Tyler Huntley Snubbed By NFL Combine, Reacts On Twitter
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former University of Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley was not invited to this year’s NFL Combine.
Huntley reacted to the news on Twitter simply with a laughing emoji.
NFL MVP and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson responded to Huntley’s with a shushing emoji.
“After the season he has had, it is surprising to me that he didn’t get an invite,” said Tom Hackett, KSL Sports contributor and sideline reporter for the Utah football game.
Huntley had his best year this last season, at one point the school put on a Heisman campaign for the senior quarterback.
During his senior season, Huntley threw for 3,092 yards, had 19 touchdowns and only four interceptions. He led the Utah football team to the Pac-12 Championship game where they lost to Oregon.
