Report: Kyle Rudolph won't participate in combine

Tony Pauline of Draft Insider is reporting that Notre Dame tight end Kyle Rudolph won't be participating in the NFL Scouting Combine.

Rudolph is still recovering from surgery for a hamstring he tore last season. It knocked him out of Notre Dame's final seven games of the season.

Throughout the draft process, Rudolph has been compared to former Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham. A knee injury kept Gresham out of his final college season, just like Rudolph.

The difference, though, is Gresham was able to fully participate in the combine. There, he dazzled, running a 4.66 40-yard dash, registering a 35-inch vertical leap and a solid 20 bench press reps.

Rudolph won't be able to do those things next week in Indianapolis. Instead he'll have to rely on Notre Dame's pro day. A date has not officially been announced. Regardless, Rudolph won't have as much attention as he would at the combine.

As a sophomore in 2009, Rudolph had 33 receptions for 364 yards and three touchdowns. For his career, he had 90 receptions for 1,032 yards and eight touchdowns.
