OXFORD – Donte Moncrief, who declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season at Ole Miss, is among those who have been invited to participate at the NFL Scouting Combine later this month.

The combine will be held in Indianapolis from Feb. 22-25 and televised live exclusively on the NFL Network. The NFL Draft is May 8-10.

Moncrief is one of 48 wide receivers invited to the combine. The receivers are scheduled to work out on Sunday, Feb. 23 along with quarterbacks and running backs. Moncrief has been projected as a third or fourth-round pick by many prognosticators, but could enhance his stock with a good showing in front of the combine scouts.

The Raleigh, Miss., native finished his three-year Ole Miss career ranked third in school history in receptions (156), receiving yards (2,371) and receiving touchdowns (20) and second in 100-yard receiving games (9).
