STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Four seniors from Connecticut's defense have been invited to participate in this month's NFL Scouting Combine.
Defensive end Trevardo Williams, linebacker Sio Moore and cornerbacks Dwayne Gratz and Blidi Wreh-Wilson will try to impress the scouts during the three-day workout that begins Feb. 23, in Indianapolis.
Williams led the Huskies with 11½ sacks and was credited with 13½ tackles for loss during the 2012 season. He is projected as a linebacker at the next level. He and Moore, who led UConn with 15½ tackles for loss and had eight sacks, were both named to the Big East all-conference first team.
Gratz and Wreh-Wilson made the second team. Each had eight interceptions during their UConn career, including Gratz's 46-yarder for a touchdown in the 2011 Fiesta Bowl.
