2012 NFL Combine Results: Winners And Losers

Now that the 2012 NFL Combine is over, it's time to look back at how the USC Trojans did. Among the seven Trojans participants, All-American left tackle Matt Kalil and defensive end Nick Perry did nothing to dispel the feeling that they will be first round picks, while defensive tackle DaJohn Harris and fullback Rhett Ellison had positive results.

Kalil graded out at 94.0 per NFL.com, the top grade given any offensive lineman at the combine. He is expected to be drafted in the top two or three picks of the draft. Perry, who had 9.5 sacks in his junior season at USC, graded out at 87.5, good for third among defensive ends in the combine.

Harris graded out at 72.7, while Ellison was at 69.5. Other Trojans who participated but might have a hard time getting drafted were tailback Marc Tyler (52.5), linebacker Chris Galippo (50.0), and defensive tackle Christian Tupou (47.5).

USC has had 15 first round draft picks in the last 10 years.
