The NFL Draft will be here before you know it, and six former TCU Horned Frogs received an invite to the scouting combine, scheduled for Feb. 26 to March 4 in Indianapolis.

Four offensive players and two defenders earned invites out of the 321 prospects who were selected to go. The combine is the best place to improve one’s draft grades with a plethora of individual workouts and opportunities to interview with teams.

Here are the six Horned Frogs that earned an invite:

Running back Emani Bailey: In his first season as a starter Bailey rushed 1,209 yards and eight touchdowns. Bailey also had a strong performance in the Senior Bowl earlier this month.

Tight end Jared Wiley: Wiley had the best season of his career in the Kendal Briles offense with 520 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. Wiley was voted first team All-Big 12.

Offensive tackle Andrew Coker: Four-year started was one of the leaders of the offensive line.

Offensive lineman Brandon Coleman: A team captain, Coleman was voted second team All-Big 12 and started the last three seasons. Coleman could play either guard or tackle at the next level.

Safety Millard Bradford: Bradford was fifth on the team in tackles with 54 while intercepting two passes and returning one for a touchdown.

Cornerback Josh Newton: Newton has a great chance to be the first to hear his name after being a two-time All-Big 12 selection in his two years in Fort Worth. Newton had an interception and nine passes defended.

Notable snubs from the combine include safety Mark Perry and offensive lineman Willis Patrick. Perry had 58 tackles and had a strong week at the Shrine Bowl collegiate all-star game in Frisco earlier this month. Patrick was a second team All-Big 12 selection by the Associated Press, an honorable mention All-Big 12 pick and also had a strong week at the Shrine Bowl.
