CUTigers.com has learned that three seniors from the 2005 Clemson football team have been invited to the 2006 NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
QB Charlie Whitehurst, DE Charles Bennett, CB Tye Hill have all been invited to showcase their skills for NFL Scouts.
The 2006 NFL Combine will run from February 22-28.
There are several reasons why the combine has become such an important part of the draft process. Among them:
1. All 32 teams get to watch the prospects in an equal setting, under the same conditions.
2. Owners, general managers and coaches have the opportunity to see most everyone who will be drafted -- all in one place, within a four-day period. There will be plenty of flying around the country for individual workouts in the weeks to come, but the combine is "one-stop shopping."
3. The combine is just another means of helping teams make good decisions, and the escalating cost of signing first-round draft picks makes the decision-making process all the more crucial. Teams spent a total of $160 million on signing bonuses for last year's first-round picks. They want to make sure they know what they're doing. *
