TAMPA, FEB. 15, 2017 – USF football standouts Rodney Adams (St. Petersburg) and Marlon Mack (Sarasota) have been invited to take part in the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Ind., Feb. 28-March 6.
Adams and Mack will be among more than 300 NFL prospects invited to participate in the annual event held at Lucas Oil Stadium. Players are grouped by position and undergo a battery of tests – physical, mental and emotional – during their four-day stay in Indianapolis. The final day is the primary on-field workout day for each group.
Mack, a three-time first team all-conference selection and the Bulls’ all-time leading rusher (3,609 yards & 32 TD), will be the first Bull to hit the field. Mack will be part of Group 3 – consisting of running backs, offensive linemen and special teams players – and will take part in the Combine from Tue., Feb. 28 to Fri., March 3. Mack’s on-field workout will take place on Fri., March 3.
Adams, who set Bulls’ records for season receptions (67) and yards (822) in 2016, will be a part of Group 4 – consisting of wide receivers, quarterbacks and tight ends – and will take part in the Combine from Wed., March 1 to Sat., March 4. Adams’ on-field workout will be on Sat., March 4.
Adams, who lost his mother in a car accident in 2013, is using the Combine opportunity to raise funds to assist other children who have lost a parent. He is accepting online pledges for each inch he records in the vertical leap test. Proceeds will benefit Experience Camps, a series of one-week camps for grieving kids. Pledges can be made at: pledgeit.org/Rodney-adams
USF finished the 2016 season ranked No. 19 in the Associated Press poll with a school record 11 wins following the program’s fifth-ever bowl victory in the Birmingham Bowl. The Bulls’ 11-2 record marked the fifth-best winning percentage in FBS football in 2016 and one of just 11 teams to reach 11 wins. USF set nearly 40 team and individual records in 2016, including team records for total yards (6,650), rushing yards (3,714), touchdowns (77) and scoring (569). Junior quarterback Quinton Flowers was named the American Conference Offensive Player of the Year and led a school-record 10 players named to the all-conference team, six of which, including Flowers, will return in 2017.
