SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The NFL Scouting Combine announced that 12 former Utah Utes and Utah State Aggies will be participating in the upcoming combine at the end of February.

Utah had the most players from the school to be invited to the Combine in program history. Also, it’s the fourth most of any school in the country. Utah State had three players invited.

Of those nine players, eight of them played on the defensive side of the ball for the Utes, including defensive end Bradlee Anae, defensive tackles Leki Fotu and John Penisini, linebacker Francis Bernard, cornerbacks Javelin Guidry and Jaylon Johnson, and safeties Terrell Burgess and Julian Blackmon.

The only offensive player that received an invitation was running back and reigning Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year Zack Moss.

A player that did not receive an invite but should have was quarterback Tyler Huntley. The entire Pac-12 conference had 30 invites to the combine with Utah having nine of them.

The Utah State players who received an invitation to the combine, including linebacker Tipa Galeai, quarterback Jordan Love and linebacker David Woodward.

LSU had the most players to get invited with 16, Michigan and Ohio State each had 11 to gather the second-most, followed by Alabama’s 10.

The NFL Scouting Combine will take place in Indianapolis, Indiana from Sunday, February 23 to Monday, March 2.
