ESPN: Big Ten sending 45 to NFL combine

Over at ESPN's Big Ten Blog, Adam Rittenberg compiled a list of Big Ten players who were invited to the 2012 NFL combine. Participants were chosen by a selection committee whose goal was to invite "every player that will be drafted in the ensuing NFL Draft." Unfortunately, Michigan doesn't compare too favorably when the 45 names are broken down by team since David Molk, Mike Martin, and Junior Hemingway are U of M's only invitees.

Wisconsin: 8
Penn State: 7
Iowa: 7
Michigan State: 6
Ohio State: 4
Nebraska: 4
Michigan: 3
Northwestern: 1
Purdue: 1

The combine will take place in Indianapolis from February 22-28.
