Notre Dame Football: Tracking 2014 NFL Combine Results for Former Irish Stars

Indianapolis serves as the epicenter of the NFL this week, with the annual NFL Scouting Combine taking place at Lucas Oil Stadium. Over four days, the top prospects from college football will be evaluated by NFL coaches, scouts and general managers, a very important step as team's set their draft board. 

For nine former Notre Dame players, the combine serves as an opportunity to impress. While Zack Martin, Louis Nix and Stephon Tuitt will fight to be drafted in the first round, prospects like George Atkinson and Bennett Jackson look to make an impression as a potential late-round pick. 

For those looking for evidence that the Irish football program continues to improve, the attendance figures at the combine serve as an important datapoint. Notre Dame falls only behind Alabama and LSU for invitations this year.

The 17 prospects invited over a two-year period are more than Notre Dame had in the five previous combines and puts the Irish in lofty territory falling behind just LSU (24), Alabama (22), Florida State (22) and Florida (18) over the last two seasons. 

Let's take a look at the nine former Irish standouts and follow their progress throughout the combine.
