On Wednesday, the NFL announced the list of 323 draft prospects invited to take part in the scouting combine, and former CU tackle William Sherman is on the list.
Sherman, a junior last season, elected to forgo his final season at CU to declare for the draft. The 6-foot-4, 310-pound Sherman was named second-team All-Pac-12 by coaches and media last season. Sherman is the 11th player in CU history to declare early for the draft.
Typically, the combine takes place in Indianapolis and brings scouts and front office personnel from all NFL teams. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the combine will be virtual. Workouts will take place at pro days conducted on college campuses, while all interviews and psychological testing will be done virtually. NFL teams will have access to video of the workouts.
In addition to Sherman, former Buffs defensive lineman Mustafa Johnson is also hoping to be selected in the draft.
