Geremy Davis (Lawrenceville, Ga.) and Byron Jones (New Britain, Conn.), who both served as senior captains for the 2014 season, will be among the NFL prospects working out for scouts, coaches and executives from Feb. 17-23 at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
The former Huskies will seek to improve their draft stock with interviews, individual workouts and position drills during their time in Indianapolis.
Davis concluded his career in 2014 as the most prolific receiver of UConn's FBS era. In 46 games from 2011-14, the 6-3 wideout recorded 165 receptions and 2,292 receiving yards, both the most for any player at Connecticut since the Huskies moved to the FBS in 2002. Davis also posted at least one reception in the final 36 games of his career, tying a program record.
Overall in UConn history, he is in the top-six in receiving yards and receptions. In the 2013 season, Davis became the first player in UConn's FBS era to post a 1,000-yard season, hauling in 71 passes for 1,085 yards. No performance was more impressive than a 15-catch, 207-yard day on Dec. 7. 2013 against Memphis, a contest that saw Davis set the UConn single-game record for receptions and record the fifth-highest single-game receiving yardage performance. He was named a captain prior to the 2014 season and finished his career with seven touchdown receptions and six 100-yard receiving games.
Also a team captain in 2014, Jones concluded his career in '14 after starting 37 games in 43 career games in the secondary over the last four seasons. Playing at safety and cornerback during his time in Storrs, Jones finished with 223 tackles, 18 passes defended and eight interceptions in four years. He posted a career-high 88 tackles while playing at safety during the 2012 season, then set new career-bests with eight pass breakups and three interceptions in 2013 after converting to cornerback.
Despite an injury limiting his 2014 season to seven games, the 6-1 defensive back made history on Oct. 12, 2014 at USF. Jones returned an interception 70 yards for a touchdown in the contest, becoming the third player in program history with a fumble return and interception return for a score in his career. The fumble recovery for a score also came against South Florida, on Oct. 15, 2011.
