Big Ten sending 45 to NFL combine

By Adam Rittenberg

The NFL scouting combine is right around the corner, as draft hopefuls will descend on Indianapolis from Feb. 22-28.

The official combine invitation list is out, and 45 Big Ten players are on it.

Any snubs? I'm a bit surprised not to see Michigan TE Kevin Koger, Michigan State TE Brian Linthicum, Northwestern QB Dan Persa, Minnesota WR Da'Jon McKnight, Wisconsin S Aaron Henry and Penn State S Nick Sukay.

Here's the breakdown by team:

Wisconsin: 8 Penn State: 7
Iowa: 7
Michigan State: 6
Ohio State: 4
Illinois: 4
Nebraska: 4
Michigan: 3
Northwestern: 1
Purdue: 1
