Clemson seniors Kevin Youngblood and Khaleed Vaughn have been included on the initial list of players requested to attend the NFL Combines in Indianapolis, Indiana. The combine is used to showcase and evaluate the top collegiate prospects available in the 2004 NFL Draft.

The combine begins on February 18th.

"I'm looking forward to it," said Kevin Youngblood right before the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl earlier this week. "It's going to give me a chance to show what I can do."

Some scouts have labeled Youngblood as a "possession wide receiver" at the next level, but Youngblood is out to shed that image.

"I see some of the plays that are made on Sundays, and I know that I can go out there and do the same sort of thing. It's been a dream of mine to play in the NFL."

Youngblood, a native of Jacksonville, Florida, finished his senior year at Clemson with 70 receptions for 897 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Also invited to the combine was Khaleed Vaughn, who finished the 2003 regular season with 46 total tackles, including 5 for loss, 2 sacks, and 3 passes broken up.

John Leake was not included on the initial invite list, but the Tigers' senior linebacker is playing in the East-West Shrine Game next weekend in San Francisco.
