Nebraska football will have four representatives at the NFL Combine.
Nebraska Football will have four players headed to the NFL Combine. Defensive tackle Darrion Daniels, cornerback Lamar Jackson, defensive lineman Khalil Davis, and defensive lineman Carlos Davis were all invited to go to the combine.
Daniels and Jackson played well during the Senior Bowl. Word on the street is that they were impressive during practices. Now, they will look to further impress NFL teams. The fact that for Nebraska players were invited to the Combine is encouraging. As Nebraska continues to try and rebuild the program, that is something they can point to as a measure of success.

I’m honestly not surprised by these invites. That a quartet of players performed at a high level during the 2019 season. Now, they will be rewarded for their hard work and effort. Jackson in particular should be able to find a home in the National Football League. As the NFL becomes more of a passing league, teams are going to look for players that can shut down the passing attack.
I’ll be interested to see how these four perform at the Combine. Daniels and Jackson have already put together a solid body of work from the Senior Bowl. Now, it’s time for the Daniels brothers to show what they can do. The answer in short to that is that they can do a little bit of everything. They are very apt at stopping the run, and can rush the passer a little bit. I would’ve liked to have seen more of a pass rush out of them last year, but they still were able to disrupt plays coming out of the backfield.
Hopefully, these four are just the beginning in terms of players being invited to the combine. Scott Frost is definitely trying to build a program that gives players a chance to go to the National Football League. The more players that go, the better it will be for Scott Frost and his staff. In particular, these next two classes will be crucial for them in terms of developing players. If they can help these players reach a fraction of their potential, that would be great for the program moving forward.
