While football season is only a few weeks into our memory it is already time for the this year’s NFL Draft prospects to begin the annual dog and pony show that is the NFL Combine.  This year four Blue Devils were invited to participate and showcase their skills and abilities before scouts from every NFL team in hopes of being selected in the upcoming NFL Draft, signed as a rookie free agent, or just invited to camp to compete for a roster spot.

The Blue Devils are led by star receiver Jamison Crowder and offensive lineman Laken Tomlinson.  Both Crowder and Tomlinson are thought to be locks to be drafted in May’s draft, barring unforeseen events.  Quarterback and all time wins leader Anthony Boone and offensive tackle Takoby Cofield are hoping to solidify spots in the draft or, at the very least, put themselves on a team’s radar.
