CSU running back Dee Hart and kicker Jared Roberts have accepted invitations to the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine, which will be held in Indianapolis on Feb. 17-23, according to the University. 

Hart and Roberts will join former teammates quarterback Garrett Grayson and offensive lineman Ty Sambrailo at the combine.

Four representatives from CSU is the most at the combine since 1999 when the Rams sent seven players: Anthony Cesario, Jason Craft, Darran Hall, Mike Newell, Joey Porter, Myron Terry and Damon Washington.

This is the second consecutive year that CSU has been represented by at least three athletes. Last year running back Kapri Bibbs, tight end Crockett Gillmore and offensive lineman Weston Richburg participated in the event.

Hart, who transferred to CSU after graduating from the University of Alabama, led the Rams with 1,275 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns. The 1,275 rushing yards rank eighth-best in school history, while the 16 touchdowns were fifth-most in a single season by a CSU rusher. Hart earned second-team All-Mountain West honors for his performance.

“I was excited to learn of my invitation,” Hart said in a press release. “I look forward to representing Colorado State and showcasing my talent.”

In his three seasons as the Rams kicker, Roberts connected on 77.8-percent of his kicks (42-of-54), making him the most accurate kicker in school history. Additionally, he set a CSU and Mountain West record successfully making 111 consecutive PATs.

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity,” Roberts said. “I’m thankful for all the coaches and teammates who helped me get to this point. I’m excited to continue working hard to prove myself at the combine.”
