With seven former Michigan State Spartans invited to the 2016 NFL Combine, you would think the list would be complet. However, Spartan Digest feels a couple of key players were left off that have possible NFL futures.
The NFL has released the names of those who will take part in this year's combine in Indianapolis.
While many of the names are not a surprise, two former Spartans will have to take a different road to the NFL as safety R.J. Williamson and offensive guard Donavon Clark did not receive invites.
Who will be heading to Lucas Oil Stadium?
Connor Cook will look to show he made the right decision to pass on the Senior Bowl. Will Cook choose to throw at the combine is not known.
Jack Conklin left the Spartans with a year of eligibility remaining and a good combine showing would help his status as a first round selection.
Shilique Calhoun will look to help his stock value after many felt he was a sure fire first rounder prior to his senior season.
Jack Allen may be the steal of the draft as he’s a pure center who knows how to use leverage.
Lawrence Thomas will look to show off his athletic ability as teams decide if he’s an inside or outside player at the next level.
Joel Heath will look to impress as teams love his physical size. A good showing could net Heath a higher draft position. A poor showing could see him fall into the free agent pool.
