Will Parks still upset about not being invited to National Football League combine

The Buffs are four out of 47 Pac-12 players invited to the combine, ranking fourth among the Power 5 conferences, but wayyyy ahead of fifth, the Big 12. Among the 330 college players invited, three were from Oklahoma State. All nine helped Clemson to a 14-1 record and the National Championship this past season. The ACC received 60 invites and the Big Ten received 51.

The NFL released on Wednesday the list of players who have been invited to the annual evaluations of pro prospects in Indianapolis.

Yes, that's more than Alabama.

The combine will be held February 28-March 6 in Indianapolis. Florida State had eight players land on the list, while Louisville had seven. Last year, it was Ohio State.

Wide receiver Chris Godwin and defensive end Garrett Sickels have received invitations. The scoop comes as a hit to Kelly's draft stock, which was already in a sort of limbo after his season-ending knee injury.

This sort of off-field issues refrain is of course quite commonplace in NFL Draft discussions, but in a draft class studded with thinning talent at QB, one would think that owners and scouts should like to see as many prospects as possible.

Parks went on to be selected by the Denver Broncos in the sixth round of the draft. Shaq Lawson was a first-round selection at the 2016 draft.
