NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Two former Vanderbilt student-athletes have received invitations to attend the NFL Scouting Combine. Quarterback Kyle Shurmur and cornerback Joejuan Williams will represent the Commodores.
The NFL Scouting Combine will be held Feb. 26-March 4 in Indianapolis, where Shurmur and Williams will be evaluated by executives, coaches, player personnel departments and medical personnel from all 32 NFL teams. Tests include: 40-yard dash, bench press (225-pound repetitions), vertical jump, broad jump, 20-yard shuttle, three-cone shuttle, 60-yard shuttle, position-specific drills, physical measurements, interviews and additional evaluations.
Shurmur threw for 3,130 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2018. He also ranks as the most prolific passer in Vanderbilt history, and owns career marks of 64 touchdown passes, 8,865 passing yards and 722 completions.
Williams ranked among the SEC’s top defensive backs in 2018, his second year as a starting cornerback. He topped the league by matching the school record of 18 passes defended, and was tied for second with four interceptions. Both totals represent career highs for Williams.
NFL Network will televise the event from March 1-4.
