Posted by Chris Brown on February 15, 2017 – 12:15 pm

The NFL has released their NFL Combine player invite list. Here’s a breakdown of the 325 pro prospects by position.

Wide receiver typically heads the list in terms of number and that was no different this year with 58 wideouts on the invite list for Indianapolis. Probably the biggest drop in numbers from last year is on the defensive line. Last year there were 59 defensive linemen invited. This year it’s just 48.

In what’s seen as a weak offensive line class, the numbers are down at offensive tackle from 25 last year to just 18 this year. Quarterback is also down from 19 last year to 15 this year.

QB – 15
RB – 33
WR – 58
TE – 19
OL – 43 (OT – 18; G/C – 26)
DL – 48 (DT – 21; DE – 27)
LB – 37 (OLB – 25; ILB – 12)
CB – 35
S – 26
P/K/LS – 11
