    As every NFL fan awaits the scouting combine in Indianapolis two weeks from now, the Big East will be sending a excellent crop of talent that may gone overlooked against other top tier leagues.

    Among the players invited to workout at Lucas Oil Stadium are 19 seniors from eight programs in addition to four underclassmen that decided to take their talents to the NFL.

    With five players from each of their respective teams attending the combine, West Virginia and Pittsburgh will have the biggest contribution from the league. Rutgers and South Florida only have one player each invited to Indianapolis.

    With that being said, let’s look over the players that will be representing the Big East conference from February 24th through the first of March.
