Five former TCU standouts have been invited to the 2011 NFL Combine: Offensive tackle Marcus Cannon, quarterback Andy Dalton, defensive end Wayne Daniels and wide receivers Jeremy Kerley and Jimmy Young.

The Combine is held Feb. 23 - March 1 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

*Cannon, rated by ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. as the fifth-best offensive tackle available in the 2011 NFL Draft, is a three-time All-Mountain West Conference selection and a third-team All-American in 2010.

*Dalton was the nation's leader in career wins by an active quarterback this season. He posted a 42-7 record in his four years as a starter and was a three-time bowl game most valuable player. Dalton holds every major TCU passing record and was a two-time MWC Offensive
Player of the Year. He was a finalist for the Manning Award and Johnny Unitas Award while being a semifinalist for the Maxwell Award and Davey O'Brien Award. He finished ninth in Heisman Trophy voting. Dalton set TCU single-season records in 2010 with a 66.1 completion percentage and 27 touchdown passes. He threw just six interceptions.

*Daniels was a first-team All-American as he led the 2010 Horned Frogs with 14 tackles for loss and 6 1/2 sacks. Daniels and Dalton were the only two unanimous first-team All-MWC selections this season. He closed his TCU career by recording two tackles for loss among six
stops in the 21-19 Rose Bowl win over Wisconsin. He opened the season with two sacks in a 30-21 victory over Oregon State.

*Kerley, a first-team All-American as a return specialist, was one of three finalists for the Paul Hornung Award. He was the MWC Special Teams Player of the Year for the second straight season and the league's first-team All-MWCreturn specialist for the third consecutive year. He was one of just two players in the nation to rank in the top 20 in punt returns (12.9 yards) and kickoff returns (27.7 yards) this season. He also led TCU with 56 receptions and 10 touchdown catches.

*Young closed his career as one of the more productive receivers in TCU history. His 2,316 receiving yards rank second on the Horned Frogs' career list, while his 147 receptions place fifth. Young's 13 touchdown receptions are tied for fifth all-time. He was a three-time All-MWC performer. In his final game at TCU, he tied a season-high with five receptions for 57 yards in the Rose Bowl victory
over Wisconsin.
