Four Huskies invited to NFL Scouting Combine

Cornerbacks Dwayne Gratz and Blidi Wreh-Wilson, linebacker Sio Moore and defensive end Trevardo Williams were among the more than 300 draft prospects invited to the NFL Scouting Combine which runs from Feb. 20-26 in Indianapolis.

Gratz had three of UConn's six interceptions during the 2012 season, had 53 tackles and broke up 11 passes. Wreh-Wilson, a two-time captain, had 47 tackles as a senior and his lone interception came during the win at Louisville. Moore led UConn with 15.5 tackles for losses, was second on the squad with eight sacks and had 72 tackles. Williams, who finished as UConn's career leader in sacks, had a team-high 11.5 sacks as a senior and also had 13.5 tackles for losses.

Moore is the highest rated player from UConn in CBS' database as he is ranked 82nd overall and eighth among outside linebacker. Williams, who projects as a linebacker in the NFL, is the 12th rated outside linebacker and No. 115 overall player.

Wreh-Wilson is the No. 12 rated cornerback and No. 105 prospect while Gratz is 16th among corners and 143rd overall.

Stratford's Mark Harrison, a former receiver at Rurtgers, also received an inviation. Harrison led Rutgers with 44 catches as a senior.

New London's Jordan Reed, a tight end at Florida who is entering the draft after his junior season, is also headed to the combine as is Meriden's John Jenkins, a defensive tackle out of Georgia.

UConn's Ryan Griffin was not among the 19 tight ends invited to the combine.
