Four of Oregon State's standouts from the 2007 season have received invitations to participate in the 2008 NFL Combine, according to OSUBeavers.com. The Combine is held February 20-26 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The players will get a chance to perform in front of NFL coaches, scouts, and media. For some, it can boost draft status, and for others, the opposite.
For instance, take a guy like Mike Hass. He catches everything, runs perfect routs, but runs a 4.61 at the combine. Tenths of seconds matter there, and it turns out that 4.6 isn't what the scouts were looking for.
Schuening and Serna will be the first Beavers at the Combine, arriving February 20. Bernard arrives February 21 and Smith February 22.
