The NFL Scouting Combine got underway in Indianapolis on Friday with offensive linemen and tight ends running, jumping and bench-pressing their way into the hearts of NFL scouts. Offensive Guard Jarvis Harrison and Tight End Cam Clear were two of five Aggies invited to the combine, and each put in a solid showing, with several top ten finishes at their positions.
Offensive Tackle Cedric Ogbhuehi was also at the combine, but only participated in the bench press, as he is still recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL in his knee following the Aggies' final game in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl.
Harrison, from Navasota, Texas, helped anchor the offensive line for one of the top offenses in college football for the past three seasons. While he moved to tackle his senior year, he would play guard in the NFL. Harrison is projected by experts as a seventh round draft pick.
Clear was a junior college transfer who - despite having the size and skills - struggled to find production at A&M, with less than 80 career receiving yards. Despite that, NFL teams seem intrigued by his potential. Like Harrison, Clear is projected as a late-round pick.
The combine continues on Saturday with quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs, including Aggie Trey Williams.
