Southern Illinois Salukis (7-5)


12 FCS players invited to NFL Combine

(Stats Perform) - The FCS contingent headed to the NFL Combine has dropped yet again this year.

The NFL invited 337 players, but only 12 from the FCS, to its annual pre-draft scouting spectacle, which will be held Feb. 23-March 2 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. That's down from 14 FCS prospects last year and 20 just two years ago.

Included were three players from Rhode Island - wide receivers Isaiah Coulter and Aaron Parker and offensive guard Kyle Murphy - the first FCS school with a trio since Jacksonville State in 2017.
