INDIANAPOLIS – Ole Miss’ Brandon Bolden and Bobby Massie are among the official invitees to the NFL Scouting Combine, the league announced Tuesday.

More than 300 prospects will participate in the Combine, Feb. 22-28 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Top executives, coaching staffs, player personnel departments and medical personnel from all 32 teams will be on hand to evaluate the nation’s top college football players eligible for the upcoming NFL Draft.

A running back from Baton Rouge, La., Bolden finished his career ranked second in school history in both total touchdowns and rushing TDs, third in all-purpose yards and fourth in rushing yards. He was an All-SEC honoree in 2010 and named Ole Miss’ Most Valuable Senior by the Jackson Touchdown Club in 2011.

Massie elected to bypass his senior season to enter the draft. The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder from Lynchburg, Va., played in every game the last three seasons, starting the last 29 at right tackle. Massie blocked for 14 individual 100-yard rushing performances, including a pair of 200-yard outbursts.

Ole Miss has a rich tradition of producing NFL talent, including 278 draft picks and 19 first-round selections. There are currently 24 Rebels in the league, and 16 started games for their respective clubs in 2011.
