NFL combine invitee: Tyler Jones, OL, N.C. State, (Stephenson) 

Twenty-five former Georgia high school football players have been invited to the NFL 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 N.C. State offensive lineman Tyler Jones:

Tyler Hall-Jones, 6-3, 306, OL, N.C. State, Stephenson, Stone Mountain. He played left tackle for the Wolfpack, but projects as a guard in the NFL. He was suspended for his role in a post-game fight after the North Carolina game. He can play in a zone block scheme like the one the Falcons’ utilize.
