With football's offseason now in full swing in both the college and NFL ranks, the focus has shifted towards the 2020 NFL Draft. In preparation for the event, the NFL officially announced the 337-prospect list that has been invited to the NFL Combine. The list included five Nittany Lions – Cam Brown, Yetur Gross-Matos, KJ Hamler, John Reid, and Robert Windsor.

This group will look to continue what is quickly becoming an annual tradition of former Penn Staters blowing up the combine with their performances. From Saquon Barkley to Troy Apke, Dwight Galt has become famous for helping mold Nittany Lions into not only fantastic football players, but workout warriors, as well.

Gross-Matos, Hamler, and Windsor's inclusions on the list are hardly a surprise, given that the trio is expected to be first, first/second, and third/fourth-round selections in April, respectively. Brown and Reid also earning invitations should help them get on the radar of even more teams as the evaluation period continues.

When the combine does finally roll around, Gross-Matos, Hamler, and Brown may very well all finish close to the top of their respective position groups in the 40-yard dash, and will likely be standouts elsewhere, too. Reid and Windsor should be top-of-the-position performers as well, particularly in agility drills and strength drills, respectively.

The NFL Combine will take place from February 23-March 2 in Indianapolis.
