The NFL Scouting Combine won't be taking place in Indianapolis this spring, but if it were, Ohio State would have been very well represented.
The NFL released its list of 323 combine invites on Wednesday afternoon, and Ohio State had the most players invited of any school in the nation with 14 former players receiving invites. The Buckeyes had three more invites than any other school, with Alabama, Georgia and Notre Dame are in a three-way tie for the second-most invites with 11.
The 14 Buckeyes earning invites to the combine are Tuf Borland, Baron Browning, Drue Chrisman, Jonathon Cooper, Wyatt Davis, Luke Farrell, Justin Fields, Blake Haubeil, Justin Hilliard, Josh Myers, Trey Sermon, Tommy Togiai, Shaun Wade and Pete Werner.
Though there will be no physical combine this year, the players receiving invitations will go through virtual interviews and psychological testing with NFL teams – parts of the draft process that typically also take place at the combine before their combine workouts. Some invitees, though not all, will be asked to travel to Indianapolis before the draft for an in-person medical examination.
As far as workouts, all 14 of those Buckeyes – along with other NFL draft-eligible Buckeyes like wide receiver C.J. Saunders and tight end Jake Hausmann – will have the opportunity to work out for NFL scouts at Ohio State's pro day on March 30.
