At the forefront of this showcase were the Michigan Wolverines, the reigning National Champions, who set a new NFL combine record by securing 18 invites, a testament to their depth and talent across nearly all football positions. This remarkable achievement placed Michigan at the pinnacle of this year's NFL Combine representation, surpassing the previous record (15) held by Georgia's 2021 NFL Draft class.
