UConn's Davis, Jones invited to NFL Combine

The list of invited players to the NFL Combine were announced today and former UConn stars Geremy Davis and Byron Jones were among those headed to Indianapolis.

Davis, a 6-foot-3 receiver from Lawrenceville, Georgia, led UConn with 44 catches and 521 receiving yards despite missing two games due to injury.

Jones had 24 tackles and two interceptions in seven games during an injury-shortened senior season.

One NFL insider I spoke to recently said that Jones is currently projecting to be in the range of a fourth-round pick although his stock could rise to the second or third round range based on how he performs at the combine and at UConn's pro day on Mar. 31. Davis is currently being viewed as a late-round pick or potential free agent. I am sure plenty of eyes will be on Davis when he runs the 40 at the combine.

Yale's Tyler Varga also received an invite as did former Windsor High star Ryan Delaire, a defensive end out of Towson.

The combine runs from Feb.17-23 and is broken down by position groups. Davis and Varga will be part of the day 2 arrivals with the on-field workouts scheduled for Feb. 21. Delaire's on-field workouts will be held the next day with Jones being a part of the day 4 arrivals and his running, jumping or other drills set for Feb. 23.
