The NFL Combine is an annual, week-long showcase of the top college football athletes in front of executives and team personnel for all 32 NFL teams.

This year, however, there will be no central location for the workout portion of the combine and all interviews will be conducted virtually due to the pandemic. NFL personnel will have the opportunity to watch workouts at the individual school’s pro days on their respective college campuses.

Despite not having a centralized location for workouts, the NFL released a list of 323 prospects that would have been invited to the combine. Of those invited, 61, or nearly 20 percent, have played or been an active player during the year that team played in the Rose Bowl Game.

Leading the way is Ohio State with 13 players invited to the combine that have played in The Granddaddy of Them All. The two teams from the 2021 Rose Bowl Game, Alabama and Notre Dame, both had 11 players invited. Oregon and Georgia each had six players invited. Every team that has played in the Rose Bowl Game dating back to January 1, 2017, had at least one player invited.

For the complete list, see below. Keep in mind, the list includes players who were active the year the team played in the Rose Bowl Game. For example, Justin Fields is not included for Ohio State because he was not on Ohio State’s or Georgia’s roster the year they played in the Rose Bowl Game.
