Make it eight

I thought there was something wrong with Penn State's release about its invites to the NFL Scouting Combine. Defensive end Maurice Evans was mistakenly left off the list. He makes it eight Lions.

Make it eight

I thought there was something wrong with Penn State's release about its invites to the NFL Scouting Combine. Defensive end Maurice Evans was mistakenly left off the list. He makes it eight Lions.

I was a little surprised by a few of the choices/slights. Guard Rich Ohrnberger should have been invited. You could argue that defensive backs Anthony Scirrotto and Tony Davis should have been there, but I could make the same case that they don't. In two years, Scirrotto went from definite draft pick to guy that maybe should have pursued baseball. I can't tell you how many South Jersey guys insist he was better in baseball than football. Who really knows? He still has time to try baseball. Davis had a better year than Sargeant, but Sargeant is faster and that's the most important thing when judging a cornerback in the pros.
