National Football League releases Scouting Combine invite list


Two of Penn State's NFL Draft prospects have been invited to showcase their skills at the league's skill combine, which starts at the end of the month. Last year, the SEC had 74 players invited - 16 more than the runner-up Big Ten.

The Clemson players invited include Ben Boulware (LB), Wayne Gallman (RB), Jadar Johnson (SS), Jordan Leggett (TE), Artavis Scott (WR), Cordrea Tankersley (CB), Deshaun Watson (QB), Carlos Watkins (DT) and Mike Williams (WR).

With nine players invited, Clemson's showing will be tied for the ACC's largest, with Miami, which also sends nine.

The NFL released on Wednesday the list of players who have been invited to the annual evaluations of pro prospects in Indianapolis. MI has the most with 14, while Alabama and LSU have 10 apiece.

Boycotts of Trump-branded goods have surfaced in the form of the Grab Your Wallet campaign and criticism online. The tweet did not affect Nordstrom's stock price and it closed at a higher price.

This year's combine is scheduled to begin February 28 and runs through March 6 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Florida State had eight players land on the list, while Louisville had seven.

Wide receiver Chris Godwin and defensive end Garrett Sickels have received invitations. Round one of the draft is April 27.

Off-the field issues, including disorderly conduct in a nightclub incident two years ago, kept Kelly from landing an invite, according to Bleacher Report NFL Draft reporter Matt Miller.
