The NFL released the full list of players that have been invited to the NFL combine that will take place in Indianapolis starting on Feb. 24. One Mountaineer appeared on the list, first-team All-Big 12 left tackle Colton McKivitz.

McKivitz has been drawing interest from NFL scouts even since last season, deciding to return to West Virginia for his senior year in 2019. McKivitz started 47 games in his four-year Mountaineers career and is a two-time Big 12 Co-Offensive Lineman of the year.

He recently played in the Reese’s Senior Bowl on Jan. 25 in Mobile, Alabama. WVU head coach Neal Brown was there to support him.

Here is McKivitz during a senior bowl practice going against Miami’s Trevon Hill. Hill had 4.5 sacks and 9/5 tackles for loss for the Hurricanes this season.

The NFL combine will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana, starting on Feb. 24 and ending on March 2.
