Arizona Products Receive Combine Invites

Numerous players with local connections headed to Indianapolis for pre-draft evaluation


Arizona State RB Kalen Ballage has been invited to the Scouting combine along with four teammates.

The NFL Scouting combine participants have been revealed, and there are many notable names with Arizona ties on the list.

Arizona State only sent one player to the combine a year ago – kicker Zane Gonzalez – but has five players who received invites.

University of Arizona safety Dane Cruikshank has been invited after the program was shut out in 2017, while several former high school stars will also make the trek to Indianapolis after playing well at out-of-state colleges.

The combine is a pre-draft event for NFL clubs in which top prospects are evaluated in a variety of areas, from their physical talent to their mental makeup and medical history.

Below is a list of the players with Arizona connections expected to attend the combine. It will be held from Feb. 27-March 5 at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Colts.
