The National Football League announced which players will be invited to participate in this year's NFL Combine.

The following UCLA Bruins have been invited to the NFL Combine: QB Brett Hundley, CB Anthony Jefferson, ILB Eric Kendricks, DT Ellis McCarthy, and DE Owamagbe Odighizuwa.

This means that every UCLA Senior (or Graduate in the case of Hundley) starter has been invited to join in. McCarthy is the only UCLA underclassman who has been invited.

Former Bruin FS Tevin McDonald also received an invitation.

The NFL Scouting Combine is an important event in advance of the NFL Draft. Over 300 prospects will join in the 2015 Combine hoping to prove to team scouts that they deserve to be drafted by an NFL team. This year's event will be held from Feb. 17-23.

In addition to the main scouting combine, the NFL also hosts a series of regional scouting combines for those not selected to participate in the main combine.

This year's Combine will be televised on NFL Network. The 2015 NFL Draft will be held from April 30 through May 2.
