04/17/2013 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: 124 FBS PROGRAMS, 124 POSSIBLE UNDRAFTED ROOKIE FREE AGENTS: MISSISSIPPI: DT Gilbert Pena (6-3, 330, 5.47)...A large human being, Pena has limited range and isn't as strong as he looks, but was a substantial reason for Mississippi's improved run defense in 2012. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

03/08/2013 - 2013 Mississippi Pro Day: Representatives from 12 NFL teams gathered at Mississippi's pro day, where 20 players worked out.

Gilbert Pena, NT (6-foot-2 1/2, 330 pounds) - Pena ran the 40-yard dash in 5.52 and 5.51 seconds, ran the short shuttle in 4.88 seconds and had a 7.88-second three-cone drill. He had a 24-inch vertical jump and a 8-foot-0 broad jump. He also had 23 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Pena could be selected as high as the seventh round in the 2013 NFL Draft, or be a priority free agent at the draft's conclusion. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

03/06/2013 - Ole Miss did not have a player invited to this year's NFL Combine, so Thursday's Pro Day will take on added importance for all involved. That's a group of 21, including 16 seniors from the 2012 team that went 7-6 and won the BBVA Compass Bowl. Defensive tackle Gilbert Pena, athlete Randall Mackey and tight end Jamal Mosley are among the notable participants. - Hugh Kellenberger, The Jackson Clarion Ledger

The Grove Bowl, Ole Miss' spring game, is set for Saturday, April 13, at 1 p.m. at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The Rebels went 7-6 in their first season under head coach Hugh Freeze, defeating Pittsburgh 38-17 in the BBVA Compass Bowl. - Mississippi football
