Big Ten sending 45 to NFL combine

The NFL scouting combine is right around the corner, as draft hopefuls will descend on Indianapolis from Feb. 22-28.

The official combine invitation list is out, and 45 Big Ten players are on it.

Any snubs? I'm a bit surprised not to see Michigan TE Kevin Koger, Michigan State TE Brian Linthicum, Northwestern QB Dan Persa, Minnesota WR Da'Jon McKnight, Wisconsin S Aaron Henry and Penn State S Nick Sukay.

Here's the breakdown by team:

Wisconsin: 8

Penn State: 7

Iowa: 7

Michigan State: 6

Ohio State: 4

Illinois: 4

Nebraska: 4

Michigan: 3

Northwestern: 1

Purdue: 1
