PITTSBURGH—Three University of Pittsburgh football products will participate in the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine held this month in Indianapolis, Ind.
The former Pitt standouts to receive invitations are defensive lineman Aaron Donald, quarterback Tom Savage and wide receiver Devin Street.
Donald, a Penn Hills graduate, was the most decorated — and dominant — defensive player of the 2013 college football season. A unanimous first team All-American, he totaled 59 tackles, 28.5 tackles for loss, 11 sacks, 16 QB hurries, four forced fumbles and a blocked extra point in 13 games.
Donald finished as the NCAA statistical champion in tackles for loss, averaging an FBS-best 2.2 per game. He also ranked 13th nationally in sacks (0.85 avg.) and 13th in forced fumbles (tied, 0.31 avg.).
The 6-foot, 285-pound Donald was selected the winner of the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, Chuck Bednarik Award, Outland Trophy and Rotary Lombardi Award. He was also named the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Defensive Player of the Year by the league's coaches and media, making him one of the most decorated players in Pitt football history.
