Three former Notre Dame football players took part in the NFL Combine in Indianapolis over the weekend.

Tight end Ben Koyack measured in at 6-foot-5, 255 pounds and took part in position drills on Friday. Koyack did not take part in the athletic testing portion of the combine. NFL.com gave Koyack a grade of 5.49, which falls at the top of the category listed as “NFL backup or special teams potential.”

Wide receiver DaVaris Daniels received an invite to the combine despite missing the 2014 season because of an academic suspension. The 6-1, 201-pound Daniels clocked a time of 4.62 seconds in the 40-yard dash, jumped 37 inches in the vertical jump and 122 inches in the broad jump, and recorded 13 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.

Only six wide receivers ran slower 40 times than Daniels on Saturday. His 5.19 grade from NFL.com labeled him as a player with a “better-than-average chance” to make an NFL roster.

Kicker Kyle Brindza, 6-1, 236, was the only specialist who chose to participate in the bench press in addition to his kicking drills. Brindza recorded 14 reps of 225 pounds. NFL.com gave Brindza a 4.85 grade which fell in the category of a player who “should be in an NFL training camp.”
