Ducasse, who will be among 47 total offensive linemen at the Combine, begin his four-day schedule Wednesday, Feb. 24, and continue through Saturday, Feb. 27.

Ducasse, who will wear "OL15" on his workout gear, will take part in hospital pre-exam and x-rays Wednesday as well as an orientation session and several interviews with NFL team personnel.

Players' second and third-day schedules (Thursday-Friday) for Ducasse will include measurements, more medical examinations, media sessions, psychological testing, NFL Players Association meetings and more interviews with NFL team personnel.
