For Chris Boswell and Phillip Gaines, the next step in the series of evaluations both hope will result in their being selected in the NFL Draft begins this weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana when they attend the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Prospects will begin arriving on Wednesday for medical examinations, orientation sessions, interviews with the media and with NFL teams before the actual testing begins on Friday.
Boswell and the remainder of the special teams players will work out with the tight ends and offensive linemen will begin their testing on Friday and wrap them up on Saturday. Gaines and his fellow cornerback prospects will take part in the evaluation drills on Tuesday, February 25.
Drills will once again include the 40-yard dash, bench press, vertical jump, broad jump, 3 cone and shuttle run and all drills will be carried live by the NFL Network as well as streamed live on NFL.com.
Boswell, who played in the 2014 Senior Bowl, shattered the Rice kicking records, nearly doubling the previous career mark with 65 field goals, including 13 from 50 yards or longer. He finished with 359 points, second only to Dillard's 360 in school history.
Gaines, who played in the 2014 East-West Shrine Game, was the first Owl to earn back-to-back, all-conference honors since Dillard and wrapped his career with a school-record 38 career pass breakups. As a senior he led the Owls with four interceptions.
