The SEC is slated to have 66 participants at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine, more than any other college conference. There are 330 invited players in total.

The full tally by FBS conference:

SEC: 66
ACC: 60
Big Ten: 51
Pac-12: 46
Big 12: 19
American: 18
Conference USA: 11
MAC: 11
Mountain West: 11
Sun Belt: 5
Independent: 5

The Michigan Wolverines are the most-represented college program, with 14 players invited. Behind them: Alabama and LSU each have 10 invitees, while Clemson, Miami, and Texas A&M each have nine.

Players from just about every college level are included, which is one of the cool things about the Combine. The Big 12 has fallen well behind its Power 5 peers in recruiting, and that’s illustrated well in Combine invitations. The Big 12 is sending just one more player than the best non-power league, the American, and is nowhere near any of its big-revenue peers.

Some notable names not to make the Combine list: Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon and Baylor receiver Ishmael Zamora. Mixon previously punched a woman, while Zamora was caught on tape abusing a dog before last season. Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly is also excluded, reportedly over “off-field issues.”

This year’s draft has 103 early entrants, who are leaving college eligibility on the table to turn pro. That list is represented well at the Combine, but not everybody made it.

The Combine begins Feb. 28, but it starts in earnest with on-field workouts on March 3. It wraps on March 6, ahead of the draft on April 27.
