For years, the NFL Combine has been the chief proving ground for NFL hopefuls. Now that hope is being spread not only to rookies, but younger veterans as well.
Five former HBCU standouts will participate in the first-ever NFL Veterans Combine will take place Sunday at the Arizona Cardinals Practice Facility in Tempe, AZ.
Here are a list of the HBCU players who will be hoping to catch the attention of one of the league’s 32 teams.
- Sherman Carter, C (Tennessee State)
- Saaed Lee, DB (Alabama State)
- Justin Wells, C (St. Augustine’s)
- Jordan Miller, NT (Southern)
- Joe Anderson, WR (Texas Southern)
“Combines have long provided draft eligible players with the forum needed to showcase their skills to NFL teams,” says NFL Director of Football Development Matt Birk. “The NFL Veteran Combine will give veteran free agents a similar opportunity to work out in front of club personnel in a streamlined process.”
