Two former Georgia Tech players received invitations to the NFL scouting combine, which begins Feb. 23 in Indianapolis. Adam Gotsis and D.J. White will join more than 300 players invited to work out in front of NFL executives and scouts.
Gotsis is a 6-foot-4, 287-pound defensive tackle from Australia, and White is a 5-10, 188-pound cornerback from McDonough.
The NFL.com scouting report on Gotsis compares him with Jeff Zgonina, who spent 17 seasons in the NFL as a (mostly backup) defensive lineman and special-teams player. He played for seven teams, including a short stint with the Falcons. He played in 219 NFL games, 67 as a starter, and appeared eight games (with no starts) for the Falcons in 1996.
From the scouting report:
“Gotsis is on schedule to play next season provided his medicals check out at the combine. As a two-down player likely to come out on passing downs, there is a ceiling on his draft value, but he should be a solid backup with eventual starter potential.”
