According to CollegeFootballNews.com, a part of FOX Sports' Scout.com, one UCLA Bruins football player has been invited to participate in the NFL Combine held in Indianapolis, Indiana, which takes place from Feb. 22-28. That player is senior tight end Cory Harkey.
Harkey started in all 14 of the Bruins games this season but was a much more effective blocking tight end than he was a pass-catching tight end. In fact, he only caught one pass in 2011. That came in the team's Oct. 1 game on the road against Stanford and went for 10 yards. He caught 14 passes his junior year for 140 yards. Harkey was the winner of the Jerry Long "Heart" Award and also the Kenneth S. Washington Award for Outstanding Senior of the Year by the coaching staff at the end of the season.
The Combine will give Harkey a chance to display his athleticism and any attributes he has that will set him apart from others that play the same position.
