The NFL Draft Combine will start tomorrow and 4 former Louisville Cardinals were invited to partake in the combine. The combine could drastically improve the draft stock of some former Cardinals, and it will be interesting to see how some of these former Cardinals perform.

The NFL Combine invited defensive back Jarvis Brownlee, wide receiver Jamari Thrash, and running backs Jawhar Jordan and Isaac Guerendo

Jawhar Jordan had a big season with the cardinals, as he tallied 1,128 yards and 13 touchdowns with the Cardinals this season. He finished 2nd in the ACC in yards, and 3rd in total rushing yards. Jordan was also key in Louisville's ranked wins over #10 Notre Dame and #20 Duke, where he rushed for 2 touchdowns in both games.

Isaac Guerendo also had a great season with Louisville where he ran for 810 yards and 11 touchdowns. Guerendo started to light it up towards the end of the season, where to ran for 161 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Holiday Bowl against USC and ran for 3 touchdowns against Virginia Tech in a 34-3 win in November.

Jamari Thrash was electric in the receiving game for Louisville last season, even if his end to teh season wasn't as electric as the start of the season was for him. Thrash had 63 catches for 858 yards and 6 touchdowns last season, and had his season high 169 yards and 1 touchdown against Indiana.

Jarvis Brownlee was regarded as one of the best defensive players for Louisville last season, and his performance and pick against Sam Hartman in the Senior Bowl definitely improved his draft stock. Brownlee finished 2023 with 30 tackles and 1 interception.
