The NFL has issued invitations to four Huskers: defensive tackle Jared Crick, cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, linebacker Lavonte David, and offensive tackle Marcel Jones. Nobody should be surprised by the first three invitees; Jones is a pleasant surprise. In the weeks' ahead, more invitations may be coming. Offensive tackle Yoshi Hardrick did not earn an invitation but hopes to still impress scouts by working hard. At least that's what he's said on Twitter earlier today:
Gotta lot to prove , I'm at the bottom on the barrel ! Disrespectful , no senior bowl or combine invite
Prior to the NFL Combine, David and Dennard will be participating in the Senior Bowl on January 28th. The Senior Bowl is the most prestigious of the all-star games, as the game is coached by NFL staffs. Jones and safety Austin Cassidy will play this Saturday in the East-West Shrine game.
