Well look at that.
The names of the 337 players invited to the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine has been released.https://t.co/VTgs4HSBvB pic.twitter.com/avKeFwm99x— NFL Draft (@NFLDraft) February 7, 2020
After not having a single player drafted in the 2019 NFL Draft, it looks like there could be at least four former Nebraska football players that have a pretty good chance of hearing their name called on at least one of the four days of the NFL Draft.
Your definition of “good chance” might be different than mine. I suspect all four will be drafted.
Darrion Daniels, Carlos Davis, Khalil Davis and Lamar Jackson all received invites to the NFL Scouting Combine which will be held in Indianapolis from February 24th through March 1st. There were 337 prospects which were invited.
Lamar Jackson and Khalil Davis have garnered some positive attention during their Senior Bowl and Shrine bowl appearances, respectively.
One possible snub could be Mohamed Barry. My sources* have told me he was 338th on the list, but they wanted to keep the number lower so they only sent out 337 invites.
It is not a surprise that there are not Nebraska players on the list from the offensive side of the ball as Kanawai Noa was the only senior on that side of the ball that was a regular contributor.
The complete list of players who received invites can be found here.
