Irish players Golden at NFL Combine

This year Notre Dame sent eight players to the NFL combine. 4 defensive players and 4 offensive players. They all performed well in their drills and measurables however one of them almost stole the entire NFL Combine Show.

Myles Boykin proved that he belongs, he made the right decision by declaring for the draft and that the ND does produce top quality talent at the skill positions.

We will get to him in a bit.

First let’s cover the 4 defensive players:
