Posted February 7, 2013

Twelve former football players from Duke, North Carolina and NC State have been invited to the 2013 NFL Combine, which will be held in Indianapolis Feb. 20-26. 

With six invites, the University of North Carolina trails only Florida State in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Seminoles, who won the league title in December, received 12 invites. 

In Raleigh, former quarterback Mike Glennon leads a list of four Wolfpack players who will visit Indianapolis for the week of pre-draft workouts and interviews. Two Blue Devils will also make the trip. 

In total, 333 players – 43 from the ACC – eligible for the 2013 NFL Draft were invited to the workouts. View the full list here.

    Why do you think Glennon will not do well in the NFL?

    He has a rocket for an arm, and is deadly accurate. Only in the NFL, he will have receivers that will not drop throws that land perfectly in their hands.

    No way Amerson makes it. He is terrible. Glennon has a weak draft for QB's going for him but he will not do well in the NFL but he has a much better chance than Amerson does. Amerson is a fool to leave school.

    He wouldn't get too many touches though. He'd be better off playing for another club. Besides that overpaid deangelo Williams is already there, what rb would want to play with cam newton?

    Gio will look good in Panther Blue. I wish all the invitees good luck in the Combines and the NFL.

    GO CAROLINA!!

    Green and Gold. Actually, Cooper would look mighty nice in a Packer uniform.

    I think blue suits Gio better, and I'm hoping he gets to keep "Carolina" in his team name when he's playing for the NFL:)

    Good luck to all players - wishing them the best and hoping they all have long and successful NFL careers.

    Best of luck to all the players. I don't see Gio falling that far, but he would look good in the scarlet and gold and would be a nice addition to the Niners offense. Plus, his KR abilities wouldn't hurt either.
