David Ubben The NFL released its list of invitations to the scouting combine late this month, and plenty of Big 12 players should be taking part. Here's who got invitations: Sam Acho, DE, Texas Pierre Allen, DE, Nebraska Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska Dan Bailey, K, Oklahoma State Jeremy Beal, DE, Oklahoma Chykie Brown, CB, Texas Curtis Brown, CB, Texas Jalil Brown, CB, Colorado (I hadn't realized it until just now. Were there really three NFL-caliber players in the Big 12 with the same last name at the same position in 2010? Seems so. And none of them are related. Odds, anyone?) Quinton Carter, S, Oklahoma Ugo Chinasa, DE, Oklahoma State Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri DeJon Gomes, DB, Nebraska Eric Hagg, DB, Nebraska Roy Helu Jr., RB, Nebraska Alex Henery, K, Nebraska Ricky Henry, OL, Nebraska Kyle Hix, OL, Texas Kendall Hunter, RB, Oklahoma State Jerrod Johnson, QB, Texas A&M Orie Lemon, LB, Oklahoma State Andrew McGee, CB, Oklahoma State Von Miller, LB, Texas A&M DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma Niles Paul, WR, Nebraska Kevin Rutland, CB, Missouri David Sims, S, Iowa State Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri Nate Solder, OT, Colorado Adrian Taylor, DT, Oklahoma Phil Taylor, DT, Baylor Daniel Thomas, RB, Kansas State Danny Watkins, OT, Baylor Colby Whitlock, DT, Texas Tech Aaron Williams, CB, Texas Keith Williams, OL, Nebraska That's a pretty solid (and lengthy) list. Add it up, and it's 36 players from 11 of 12 Big 12 schools, excluding Kansas. It's a little surprising that Missouri center Tim Barnes wasn't on the list. It's possible it was a mistake, but the first-team All-Big 12er and Rimington Trophy watch lister was named as one of the top centers in the draft last spring by Mel Kiper. Barnes had also earned some favorable reviews at the NFLPA Bowl this week. It was good to see Aggies quarterback Jerrod Johnson get a shot to show scouts if he's regained any more strength in his arm, too. Here's how it ranks by team, as well. 1. Nebraska - 9 2. Oklahoma State - 5 2. Texas - 5 4. Oklahoma - 4 5. Colorado - 3 5. Missouri - 3 7. Baylor - 2 7. Texas A&M - 2 9. Iowa State - 1 9. Kansas State - 1 9. Texas Tech - 1 Originally posted by ESPN.com - Big 12 Blog Click here to view the article.
