When the NFL Combine gets underway later this month at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis former Hoosiers Dan Feeney and Devine Redding will be there to do what they can to impress NFL teams. The IU offensive lineman and IU running back have been invited to participate in the NFL Combine, which gets started on February 28th. Below is the release from IUHoosiers.com on Feeney and Redding being invited to this prestigious event.
A two-time captain, Feeney (2015-16) became just the fourth player in program history to earn first team All-America status twice and just the third to earn first team honors in back-to-back seasons: Anthony Thompson (1988-89), John Isenbarger (1967-68) and Pete Pihos (1943, 45).
He started the first 41 games of his career at right guard and the final five at right tackle. In those 46 games, Feeney allowed just two sacks in 3,355 snaps.
Redding declared for the NFL Draft on Jan. 6, 2017. He became the fourth Hoosier to record back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons (2015-16) and the first since Vaughn Dunbar (1990-91).
The Youngstown, Ohio, native ranks seventh in rushing attempts (508), 11th in rushing yardage (2,252), and tied for 11th in rushing touchdowns (17) and 100-yard rushing games (8) on IU's career lists. Redding averaged 4.4 yards per carry in 36 career games (17 starts). He caught 27 passes for 146 yards and two TDs for 2,497 all-purpose yards.
