Four Frogs headed to NFL combine
By Richard Durrett
Four TCU players -- deep snapper Clint Gresham, defensive end Jerry Hughes, offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse and linebacker Daryl Washington -- will attend the NFL combine Feb. 24 - March 2 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Gresham, from Corpus Christi, is the latest addition to that group (he accepted his invitation Friday) and probably the least known. He's been the short and long snapper in every game the last three seasons. He started his career at Oklahoma, but transferred to TCU. He was a walk-on before earning a scholarship.
TCU already has a recent long snapper in the NFL in Jared Retkofsky, who just finished his second season with the Steelers. He attended the NFL combine in 2007.
