According to CollegeFootballNews.com, five former Hawkeyes have received invites to the 2012 NFL Combine, which will be held next month at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind. Those five players are wide receiver Marvin McNutt, offensive tackle Markus Zusevics, defensive tackle Mike Daniels, linebacker Tyler Nielsen and cornerback Shaun Prater.

The article states juniors have not received invites yet because the deadline to declare for the NFL Draft is Sunday. Offensive tackle Riley Reiff announced earlier this month he would forego his senior season for the draft and has been projected by multiple draft pundits as a first-round pick.

Prater and Zusevics will play in the East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 21, while Daniels and McNutt participate in the Senior Bowl held Jan. 28. Both games will be televised by the NFL Network.
