B1G players on initial NFL combine list

My apologies for posting this a bit late, but the initial invitations list is out for the 2012 NFL scouting combine, which takes place next month in Indianapolis. This list does not include the five Big Ten juniors who have declared for the draft.

Let's check out which players made the initial list (a full list will come out later this month).

Quarterbacks

Running backs

Wide receivers

Offensive linemen

Defensive tackles

Defensive ends

Outside linebackers

Cornerbacks

Safeties

  • Trenton Robinson, Michigan State

Kickers

Punters

There are no Big Ten tight ends, inside linebackers or long snappers on the initial list.

I'm a bit surprised not to see several names, including Penn State WR Derek Moye. Still, wide receiver was a position of strength for the Big Ten in 2011, along with defensive tackle.
