Michigan State’s success on the field the past two seasons is resulting in plenty of opportunities for its players.
Six former Spartans were invited to the NFL Combine at the end of the month in Indianapolis. Wisconsin had eight players on the list while Penn State and Iowa had seven. Michigan had three players.
Quarterback Kirk Cousins and defensive tackle Jerel Worthy will likely get the most attention of the Spartans, but each seem almost certain to hear their named called during the NFL Draft that runs April 26-28.
Joining Cousins and Worthy at the combine are running back Edwin Baker, wide receiver B.J. Cunningham, wide receiver Keshawn Martin and safety Trenton Robinson.
It was a little surprising not to see tight end Brian Linthicum on the list. Linthicum had an impressive week of practice at the Senior Bowl and is another Spartan who is likely to get selected at the end of April.
