Beginning March 2, the Auburn Tigers will be well-represented inside Lucas-Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Seven former Tigers have been invited to the 2018 NFL Draft Scouting Combine. The combine, which spans from March 2 to March 5 at the Indianapolis Colts' stadium, serves as a glorified skills challenge for players looking to impress NFL Scouts.
Three Auburn seniors headline the group, including offensive guard Braden Smith, kicker Daniel Carlson and safety Stephen Roberts. Auburn boasts four juniors in running backs Kerryon Johnson and Kamryn Pettway, cornerback Carlton Davis and edge rusher Jeff Holland.
Senior safety Tray Matthews, who led Auburn in tackles in 2016 and was second on the team in 2017, did not receive an invite. Linebacker Tre' Williams was also snubbed from the list despite an eye-opening Senior Bowl week.
Auburn has the eighth-most invites in college football, and the fourth-most in the SEC behind Alabama (14), Georgia (10) and LSU (10).
