Unfortunately Brown was not invited.
Graham, Mesko, Minor, and Warren invited to NFL Scouting Combine
That's surprising, Brown has the talent when healthy to be a contributor in the NFL.
The Combine may not help Graham--he's a first rounder based on production, but maybe a late second rounder on measurables.
Graham is a solid late first round pick but if he blows up at the combine he could move up 5-10 spots.
Selfishly, I hope he has a disappointing combine so he falls to Detroit in the second round.
i'm glad Minor got an invite tho...i wasn't sure he would
I think S. Brown could become a decent back-up LB. He played pretty well last year.
Stevie is listed at what, 5' 11" 210-20 lbs? He'd be severely undersized in the NFL, linemen would eat him alive.
There are over 325 players on the list. Clearly more players invited than will get drafted.
I wonder historically how many players who don't get invited to the combine end up in the league. Because there will be 100 or so guys left after the draft who went to the combine that I imagine teams will look to first as free agents.
Clearly there are pro days for guys like Stevie and Carlos Brown this year, Will Johnson last year, etc.
The senior bowl cashed Graham's ticket to the first round. I don't think the combine can change that.
Don't underestimate the stupidity of some NFL GM's. I think they put way too much importance on the combine, so if BG has a really poor combine then maybe he slips back into the 2nd.
There's zero reason to think that will actually happen though b/c BG is a workout freak who's much more likely to further increase his stock than slip.
Even with a bad combine, he's not slipping past New England. The last player from Michigan to have a bad combine, slipping in the draft, was Tom Brady. Yeah, I know, that wasn't really at all relevant, but I just love mentioning that fact. I was hoping he'd be the Lions second round pick, but after the senior bowl, I just don't see that happening, but I'm hopeful.
+1 for your awesome Avatar. I wanna steal it.
i wonder if brady was invited to the combine. re: brown - i think carlos can be decent role player; not so sure about stevie.
