Five MSU seniors will participate in the NFL Combine currently going on until Tuesday, trying to improve their positioning for the 2005 NFL Draft, which will take place April 23-24.
Running back DeAndra Cobb, defensive end Clifford Dukes, free safety Jason Harmon, place-kicker Dave Rayner and defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson all will be down in Indianapolis to prove themselves at various skill and speed drills.
The number of Spartans at the combine matches the number of players representing defending national champions Southern Cal.
Cobb ranks third all-time at MSU for kickoff return yards with 1,632.
Dukes, who dealt with an injury to his quadreceps muscle throughout his senior year, earned second-team All-Big Ten honors and ranks sixth of MSU's all-time sack list.
Leading the Spartans in interceptions in 2004 was Harmon, who also finished third in tackles with 105.
