Eight Ohio State players are among those that received invites to the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine, offering another chance to bolster their stock before the NFL Draft.
The Buckeyes set to attend the showcase include center Luke Wypler, cornerback Cameron Brown, defensive end Zach Harrison, offensive tackles Paris Johnson Jr. and Dawand Jones, quarterback C.J. Stroud, safety Ronnie Hickman and wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba.
Alabama will have the most representatives at the Scouting Combine, with 13 prospects set to attend. Georgia is the only other team with double-digit attendees, set to sent 12 players, while Florida, LSU, Michigan and TCU each have nine and Clemson and Ohio State have eight each.
Notable Buckeyes who did not receive an invite include defensive tackles Taron Vincent and Jerron Cage, kicker Noah Ruggles and safety Tanner McCalister, though all will have at least one more opportunity to impress scouts at Ohio State’s Pro Day in March.
The NFL Scouting Combine will take place in Indianapolis from Feb. 28 through March 6. Prospects will interview with teams throughout the week, with measurements and on-field workouts beginning on March 2.
