Indiana Football: Hoosiers at the NFL Combine 2019

Three former Indiana football stars participated in the NFL Draft Combine in Indianapolis over the last few days.

Below is a summary of their performance at the annual event.

The 2019 NFL Draft begins on April 25 in Nashville, Tennessee.

DAN GODSIL

Godsil was a four year long snapper and three year short snapper for the Hoosiers.  He has a reasonable opportunity to be a late round selection but in any event has a good shot at being invited to a camp and making a roster.

He was the lone long snapper invited to the event, and his vertical and broad jump marks were combine records for the position.

  • 40-yard dash:  5.0
  • 225 pound bench press:  16
  • Vertical jump: 34.5
  • Broad jump: 118.0
  • 3-cone drill: 7.56
  • 20-yard shuttle: 4.55

Godsil caught up with BTN after his performance:

BRANDON KNIGHT

Knight was 2018 Honorable mention All-Big Ten (coaches and media).  During his senior campaign, Knight started all 12 games at right tackle and allowed just three sacks in 904 snaps.

He projects as an interior lineman at the next level and is expected to come off the board in day three of the draft.

Based on the NFL website, Knight did not participate in the testing portion of the combine, but he did meet with representatives of the various teams.

JONATHAN CRAWFORD

Crawford became the first Hoosier (along with Godsil) and the 12th Big Ten player to start 50 games.  Crawford is one of only four IU players to appear in 50 games.  He started every game since his arrival at Indiana. Crawford shares eighth on the program’s career list with nine interceptions.

At a minimum Crawford should get a training camp invite.

  • 225 pound bench press:  16 (tied 14th place)
  • Vertical jump: 31.5 (21st)
  • Broad jump: 115 (tied 20th)
