Texas Football: What Each Longhorn Invitee Must Prove at the 2014 NFL Combine

Four Texas Longhorns have been invited to the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, which begins Feb. 19.

For three of them, it is a great chance to improve their draft stock.

The group is headlined by star defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat, who is looking to ride a stellar senior season into a first- or second-round selection. To do that, he must prove he has the durability to be an every-week player at the professional level while also showing the ability to play outside linebacker.

Thanks to a strong showing at the Senior Bowl, wide receiver Mike Davis has already gotten a head start on improving his draft stock. After surprising many with his polish at the position, he will look to follow in former Texas receiver Marquise Goodwin's footsteps in using the combine to vault his way into an early-round selection.

Rounding out the crew are defensive tackle Chris Whaley and kicker Anthony Fera. Whaley will be an interesting story, given his recent ACL injury. Fera, on the other hand, will simply be along for the ride as his teammates look to impress the scouts in Indianapolis.
