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.
