Tennessee punter Britton Colquitt received an invitation Monday to next month's NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.
"It’s great," Colquitt said. "Since I wasn’t invited and now I’m invited, it was just a great feeling, you know. I can’t imagine the feeling if I get drafted or picked up by a team if this feels that good. I was pumped about it."
Colquitt, whose brother Dustin punts for the Kansas City Chiefs, received a sixth to seventh round projection from the NFL after the 2007 season.
Five other UT players have been invited to the four-day scouting event, held from Feb. 19-22: Tailback Arian Foster, offensive linemen Anthony Parker and Ramon Foster, defensive tackle Demonte Bolden and defensive end Robert Ayers.
In addition to the combine, former UT players will have a chance to work out for NFL scouts in the Neyland-Thompson Sports Center during Tennessee's pro day this spring.
