Clemson, Florida State lead ACC's NFL combine invites

It should come as no surprise that Clemson led the ACC with eight players invited to the NFL scouting combine later this month in Indianapolis, while Florida State was next with six.

NC State, with five players invited, tied for third with Miami.

In all, 43 ACC players got invited to showcase their skills among hundreds of others as they vie for NFL draft position. Clemson linebacker Travis Blanks is the only ACC underclassman to declare early who wasn't invited to the combine.

Wake Forest was the only ACC school that won't have a player at the combine.
