The combine will take place Feb. 28 through March 6 inside of Lucas Oil Stadium. 

Throughout their time in Indianapolis, players will go through various workouts, tests, interviews, medical exams and media sessions as they try to boost their draft stock with NFL scouts from all 32 teams watching every move.

While three Sooners did make the invite list for the combine, running back Joe Mixon was not one of them. The NFL has a rule that bars players from participating in the combine if they have prior felony or misdemeanor convictions involving violence. 

The 2017 NFL Draft will start on Thursday, April 27.
