The Missouri Tigers will have a handful of players attending the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine, while the Kansas Jayhawks have just one representative receiving an invite. The Kansas St. Wildcats were excluded altogether. While the list of snubs to this year's Combine in Indianapolis is long, one Wildcats player seems to stand out.
Wes Bunting of the National Football Post recently posted a rundown of the notable snubs among NCAA offensive players. Wildcats running back Bryce Brown was near the top of his list.
Watching him run in Lane Kiffin's zone scheme as a freshman, the guy was an impressive back with a lot of natural talent. He was the number one ranked recruit out of high school, ahead of Trent Richardson in 2009 and no doubt has the skill set to play in the league. The biggest question mark for him going forward is his overall character.
If all goes well, Brown will still be selected in the draft as a standout running back. It is a shame that he will miss out on his chance to personally impress the NFL scouts and evaluators at the Combine.
