Twenty-five former Georgia high school football players have been invited to the scouting combine to be held Feb. 26-March 4 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Georgia’s representation is tied for third most with California and trails Florida (51) and Texas (31), according to NFL.com. Ohio is next with 20. There are 338 invitees overall.
Today, we’ll take a look at USC right tackle Chuma Edoga, who played at McEachern:
Chuma Edoga, USC, 6-3, 303. OL, McEachern, Powder Springs. He started at right tackle for the Trojans the past two seasons. He had a solid senior season and put forth a strong showing at the Senior Bowl as director Jim Nagy named Edgoa as the overall player of the week in the practice awards. He battled through knee and hip injuries last season. While he played tackle in college, some NFL teams will view him as a guard. He was ejected from a game against Utah State as a sophomore after making physical contact with an official and will have to explain his actions during interviews with NFL teams.
