Breakdown Of The 329 Players Invited To The 2011 NFL Combine

The NFL has announced all 329 combine invites on its Combine Official Invite List.  Ignore the fact that the title of the webpage says it is the 2009 list – it is actually this year’s list of Combine invites.  The Combine will certainly be wide-receiver heavy, with a total of 46 WR of the 329 invites.  Here are the breakdowns:

  • 46 WRs
  • 35 DCs
  • 34 OHs
  • 33 OTs
  • 30 DEs
  • 27 DTs
  • 20 OBs
  • 18 QBs
  • 16 TEs
  • 14 OGs
  • 14 IBs
  • 10 SS
  • 9 FS
  • 8 OCs
  • 5 FBs
  • 5 PKs
  • 4 PTs
  • 1 LS

7 of the players invited are from my alma mater, the University of Florida.  National Champion Auburn has a total of 5 players invited to the NFL Combine, while National Championship runner-up Oregon has 3 players invited to Indianapolis.  12 players from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill have been invited.  Just imagine how good UNC could have been in 2010 had it been able to focus on its games and not have any off-the-field issues and player suspensions.
