Nick Fitzgerald of Mississippi State.

NFL combine invitee: Nick Fitzgerald, QB, Mississippi State (Richmond Hill) 

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 Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald:

Nick Fitzgerald, Mississippi State, 6-5, 230. QB, Richmond Hill. He completed 511 of 942 passes (54.2 percent) for 6,207 yards. He threw 55 touchdown passes and had 30 interceptions. He rushed for more than 1,000 yards in two seasons as he finished with 3,504 yards rushing on 581 carries and scored 45 touchdowns on the ground. Some team looking to create a role like New Orleans did with Taysom Hill may be interested in Fitzgerald.
