The list of NFL Draft prospects attending the Scouting Combine was released this week and early reactions are interesting. You can find the full list of 330 draft prospects here provided by NFL.com/, and I've got it inserted below some interesting notes I picked up from looking over the roster.
- Three schools are on schedule to send 10+ prospects to this year’s combine events. Michigan leads the way with 14 total, while Alabama and LSU are tied with 10 each.
- A dozen other college programs will see 7+ prospects work out and interview: Clemson (9), Miami (9), Texas A&M (9), Arkansas (8), Florida (8), Florida State (8), Ohio State (8), Utah (8), USC (8), Louisville (7), North Carolina (7), and Washington (7).
- Of the 95 underclassmen who forfeited their college eligibility - and education via athletic scholarships - just 77 will participate in the Combine. 18 young guys will face an uphill battle to get drafted or even play in the NFL without this exposure.
- For the first time, multiple players with off-field concerns ranging from domestic violence to substance abuse will not be allowed to participate at the Combine. These names include tailback Joe Mixon (Oklahoma), quarterback Chad Kelly (Ole Miss).
- Smaller-school draft prospects like wideout Chad Williams (Grambling State), cornerback Jeremy Cutrer (Middle Tennessee State), linebacker Elijah Lee (Kansas State), and safety Paul Magloire (Arizona) will not be participating after making some noise in all-star games throughout January.
You can also view Daniel Jeremiah's top 50 prospects for 2017 NFL Draft 2.0 here. Important to note is the first 6 players on the top 50 are all defensive. His first offensive player listed is tailback Leonard Fournette.
The list below covers every player invited but you can follow the link to view each prospect by Name , Position, or College.
