NEW YORK – Mississippi State senior offensive guard Gabe Jackson and running back LaDarius Perkins are two of 332 collegiate players who have been invited to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine later this month at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Jackson will work out with offensive linemen on Saturday, Feb. 22, while Perkins’ workout is scheduled the following day with running backs. Coaches and representatives from all NFL teams will be in attendance as both Jackson and Perkins seek their paths to the NFL Draft, which takes place May 8-10 at New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

Jackson, a Liberty, Miss., native paved the way for a record-setting Bulldog offense in 2013. He started all 52 games of his career at left guard and promises to have a bright NFL career. Jackson earned nine All-America honors as a senior and was the recipient of the Kent Hull Trophy as the state of Mississippi’s top offensive lineman.

Perkins, a native of Greenville, Miss., rushed for 542 yards on 137 carries and two touchdowns this season. He concluded his career as the fifth-leading rusher in MSU history with 2,554 yards.

Jackson and Perkins seek to become the 13th and 14th MSU players to be taken in the NFL Draft under coach Dan Mullen since the 2010 draft.
