Just saw the update on WN. Mike Martin, David Molk, and Junior Hemingway have all received invitations to attend the NFL Combine in Indy, February 22-28. The complete list of invitees is found here.

Congratulations to them, but a bummer that Koger and RVB didn't receive invites.

The problem with RVB is that he is a tweener...too slow to be a DE and not big enough to be a DT.  I think he will find a spot on a roster somewhere though.  I was just really shocked with Koger's skill set that he did not get the invite.

Unfortunately it's sort of a catch 22 type problem for some guys.  Bledsoe and the NFL scouts make recommendations on who they want to see there.  So if you havent already caught somebody's eye during the 12 games you played it's unlikely they will invite you to the combine to show your stuff. 

I guess I'm more of a glass half-full guy as I'm thrilled Junior got invited - wasn't sure that was going to happen at all.   Here's the link if you want to see how they decide:

One would have thought that with Pats' Hernandez/Gronk blowing up and potentially changing how NFL offenses are drawn up, there'd be an emphasis on athletic TE's for this year's draft. Let's hope for big pro days at the U.
