4. Hampton University

Those who weren't given an invitation:
Ameer Ismail OLB Western Michigan
Steve Baylark HB Massachusetts
Lester Ricard QB Tulane
Matt Maddox OL Illinois
Ean Randolph KR South Florida

That's just the skeleton to the page that was written up but some interesting notes: Ameer Ismail led the NCAA and sacks and TFL's as a weakside linebacker for Western Michigan. Reminds me of another MAC defensive player that didn't get an invite to the Combine(Osi Umenyiora).

Wasn't sure how many Dallas fans live in Dallas and get the chance to read the paper.

Thanks; interesting list.

Willis was "the best athlete available" who I saw as possibly falling to #22. Don't know if the 'Boys would pick him, though, as they don't seem to perceive any problems at LB.

I couldn't figure out why Ismail wasn't invited to the combine. Converted RB (recruited by ND, among others) who's only played LB for a couple of years, yet let the nation in sacks and TFL. I think he'd be an interesting risk by round 6, at least.
