There will be a lot of Kentucky blue in Indianapolis for the NFL Combine.
Eight former Wildcats have received invitations to the NFL Combine: linebacker Josh Allen, cornerback Derrick Baity, tight end C.J. Conrad, safety Mike Edwards, cornerback Lonnie Johnson Jr., linebacker Jordan Jones, running back Benny Snell and safety Darius West. Bunchy Stallings was left off the initial guest list.
Kentucky’s eight selections are more than LSU, Michigan, Texas and Penn State. Kentucky is in the same company as Florida and Oklahoma. Only Bama, Clemson, Ohio State, Georgia, Ole Miss, & Washington have more players at the combine than UK.
The NFL Combine is February 26-March 4 at Lucas Oil Stadium. Benny Snell will kick things off with running backs March 1. Conrad will be tested the following day. Josh Allen’s time to shine is Sunday March 3, while the defensive backs will be tested Monday, the final day of the combine.
You will find wall-to-wall coverage on the NFL Network, but if you don’t want to be completely inundated with dudes running around in their underwear, KSR will have highlights from every Wildcat.
