Seven invited to NFL Scouting Combine

Seven Penn Staters were invited to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine to be held in Indianapolis from Feb. 18-24. Defensive end Aaron Maybin, center A.Q. Shipley, wide receiver Derrick Williams, tackle Gerald Cadogen, wide receiver Deon Butler, cornerback Lydell Sargeant and wide receiver Jordan Norwood will likely take part in the week-long event that has often been called a meat market.

For a player like Maybin, who could go in the first round of the draft, it might not be beneficial to attend, so he could skip the combine. If he does he'll likely perform for scouts at Penn State's Pro Day, which is tentatively scheduled for March. 18.
