Who do you think will have the best showing among the five Miami Hurricanes at the NFL Combine?

 

UM: FIVE HURRICANES WILL PARTICIPATE IN NFL SCOUTING COMBINE ON SATURDAY -- WATCH IT ON TV BEGINNING AT 9 a.m.

INDIANAPOLIS – Five Miami Hurricanes will be among the more than 300 prospects participating Feb. 22-25 at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium. The four-day combine will be televised live exclusively on NFL Network.

 Offensive guard Brandon Linder, offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson and punter Pat O'Donnell will work out Feb. 22. Quarterback Stephen Morris and wide receiver Allen Hurns will work out Feb. 23. Live coverage begins each day at 9 a.m. ET. Miami's official football Twitter account (@MiamiHurricanes) will also provide live results for all five Hurricanes.

 Morris, a two-year starter under center and a 2013 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team member, finished his career ranked third in Miami history with 7,896 passing yards and 49 touchdowns. A 2013 All-ACC third-team selection, Morris is one of only two QBs in Miami history with multiple 3,000-yard passing seasons (Gino Torretta).

 Linder started all 13 games along the offensive line in 2013 and concluded his career with 37 consecutive starters. He was a second-team All-ACC selection and was named the team’s Offensive MVP at the end of the season. Henderson, a third-team All-ACC selection, played in 12 games along the offensive line, making eight starts at right tackle.

 Hurns enjoyed one of the greatest receiving seasons in program history in 2013. The second-team All-ACC receiver set a single-season school record with 1,162 receiving yards and finished with 62 receptions – the third-most in a single season. He finished his career ranked seventh in both receptions (121) and receiving yards (1,891).

 In his one season in Coral Gables, O’Donnell made a considerable impact, setting the school single-season record with a 47.1 yards-per-punt average. A first-team All-ACC choice and second-team All-America selection by USA TODAY, O’Donnell booted 23 punts of 50+ yards and downed 19 inside the opponent’s 20-yard line.

 Miami opens its spring practice schedule March 1. The Hurricanes' annual Spring Game will kick off at 6 p.m. on April 12 at Sun Life Stadium.

I'm going with Pat O'Donnell.
