Former Kansas University receivers Dezmon Briscoe and Kerry Meier and safety Darrell Stuckey have been invited to participate in the NFL Combine, held Feb. 24 through March 2 in Indianapolis, Ind., the school announced Tuesday.

Briscoe, who decided to forgo his senior season to enter the NFL Draft, is coming off a junior season in which he caught 84 passes for 1,337 yards and nine touchdowns and was named first-team all-Big 12 by the league's coaches and was a third-team all-American selection by The Sporting News.

Meier set a school record with 102 receptions last season, finishing the year with 985 yards and eight touchdowns and was a second-team all-Big 12 selection. After making the transition from quarterback following his red-shirt freshman season, Meier went on to log school records for career receptions (226), season receptions (102 in 2009) and game receptions (16 vs. Iowa State in 2009) from the receiver position.

Stuckey, who turned in a game-high seven tackles during last month's East-West Shrine Game, concluded his career with 295 career tackles, the second-most by a Kansas defensive back in school history. He earned all-Big 12 first-team honors in 2008, and was an honorable-mention selection after finishing with 93 tackles last fall.

The three are vying to become the first Kansas players drafted into the NFL since defensive back Aqib Talib (first round), offensive lineman Anthony Collins (fourth round), Derek Fine (fourth round) and Marcus Henry (sixth round) were selected following the 2007 season.

No Kansas players were taken in last year's draft.

There has to be a team that will use Meier in the wildcat...

Reesing could possibly have a good career in the CFL.
