen, D.J. Fluker, Dee Milliner and Eddie Lacy, received invites after they became eligible for the NFL Draft after deciding to leave school early to make the jump to the next level.

      Currently, Milliner has the highest grade from scouts and is projected to be drafted in the top-five of April's draft.

      Barrett Jones, who is still recovering from foot surgery following the Crimson Tide's BCS National Championship win over Notre Dame on January 7, will likely be limited in his participation.

      Only Georgia (11) and LSU (13) will have more players represented at the event. Florida will send 10 players, equaling Alabama's total. Auburn will send three representatives to the combine.

      Other SEC teams with players invited:{} Arkansas (6), Kentucky (1), Mississippi State (3), Missouri (3), South Carolina (7), Tennessee (5), Texas A&M (6), Vanderbilt (1).
