Blog: Large contingent from Georgia invited to NFL combine

Georgia will be well-represented at the NFL combine later this month.

Eleven former Bulldogs are invited to Indianapolis for the pre-draft workouts, interviews and medical evaluations that are held from Feb. 20-26.

The group consists of linebackers Jarvis Jones and Alec Ogletree, defensive linemen John Jenkins, Kwame Geathers, Cornelius Washington and Abry Jones, safeties Bacarri Rambo and Shawn Williams, cornerback Sanders Commings and receivers Tavarres King and Marlon Brown.

Jones, Ogletree and Geathers were juniors who entered the draft.

Brown is coming off a torn ACL sustained on Nov. 3. He said in late December that he expected to start jogging by the end of this month so he shouldn’t be taking part in any on-field testing or drills.

Georgia didn’t quite have the most players going from the SEC. LSU has 13 players from the list of 333 invited.
