Former Florida OT pulls out of NFL Combine drills due to injury
Former Florida OT Richard Gouraige made it to the NFL Combine, but he won’t be performing any drills.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reports that Gouraige woke up with a swollen ankle attributed to a “pain tolerance test” during his medical exam. Due to the swelling, he won’t be taking part in the linemen showcase on Sunday in Indianapolis.

Gouraige was with Florida for 5 seasons. A multi-year starter at left tackle, he declared for the 2023 NFL Draft instead of using the NCAA’s COVID-19 waiver for a sixth season.
Projections before the Combine had Gouraige as a likely late-round pick. Gouraige may now need a strong showing at Florida’s Pro Day on March 30 to help his NFL Draft stock recover.

I hope he does well at the Florida pro day.
In this picture he looks like the corrupt boxing promoter in Rocky 4 or Rocky 5? One of those. The one Tommy Morrison played in. And the promoter was supposed to be a Don King type. All through the movie he says quote….
” TOUCH ME AND ILL SUI!, ” as in Lawsuit!!!!
PS. He looks just like that guy. If football falls through, he has a face for acting in movies!!! LOL
