Results from San Jose State Spartans at the NFL Combine

Three former Spartans displayed their athleticism at the NFL combine over the past days.

Tyler Ervin made the biggest splash of the three Spartans at the NFL combine with impressive showings in the 40 yard dash, vertical jump and broad jump. He finished with the 11th best 40 yard dash time of any athlete at the combine and was the second best running back at 4.41. San Jose State fans saw how talented he was as a Spartan, but he has gained national attention with his showings at the combine, and that he is every bit as athletic as the nation's top backs.

Ervin finished with 1,601 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns in his senior year. He added 334 receiving yards with 2 touchdowns. He also had five touchown returns over his SJSU career.
