Twenty-five former Georgia high school football players have been invited to the NFL scouting combine to be held Tuesday through Monday 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 Mississippi defensive back Ken Webster:
Ken Webster, 5-11, 194, DB, Mississippi, Stockbridge. He intercepted two passes, had five pass breakups and made 30 tackles for the Rebels last season. He missed all of the 2016 season because of a left knee injury. Combine testing will be important for Webster and his medical examine will be scrutinized. He’ll also have to explain his arrest on a shoplifting charge to NFL teams during the interview process.
Here are the other players with Georgia connections who have been invited to the combine:
OL - Tyler Jones, N.C. State - Stephenson
WR - Darius Slayton, Auburn - Greater Atlanta Christian
DE - Montez Sweat, Mississippi State - Stephenson
LB - D'Andre Walker, Georgia - Langston Hughes
DB - Ken Webster, Mississippi - Stockbridge
CB - Rock Ya-Sin, Temple - Southwest DeKalb
