NFL to hold regional combines again

NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL will hold 10 regional combines and a 2013 super regional combine beginning late in January.

The regional combines are a supplement to the NFL's national scouting combine in Indianapolis in late February.

Regional combines are conducted specifically for players eligible for the 2013 draft but not attending the Indianapolis combine; players with college playing experience who want to gauge their pro potential; and players with some professional playing experience but who have been out of the game for a period of time.

NFL executive Ray Anderson says the regional combines program " provides players who may not have had the chance before the opportunity to work out for NFL personnel executives. It allows all 32 clubs a chance to further evaluate future prospects."
