INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Oregon cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu might have the toughest job at the NFL scouting combine.

Unable to work out because of a knee injury sustained in mid-December and unlikely to be on the field before August, he needs to generate enough interest that at least one team is willing to take a chance on him in the April draft.

Ekpre-Olomu already was at a disadvantage because of his 5-foot-10 frame that is accentuated in a league where size can be the difference between wins, losses and roster spots.

But because of the injury - and the recovery time - Ekpre-Olomu will have to rely on game tape and interviews to make his case.
