Five University of Tennessee players and two from Vanderbilt are among the more than 300 players who have been invited to participate in the 2010 NFL Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
The five Vols who will be in attendance include safety Eric Berry and defensive back Dennis Rogan, as well as defensive tackle Dan Williams, running back Montario Hardesty offensive tackle Chris Scott.
The Commodores will be represented by cornerback Myron Lewis and offensive tackle Thomas Welch.
Also, former Pope John Paul II standout Golden Tate, who won the Fred Biletnikoff Award as college football’s top wide receiver, will be at the Combine.
Of the players with local ties, Berry and Tate are expected to be potential first-round picks, while some draft prognosticators are also high on Williams as one of the best-available defensive tackles after Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh and Oklahoma’s Gerald McCoy, who are both expected to be top 10 selections.
The Combine runs from Feb. 24-March 2. For the full list of 2010 Combine invitees, click here.
