Three former Washington football players have earned invitations to the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine, which will be held Feb. 23 through March 1 in Indianapolis.
Linebacker Mason Foster, quarterback Jake Locker and safety Nate Williams have all earned a trip to Indianapolis, where they'll be put through a long series of drills, examinations, workouts and meetings as NFL teams prepare for the 2011 Draft, which will be held April 28-30.
Foster and Locker both participated in the Senior Bowl last month in Mobile, Ala., while Williams played in the East-West Shrine Game in Orlando, Fla.

Also, Locker will compete in the 2011 All-Star Football Challenge, a skills competition that will air live on ESPN2 today (4:00 p.m. Pacific Time). Locker will compete with fellow QBs Ryan Mallett (Arkansas) and Andy Dalton (TCU). The broadcast will also be shown Saturday at 8:30 p.m. (ESPN2), Sunday at 1:00 p.m. (ESPN2) and Feb. 13 at 1:30 p.m. (ESPN).
