CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Three former Virginia football players have been invited to the National Football League’s 2020 Scouting Combine. Cornerback Bryce Hall (Harrisburg, Pa.), linebacker Jordan Mack (Lithonia, Ga.) and wide receiver Joe Reed (Charlotte Court House, Va.), all seniors in 2019, each received an invitation. Hall and Mack are recovering from injuries suffered during the 2019 season and are not expected to participate in individual drills.
Hall was a second-team All-America in 2018 and led the nation with 22 pass breakups and was tied for first with 24 passes defended. He started the first six games of the 2019 campaign before suffering a season-ending leg injury against Miami.
Mack, the winner of the ACC’s Jim Tatum Award as the conference’s top football scholar-athlete, played in every game in 2019 except for the Orange Bowl against Florida, which he missed due to a lower leg injury. He appeared in 47 games as a Cavalier and recorded 289 total tackles, 25.5 tackles for loss and 14.5 sacks.
Reed earned first-team All-American honors in 2019 as a kick returner after leading the nation with a 33.2 yards-per-return average. He holds the UVA career kick return record with 3,042 yards and the kick returns record for touchdowns with five. He led UVA with 77 receptions in 2019.
The NFL Scouting Combine takes place in Indianapolis from Feb. 23 to March 2. Top executives, coaching staff, player personnel departments and medical personnel from all 32 NFL teams will be on hand to evaluate the nation’s top college football players eligible for the upcoming NFL Draft.
The 2020 NFL Draft takes place April 23-25 in Paradise, Nevada.
