Rhode Island boasts trio of prospects at NFL Combine

(Stats Perform) - Schools below the FBS have a hard-enough time getting one prospect invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, so having three is extraordinary.

It has occurred on the FCS level this year, but not with one of the powers that usually come to mind, such as national champ North Dakota State or runner-up James Madison.

Rhode Island has three of the 12 former FCS players who help comprise 337 overall prospects at the annual pre-draft spectacle, which runs through March 2 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. With wide receivers Isaiah Coulter and Aaron Parker and offensive guard Kyle Murphy, URI is the first FCS school to boast a trio since Jacksonville State in 2017.
