Offensive tackle Greg Robinson, defensive end Dee Ford, cornerback Chris Davis, running back Tre Mason and punter Steven Clark will participate, the SportsXchange reported.

Ford was among the nation’s top pass rushers. He had a spectacular week at the Senior Bowl, where he was named the top defensive lineman in practices and the Most Valuable Player in the game. Despite missing the first two games with a knee injury, he had 10.5 sacks, 14.5 tackles for loss and 17 quarterback hurries.
Clark averaged 42.6 yards per punt and had 26 out of 56 downed inside the opponents’ 20-yard lines.
