Pitt seniors Avonte Maddox, Jester Weah and Ryan Winslow have been invited to the NFL Combine on Feb. 27-March 5 in Indianapolis, according to a Tweet from coach Pat Narduzzi.

Maddox, 5-foot-9, 180 pounds, is a four-year starter at cornerback. He recorded eight interceptions, 34 pass breakups and seven sacks, including four in 2017.

Weah, 6-3, 210, led Pitt in receiving yardage the past two seasons, totaling 1,568. He caught 14 touchdown passes among his 77 career receptions.

Winslow, 6-6, 225, has handled Pitt's punting duties exclusively for the past four seasons. He led the ACC this season with a career-high average of 44.5 yards and was named to the All-ACC first team. He punted 226 times at Pitt, with 70 dropped inside the 20-yard line.

Three other Pitt players — juniors Jordan Whitehead, Quadree Henderson and Brian O'Neill — have declared for the NFL Draft. The Combine's official invitation list will be posted on nflcombine.net in early February.
