Justin Jackson and Godwin Igwebuike have been invited to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Northwestern’s star running back and safety are already on some mock draft boards before the 2017 season, and their invitation to the Combine was pretty much a given. Jackson finished his career as one of the most accomplished backs in Big Ten history. He finished third in the Big Ten all-time rushing leaders list (including bowl games) and broke a bevy of Northwestern records. The Ball Carrier should get a look in the NFL, regardless of how many carries he got in college. Godwin Igwebuike has been on the NFL’s radar for a while, and USA Today projected him as a fourth-round pick.

The Combine starts on February 27th and the NFL Draft is April 26-28.
