In the least surprising news of the week, George Karlaftis and David Bell will be headed to the NFL Combine.

They will make the short trip down I 65, as the combine is still held at Lucas Oil Stadium and surrounding Colts Facilities.
I have seen GK projected as high as the number 4 pick, but as well as all the way into the 20s. He is overall seen as a game changing Defensive End that has untapped potential to reach - hard to disagree there.
David Bell, I have seen on some Mocks sneak into the late 1st round, but have seen him as late as bottom 5 in 2nd round.
David Bell can drastically improve his stock with a great combine, if he can run a faster 40 than anticipated, that will go a long way. It is well known of his high football IQ and smooth route running with soft hands, but, the question is explosiveness.
For GK, he is a workout freak and will test great in nearly all combine events. GK is locked in as a 1st round pick in my opinion and will stay there even after the combine.
I am hoping to see both of their names called in the first round come April.
