With NFL Combine starting this week, we are getting closer to the NFL Draft. There’s a lot to take in this year with former Notre Dame Fighting Irish players. Eight players were invited to the combine, and NFL.com has ten player profiles with grades and evaluations readily available.

Sam Mustipher was not invited to the combine — nor was he listed with a grade. It should be noted that only Sean Rawlings (Mississippi St. Bulldogs) was listed with a grade at center.

  • 9.00-10 Once-in-lifetime player
