The NFL has released its list of the more than 300 prospects invited to the NFL Combine and four Huskies have received an invitation: Danny Shelton, Shaq Thompson, Hau’oli Kikaha and Marcus Peters.
The combine is scheduled for Feb. 17-23.
Some have projected Shelton, Thompson and Peters as first-round prospects. Shelton is seen by some as a potential top-10 pick, and he’s ranked as the No. 5 prospect on this list.
Thompson is considered one of the most “freakish” athletes entering the draft, though questions remain about what position he will play in the NFL.
