Wide receiver Chris Brown, defensive tackle Sheldon Day, wide receiver Will Fuller, offensive lineman Nick Martin, defensive end Romeo Okwara, running back C.J. Prosise, cornerback KeiVarae Russell, safety Elijah Shumate, linebacker Jaylon Smith and offensive lineman Ronnie Stanley were all invited to the combine.
