With the NFL Combine just around the corner (February 23-March 1), the invites have just been sent out to players across the country in hopes that they show up and show off their skills for NFL scouts. These players will be looking to strut their stuff and prove that they deserve a shot at the NFL. Whether they’re trying to raise their stock or find any stock to begin with, it’ll be interesting to see who can come out and raise some eyebrows. So here’s a list of the 329 invitees, by school.
