The 2012 NFL Combine rolls right along into Friday's activities in Indianapolis. The third day of the event sees the arrival of three groups of defensive players, some of whom are the very best prospects in the country at their position. These Friday arrivals -- labeled Group 7, Group 8 and Group 9 -- will begin registration and preliminary medical examinations on their first day in town.
Groups 7 and 8 consist of defensive linemen while Group 9 will feature exclusively linebackers.
Notable players from groups 7, 8 and 9 include:
- Courtney Upshaw, LB, Alabama Crimson Tide
