Foursome Invited to NFL Combine
Tuesday, January 12, 3:00 p.m. PST
Four Ducks have been invited to attend the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine, Feb. 24 to March 2, in Indianapolis, Ind. The UO contingent will be made up of LeGarrette Blount, Ed Dickson, Walter Thurmond III and T.J. Ward.
Walter Thurmond expects to be recovered enough from his Sept. 26 knee injury to participate in some of the drills at the combine.
Excluded from the guest list – at least for now – is Will Tukuafu. Considered among the top defensive ends in the Pac-10 this past season by the coaches, the second-team all-Pac-10 choice may be forced to wait until Oregon’s pro day, tentatively scheduled for April 2, to put his talents on display for NFL scouts.
Among Pac-10 teams, USC had the most invitations (8), followed by Arizona State (5). Oregon, Cal and Stanford each had four. Underclassmen and some additional seniors will be added at a later date.
